I know a lot of the posts are likely to be computer related, but computer lovers and geeks can get up to some interesting extracurricular activities. Me personally I build things, some big some small. I am getting ready to build a large exoskeletal costume modeled around the Hunters from the Halo franchise. But more than that it will have an internal skeleton, onto which the detail plates are going to mount allowing me to use the same skeleton for other large creature costumes. Hopefully this thing will be ready for the 2013 convention season. As for small things, I build everything from dnd dice towers to book shelves. I am looking to start building small shoulder pets (another convention staple) and possibly becoming a vendor at the convention I work for. Look us up if you want another convention to add to your experiences. MidSouth Con Last year we had physicist Ethan Siegel as one of our guests of honor for our 30th year. Year 31 promises to be just as much fun.

So that's a little about my hobbies, more to come. Now let's hear about yours.

Sport rocketry. I too like to see things move with the push of a button.

Mostly, when I have free time, I'm either reading or writing.

I'm too idle to get off my backside - I play cards, Bridge, when I am away from a computer. It's an easy game to play, a very difficult one to play well.

Other than that, I do the cooking, because I enjoy it, and read a fair bit.

I am going to be away until about the 22nd October. Time on-line will be reduced and my internet access may be limited. PMs may not be replied to as quickly as normal !

I had a hobby super score this weekend. Driving home from running errands I saw a 50" + rear projection TV on the curb. I stopped and talked to the guy throwing it away and found out he had another one in his shed. I gave him 10 bucks and stripped the two TVs down to the shells. Made it out with two concentric fresnel lenses a couple of glare screens, two sheets of acrylic, two mirrors, and six double convex lenses. The fresnels alone would have been around 150 dollars if I'd bought them online. As they say, one man's trash is another man's treasure.

Programming mostly, I used to go fly-fishing a lot, but I haven't been out in a while.
