So, given that this is a Mac forum, we can all safely assume we love the Mac computers.

We currently have the "Man Thread', Official What do you drive", etc..

I think we should have a thread for people to talk about there other hobbies, what do you do when not on the Mac?

I'll start it off!

Other hobbies include;
Racing RC Cars
Flying RC Heli's (very fun but sucks when you crash!)
Dirtbike riding in Glamis, Giant Rock, etc
Drinking Beer

My other hobbies include, riding my classic Harley motorcycle whenever possible, fly fishing (again, whenever possible), dating a great woman (also whenever possible), and supporting my daughter's hobbies. But hey, I enjoy all of them.

My hobbies are:

1) Angling ( some call it fishing )
2) Life Long Learning
3) Taking care of my family

To be honest, most of the free time goes to fishing, where you can find me at sea or at a river , pond or lake, trying to catch that one special specimen.

Cheers

A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude towards the problem. You understand ?

Main hobby is car detailing for me, spending money on it second. Others include, photography, cycling, walking, movies/TV/music.

Wouldn't actually consider computing as a hobby, just use it to access the internet and do some photoshop work at home.

Deal with computers at work - formatting, updating, maintaining, fixing problems, deploying etc - (not my main job thankfully) and I can't stand it anymore. Do enjoy my job as a 'Photoshop guy' though.
Before I got into cars I loved dealing with PCs, but I suppose things change.
