OSNews, Generic OSes Hobbies. Where would the computer industry be without them? Arguably, there wouldn't be a computer industry had it not been for hobbyists in the first place. The ineffable need to scratch an itch does still percolate even in this closed down world of big mainstream technology from big companies opposed to the little guy innovating. OSNews asks, what are you working on? We want to hear from you about your hobby projects (technology related or otherwise) to get a sense of what the community is cooking up for love of it, rather than because you're paid to do so. Share and enjoy!

I'm writing some scripts to convert local online event calendars into iCalendar format, and then present them through a simple web-based iCalendar aggregator: http://arnout.engelen.eu:8082 .

I play sax in a local bigband and a recently-founded rockabilly cover band, wrote a simple arrangement for it this weekend: http://arnout.engelen.eu/files/dev/linuxmusicians/arrangements/stra...

I run 1-2 times a week, and participate in (recreational) races of 6-15km - if i keep this up I'd like to start training for longer distances, and do a fun marathon (like Berlin) at some point.
