What do you do in your "Free time"? Something to recommend?


Well I do lots of crazy things, actually right now I'm looking for some good book to read.

Recently I've joined a web site called GS Poetry, here's the link; http://www.gspoetry.com/ ...it's pretty cool, lots of girls too... ... and if you submit a poem people can rate it and so on... some of those people even fell in love.

I'll update here, just wanted to start a thread, from which I believe we all could benefit.

Cheers!

I normally get on LQ, slashdot, packet storm security, hackaday, and telnet over to the telehack server.

All my time is free (well, more or less). Reading (fiction & non-fiction (wide range of subjects)), going out, watching the 0.01% of TV that's worth watching, messing about on my computers, falling asleep...zzzzzzzzzzz

Chess and LQ mainly. I've also begun to participate in a (scientific) open source project.

Being of the same vintage as Brian (here's to us, who's like us, very few, and they're all dead!) I should have plenty of free time. I also have 35 volumes of stamps, 9 volumes of tarot cards, about 2000 toy soldiers, about 2000 books ... Free time? what's that?

Well, in the free time that I have I usually jog at least once a day, and use the computer the rest of the time (surfing the net, games, etc.), I do try to optimize any electronic equipment I own (just messing with the settings till I break it, kinda like I do with computers), sometimes I watch TV (rarely).

I guess I am a geek. I really can't think of anything else to do. I mean, I don't like going out. People are very demanding and they always wanna go to some smoke-filled bar or disco, which I hate.

I trade drugs, slaves and arms between bouts of money laundering, extortion and contract killing but somehow there's never any time for them

Yeah it has quite a few. But it's still a hell of a game.

I go find any place with less crowd to practice free running and kick boxing Or I find myself in remote places on my Yamaha.
