    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.

    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.

    Shooting, electronics, wii, wife and daughters,
    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...)

    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.

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

    More shooters here that I expected. I also have an explosives licence, that fact may be put on my CV's >

    hmm ... hobbies ...

    Isn't that something you do when you have a life?

    erm ...

    EduGeek
    Too many other online forums / mailing lists / newsgroups
    Online gaming (WoW mainly)
    Wii
    Eating Pizza / chocolate (not so much a hobby but a way of life)

    erm ...

    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.

    erm ...

    oh ... I nearly forget ...

    Spending time with my better half (my wife that is ... not the computer!!!)

    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
