    Geeks and Hobbies.

    My hobbies are a mixture of uber geek and not so geeky.

    Sea Fishing, Shooting, Remote control Planes and Helis (with youtube vids), computer games, Dog walking and training, kids.

    Mainly the planes and learning to avoid the ground with helicopters at the moment. Though the guns come a close second.

    So what do you guys do to let off steam, and yes certain IT equipment has made a brief last appearance at the business end of a .45 BP pistol before you ask.

    I hope it wasn't the unintelligent keyboard interface device!

    My life outside school largely seems to revolve around rugby and hockey matches for my children!

    However in my 'free time' (?) Family History, Sudoku, Gardening, Cycling and Theatre visits

    I ran a Guide unit for 11 years, but had to give it up recently as I simply ran out of time for me.

    Medieval archery, http://www.companionsofthelongbow.co.uk/
    That also involves some re-enactment
    Football supporter - Season ticket holder at Cheltenham Town, also support Liverpool.
    Xbox - PES, Forza, COD4
    I was at one point involved in internet radio, and wouldn't mind having another go, but its all a bit too costly.
