There are loads of fun (or at least interesting) things you can do in your spare time. I’ve found some of them.
Of course, the most important is my overall plan for world domination. But there are others as well…
I was on my college’s Crew team for a little while. That was pretty fun, and you get a good rush going as fast as a crew boat does just by manpower alone. Unfortunatly, with practices beginning around 5:00 in the morning, I would get back exhausted, and sleep through all my classes. Hence, crew did not become my profession.
Also in college, I was an active usenet poster. Unfortunately, 99.9% of all my correspondance was on private university groups, which dont get exported anywhere else. So, now I have to start over.
When I have the time (and the money), I like to work on my car. I have a 2001 Camaro Super Sport. It currently has 320 horsepower. I’ve only added a front tower brace, but my next planned upgrade is to install subframe connectors. I believe that this will greatly improve handling and cornering.
I like to program computers. I’ve even written a game (or several games, depending on how you look at it). None of them seem to get completely finished, though, before I come up with the next great idea for what I want to do with it, and decide to start over. Still, there’s enough completed to play around with it — just not enough to sell and make me rich beyond my wildest dreams (and thereby get me started on taking over the world — see above).
In February of 2002, I modified the common Linux application “amor” to render 3D characters. You can take a look at my version here, as well as follow some links to the original.
From time to time, I have been responsible for running small to medium sized ISP’s.
More recently, I’ve started to go to the gym. I really need to get in better shape. So far, it’s going something like this.
More to come as I have time to work on this section.
