Non-Gaming Hobbies

I was just curious of everyone's non-gaming hobbies.

I've picked of a new one myself. I've been making polymer clay keycaps for mechanical keyboards.
I made one today that I was pretty proud of and I think the community would enjoy. Making a controller this small was deceptively hard, but I think it came out pretty well. Oh, there is also a Sobble there as well for a friend because #GrookyGang all the way. :P

    Orange Pi is a thing. A competitor. Not sure if they are non-profit. I could program mine 7x24 if I didn't need sleep or a day job.

    LOL, so the BLUE is left over from the days where we could customize the looks of our blogs. *Cough* @admin staff ;)

    @datagod Thank you for the compliment. I just started... so it's a big rough around the edges.

    @trivia212005 I love going for walks too. Having a dog really pushes it on me :P
    I'd love to see some of your drawings.

    Here are a few more images of what I've made so far.

    Just a quick example. This is a 4.5 inch Hyperpixel display on a Raspberry Pi 3. I 3D printed the case. I wrote a program that looks for WIFI traffic and records the devices it encounters, along with GPS information.

    This is part of a passive surveillance system I am building. People come on to my property, the system records their phone information (if they are carrying one). Just a fun project that shows how much info our phones are constantly broadcasting t othe world. "HEY! I am a Nokia phone! Any WIFI out there? I last connected to TimHortonsWifi. Here is my MAC address. THANKS!!".

    While the program is running, it records everything to a logfile. Meanwhile it displays a matrix screen saver.

    Well the first one for me is music. I have been a musician for most of my life. This July 12th will mark 22 years of me playing guitar. I also play drums, bass, and piano. Piano being the instrument I have played the longest. Drums I learned in high school music courses. I've played in a ton of bands over the years every thing from country to blues to metal to electronic music.

    Second hobby of mine is a lot of outdoors stuff. During the summer I volunteer my time to teaching kids how to fish. The fall I teach kids hunter's safety and next year Im gonna be a coach for my local high school trap shooting team.

    My third hobby is baseball. I very rarely miss baseball games from my favorite team and during the summer months on top of teaching kids the ways of the outdoors I coach a men's softball team.

    Fourth is just helping out around my community. From volunteering at the food pantry to volunteering in the winter for clothes drives for the homeless. I like to keep busy so with all of this and gaming I should be set for a while :)

    Today of course I realize I have a lot of other interests:

    Cooking (BBQ, Smoker, Beef Jerky, Salmon, Curry dishes, roasts, soups, sauces)

    Reading Sci Fi (currently reading The Expanse series)

    Shooting stuff. Blowing stuff up. Bonfires too.






    My wife has been taking lessons from a retired sniper. She loves the sport more than I do. I just like plinking things.


    My cowboy gun. Henry 22Magnum. 1880s design. So fun to use.

    I've kinda swapped video games for table tennis, trying to resurrect my former skills.
    It's taking a while... ;)

    I collect natural curiosities which takes me to a bunch of places I like to go - yard sales/antique stores, river and Creek beds, mines, the beach, the woods, etc... Here are some pictures. I've got a pretty solid insect collection and am growing my shell collection.

    I also collect and sell rare books

    And I swim a lot.
