Has anyone got any personal projects they are doing at the weekend or sometime soon.
Mine is basically backing up all my media to cloud/external HDD and then stripping down my pc giving it a good clean out then a fresh install.
Start looking into developing android apps
My major project is in half term setting up a media server for my house.
it'll be interesting to see what others are doing.

extending my wired network infrastructure into my roof space from my office and relocating the comms cabinet... some crap my missus has come up with about needing to change the bathroom into a bedroom, and my office into bathroom in the name of making room for future offspring.... And setting up raspbmc again after I had to wipe my SD to use it for something else!

Finishing off my man cave. Making some wooden trinket boxes with inlaid veneer on top (for valentines present). Making a sign for the house. Finishing a wooden clock. There's a quad copter somewhere on the list too!
Too many projects ... too little time.

Raspbmc happened, very successfully. The cables for the wired infrastructure all got extended and the trunking put up, but I haven't completed yet... Currently scheduled for first weekend in march!

Sorting the gardens for the new year.
Repairing the catrun, as the snow caused some mild damage.
Get the GCH serviced and replace the 3 port valve as it's woken tiny tot twice now.
Board out the loft
Remove each and every socket and 240v switch to verify wiring condition (do not ask)
Move NTE5 Master socket/router/NAS etc up high (little fingers)
Finish wiring the solar panel to the battery bank of SLAs.
reconcreting in the drain cover at the end of the drive, again
Full service on the Astra and fabia, full tech workup on the ECUS and data to find any issues. I know the Astra has an exhaust blow, and the post-cat lambda is throwing out bunk data about the cat running under par. However, an analyser disagrees. That's going to be fun.
Tear down the spare Astra, junk the remainder after removing all common parts.
In between that, attend to both currently sick children, and a missus at the end of her tether. It's a wee laugh, I tell you.
Oh yes. And endless, endless washing without cease. Especially nappies. Ha. And probably some new brushes on the washer. IT also takes a running jump outside of work.

Waiting for junior to make his entrance here in the next 3/4 weeks, had a mad few weeks of a nesting wife demanding a nursery though ! had to redecorate the entire house and paint it all, which I hated but at the same time I am glad its done now
Can't wait now
Feeling so much better as well now that I gave up World of Warcraft 6 weeks ago and limit my IT time outside of work, getting out and about more too which is better by far now
Tempted to get a rasp pi and play with it, but it would only be thrown to one side when junior arrives

Replacing the Gearbox on 1 of my Airsoft guns and putting a new Spring in another.

Got a little stack of friends and family laptops to attend to that I have been putting of. A new animation project to work through and if time permits new tattoos to be done!
