General computer geekery, walking, cycling, geocaching, travelling, horses and horse riding, photography; but as I run my own business from home as well I'm getting to do these less and less nowadays.

General Computer stuff, Motorbike riding and maintenance (Done some night classes), Taking the dog for a drag (she isnt a keen walker :P ) and last but not least my newest hobby which is combining my computer skills with more practical hands on skills........ Building and Arcade machine from scratch. I am 95 % finished now on the wood working just gotta make the control panel.

Listening to classical music

Can sympathise with you there. I once took on the overflow of a couple of wedding photographers, and waiting for the lab to return the shots was terrible. I couldn't sleep and eventually gave it up after a few months.

True Geeks wouldn't have any hobbies that involved a) Other people, or b) leaving the house.
I can understand that you might WANT to do the latter two, but it would involve a long stretch at Her Majesties pleasure in Dartmoor Prison... (Yes, I do realise that you have got a comma in the correct place for your meaning...)
Shooting, electronics, wii, wife and daughters,
I do lighting and sound for an amateur dramatics society, and as we own a 250 seat theatre that needs constant maintenance etc it keeps me busy. I like being outdoors, but haven't partaken for a long time. Reading too!

I'm a bit of an audiophile, so that's where a lot of money goes. Also photography and cycling.

In no particular order:
Geeking out (Networks and FOSS are important)
Cycling (I've just got back and am sat here covered in mud and bleeding since it happens)
Music...I play bass, 6-string and i used to play euphonium
Fishing (Course and Fly)
Drinking (Real ales )

Carp, coarse and sea fishing

Oh yeah, I forgot fishing, but i haven't been fishing in ages as my mate who i used to go with moved away

That took me too long to get, but I laughed all the harder for it.

hmm ... hobbies ...
Isn't that something you do when you have a life?
Too many other online forums / mailing lists / newsgroups
Online gaming (WoW mainly)
Eating Pizza / chocolate (not so much a hobby but a way of life)
I *used* to Fence (sabre preferred but happy with foil), various Martial Arts (Judo and Ju Jutsu mainly but a few more fun things too), cycle, swim, run, etc but that disappeared due a dodgy knee.
The only other thing is reading. I get through 2-3 books a week on average.
oh ... I nearly forget ...
Spending time with my better half (my wife that is ... not the computer!!!)

Fishing (Sea, Fly, Coarse), Motorcycling.
Motorcycling to fishing locations.
There's a pattern here
(Video games also)

The only hobby I have time to do on the side of work and university is Bellringing! It's far more interesting than many people think
