Default Spare time

Just wondering... do you guys ever get sick of computers, iPods etc. How often do you pursue other hobbies?

Do you ever sometimes think "Hey, I've spent too much time at the computer" etc. and feel desperate to do something else?

For me, computers are my other hobby. I'm spending most of my day in class and doing work. But I also practice guitar for about an hour a day and enjoy modifying and racing my car every once in a while. So I guess I've just got too much to do.

I also have lots of other hobbies, such as DJ'ing, otudoors stuf (bike riding, hiking, etc), hot bois, party mode and shopping.

Yes, I get fed up easily. Nowdays, I get tired on going on the net in forums and all. I spend time with family, whatch TV, go biking...you know...the everyday life. Now, as I will get a job, things will be completely changed. The arrival of Core 2 Duo in my house, the car liscence and full Permit, me looking for a Toyota Echo or something with an Acura...I get to taste life in real now...and PCs are and will remain the main part of life...as I am going to do this for a living.

Default Re: Spare time

Once money comes in, we are talking seriously...and when I mean serious, it's serious. Once I will work PERMANENTLY in a computer shop...or even in HP or Matrox buildings, I will be only working with PCs. Okay, I might have spare times and try to pop in here, but when David dies (Life goes on...no one is invincible), I might be an extreme old fart (Man...It's baby food time!) but if the forum is still on...higly doubts it lol...but if it is, I can try to pop in..and finish the job...til I die.

I've occasionally pursued different hobbies. One of my favorites was these little cars called Tamiya Cars, and they ran along these walled tracks. It was pretty fun saving up money to buy better parts and tuning the gears and such. Or another one is my old hobby with Legos. It's just fun to take out that giant box of Legos I have and just let my imagination roll. Very fun.

Default Re: Spare time

well a computer for me is just something that I use to waste my spare time. I usually don't have anything better to do (exept I could study for school, but that is just way too boring) so I sit infront of the pc. But there are those times when I don't have anything to do on the pc, which suck because then I don't know what to do.

Default Re: Spare time

computers are addicting to some, but for me i love fixing them. mostly for playing video games and music editing for me, but i do have to say there has to be a limit, and don't let the computer rule your life..

get outdoors and do stuff, enjoy life, take time to enjoy the simple things in life...like spending time with someone you haven't seen in years. write a letter off to someone just because, and having more than one hobby is a must.

Yes, I understand what you mean there, but people like me and probably Alvino and ownage are into PCs and tend to do that for a living. It won't rule over, but will play a major part in life.

Well, I don't even know if I shall see my 50 years. When I meant old fart, is around 90 years old. David will read this, but he knows it's part of life.

i can totally relate to what you said about pc's being playing a big role in your life, computer's & music are my life...one very good thing is that at least there will never be a shortage of software for the pc, and i'm always playing around with new software.

I usually practice guitar or something. The PC is just a place to go when I have nothing to do... which is like always. But going for a walk in the bush and checking out nature is fuN!!!

I'm a serious SciFi and anime buff. So if not online I've most likely got my nose in the tube watching SciFi channel and Cartoon network. Other than that I still take pictures and take care of my little Cleo.

I tend to spend most of my working day on the computer so when at home I like to relax, go to the gym, bars, clubs etc, the puter is normally on though when I am indoors, but its not used for much more then keeping in contact with friends and writing assignments, work projects.

I love reading, so a good book, and music in the background is my idea of a good night in on occasion.

Yeah I alway like to have a go at other hobbies rather than computing. It always sounds sad when people say what are your hobbies and you say computing!!
