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!

Wow, so many geek hobbies? I'm happy when I get to spend time away from the computer screen!

Besides a lot of reading, I'm enjoying all things music and I'm getting into outdoor activities like sports and camping lately.

Agreed. I work full time in IT and also do consulting work and development on the side. When I'm not trying to make a living I play music and golf. My wife is eight months pregnant, been spending a lot of time getting ready for the new born as well. Hardly do any recreational computing these days. Usually when I sit down in front of a computer outside of work I'm reading news or paying bills but sometimes I do get a wild hair and dive off into some kind of computer hobbyist type stuff, just don't spend nearly the time I used to though.
