I’m a computer programmer by hobby and by trade. I’ve been fascinated by these devices and what can be done with them since I was a child. They’ve repaid the attention well.
I’m an amateur photographer. I bought myself a decent camera some years ago and have been clicking away happily ever since. At least two people here are using pictures I’ve taken on their profile (no, neither of them are me).
I mostly read history, though I’ve amassed a great deal of SF over the years too, among other bits and pieces. Political biographies occasionally catch my attention too; politicians are a lot less dull when writing for posterity rather than speaking for the headlines. (Actually I can’t help but feel that on the whole they were much more interesting in the 1980s.)
I’ve managed to grow a few edible or attractive things in the garden.
