Though I came across this site purely by accident, it looks like my kind of place.

Computers (including pc gaming, of course) have been a hobby* of mine since the first family machine back in '94. It was a beast...DX486 66 mHz, 8 megs of RAM, 2 speed CDROM, 4800 Baud modem, and a hard drive smaller than a CD.

I am a full time CS student, and work part time as well. If I can find time between all that, I get some gaming in to distract myself from the stress of daily life. Astronomy has been another life long interest. My wife and I go hiking now and then, and I ski when I can. And of course, ending a week by hanging out with friends at various local brew pubs is always a good thing (ahh Oregon, the micro-brew capitol of the world).

*I prefer the use of the term "hobby," but I suppose it could easily be replaced with other phrases such as "obsession" and/or "mental illness." My wife would probably suggest the latter.
