yup. my full time job has me in front of a computer all day long. i work for a background screening company, and my department is in charge of report quality. either i check reports for quality, or monitor my team's progress and error rates. i find staring at two lcd monitors cool. it's like using a bloomberg terminal. hehe. you may find this weird or geeky, but this is my type of job: just working in front of a computer all day long. it looks boring, but your mind works hard in doing your job, running your computer and lots more.

I am a clinical laboratory scientist and work in a hospital laboratory. All of our instruments are operated by a computerized OS. Therefore I do spent all of my shift in front of one of several computers, in addition to our L.I.S. (laboratory information system). The only time I am away from a computer is when I am doing one of the very few manual lab tests that we still do.

yes i am a software engineer and my 3/4 of the day is in front of computer. Some times it feels frustrated to sit in front of the PC but then after a gap everything becomes a routine. I am in client based software development so it is thrilling as we come across different types of people(clients). And we get to learn many social things also.
