    I work too much lately...but - I love to fly fish, still love photography, especially when it isn't a job, and I live in one of the best places in the world to sail.

    Just haven't had time lately. Damn mortgage. :p

    Ooops forgot running.

    Used to be drawing as a kid. I swear, now more than 10 years later, my drawing skills have regressed heavily.

    I always wonder if i should have pursued by artistic ability vs. engineering. Sigh.

    Hobbies other than hanging out at MacRumors?

    I can think of only a few: managing Macs at a local school, hanging out with kids (mine or others), reading technical journals and learning about new technologies, doing math puzzles, listening to rock and other music and building up my music collection, reading newspapers and magazines, helping my wife with her volunteer work, family camp or other vacations, Internet surfing, researching random topics, telling corny jokes, reading fiction, "fun programming" (as opposed to "work programming"), going out to movies, museums, or other dates with family, watching certain TV shows (Lost, Alias, SNL, Carnivàle :( ), collecting certain books and magazines, photography, image-editing, movie-making, iChatting or e-mailing friends, planning kooky ways to give surprise gifts to people, planning April Fool's pranks, Origami, magic tricks, card games (especially Freecell), watching the Olympics, entering contests, and making long lists of things!

    Oooh and how could I forget about traveling. That is probably my favourite. Even more so than hockey, and possible more than eating. But then again I travel to eat.

    Music, almost any genre, and running - mainly sprinting. I'm almost never angry and I put it down to being able to sprint off all my negative energy to angry music. As the saying goes; "ever met an angry butcher?" :D


    Not that I usually run with a knife. ;)
