I don't have much free time anymore. Trying to combine my main job with developing websites is not easy. When I do have some free time I usually spend it on LQ or talking to people (yeah, real people)

I hope next year will be less hectic than this one.

That was exactly how I reacted. It's a spoof site. Mind you, I 'admire' the author's persistence and dedication

Oh man, this is a really lovely thread...

Lots of interesting hobbies. Some of you said that you like to play chess, well me too. I play on chess.com and man I'm good .

Beside that, I also like to watch a TV (how should I say?) show, here on Croatian television called "On the edge of science" where the author always has interesting guests and is exploring different phenomena, paranormal activities, aliens, space etc. Some good web site about that you can reccomend?

P.S.

@ Alexvader

"Tenshin Shoden Katori Sinto Ryu Kenjutsu ( Fencing )" sounds like a lot of fun...

@ John VV

Interesting, what exactly do you do?

Are you contracted, or under NASA directly?

FWIW, NASA have an open data policy, so one doesn't need to be affiliated with them to use their stuff (at least not for research!).

Hi

Shinto Ryu kenjutsu is quite nice and aesthetic, if you want to develop the forms... Kenjutsu is richer in technique than Kendo, for instance

Using a real katana is nice to develop the forms, and to gain better balance than a bokken, because the katana is slightly heavier, and has a different mass distribution, but remember... ONLY to develop the forms, ( Kata ), NO REAL SPARRING WITH THAT, IT IS A WEAPON not a toy...

Sparring is actually done with a bokken, which is a wooden simulation of a katana, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bokken

I would not call that fencing. Fencing is more like a strict form of dancing with a pole in your hand. In real combat, there are no rules, you can kick, bite, punch, etc.

I think it is probably more useful than fencing, right ? I haven't tried it.
