My main hobby is electronics with an emphasis on audio, and test and measurement. I like to build and modify audio amplifiers, as mindset and budget allows. The test bench is mostly geriatric Heathkit with a few bits of Hewlett Packard (courtesy Boeing Surplus) and Tektronics.
Music preferences are classical, ambient/newage, jazz or whatever grabs my fancy.
Aside from that I'm interested in technology of all sorts, but especially rocketry and energy systems. Some photography, a rare bit of science fiction and fantasy, and gardening. I attempted at one time to write and draw in science fiction and fantasy subjects, but my Muse has deserted me.
I hang out here to monitor the news and maybe pick up a few crumbs of physics and engineering--to the extremely limited extent I can understand it!
Does anyone need a QuadTech 1417 Standard Capacitor? (1 uF to 1F)

Anyone here play the Great Highland Bagpipe for fun, besides me?

Trying to keep up with science.
Raising kids. (a bit more than a hobby)
Boy Scouts. Boats. Cooking
Any new creative science or technology.
Science fiction of course. the old masters, terry pratchett, neal stephenson
Science fiction conventions, mostly ORYCON.
Filk= music about: science fiction, fantasy, SCA, computer programming, real science (of any flavor), usually written and performed by scientists, engineers, students, etc.
It also has lots of parody. (Hey, Anybody who does this stuff has to be able to laugh at themselves.)
It started out about space but branched out rapidly from there.
Check out to listen to some.
I just a sing along. I can't claim to make the stuff.
