    Before I had a child I used to have a 300g Reef Tank...all my extra time (and money [​IMG]) went into that...now I just seem to work (my own business). Do any of you have hobbies?

    Robots and guitar are my biggest hobbies right now. I have plenty of them and switch off fairly frequently.

    Photography. Haven't had as much time for artsy fartsy stuff with kids around (lots and lots of snap shot though). One of these days I'll have to round up the wife & kids, take them out to the park and shoot them...with my camera off course. I want to do some family portraits.

    I also keep an aquarium. (freshwater, heavily planted) It is almost too much work to make it look presentable at least 10 hours of my week are consumed by that thing. I almost wish that I could sell the darn thing. Anybody want to buy a 75 gallon aquarium?

    Riding my motorcycle is my main love. I also play guitar and am learning the piano.

    I write pointless code on obscure hardware. Lately I've been (poorly) playing the piano again.

    I make a conscious effort to get outside though, and in those cases it's usually basketball, hiking, or riding a mountain bike.

    My main hobby is playing video games, especially RPGs.
    Others are reading mainly sci-fi and fantasy novels, and a bit of music composition.

    Astronomy. I recently upgraded to a nicer scope, but unfortunately the weather has been more uncooperative than pleasant the past couple of weeks.

    School. As much as I hate the darn place, I get a helluva lot of enjoyment out of getting nice grades. I also like the satisfaction of making a project pretty.

    Photography used to be my hobby until my girls were born. While I still take pictures, its really only of them. I used to dedicate a lot of time, energy and money in the hobby but now my focus is spending time with them.

    I also run daily, though I'm not sure if you want to call it a hobby or my fear of staving off obesity. :eek:

    Yes, I can relate to that. For me, decades behind me now.

    Surfing! And I wish the rain in Los Angeles would quit so I could get back to it.

    Unfortunately school right now. When I have had a break it is just doing the normal things, tv, internet and sleep.

    The newest hobby would be gambling I guess. Moved from Seattle to Philly, Atlantic City is only 63 miles away!

    Dungeons & Dragons, saltwater aquariums, playing music, 3D graphics apps, writing, and tending to the critters on my hobby farm... when I'm not working or helping my wife with our 7 kids, that is.
