    My schedule is pretty simple.

    job in the morning. site in the afternoon. site in the evening. site late at night.

    Of course, when school starts on Monday the 14th, I'll have to fit in homework and my classes in there somewhere.

    Oh yeah...I listen to music a lot.

    As you can see, I am almost 100% dedicated to computing

    I'm similar to Elledan, except that I do not like reading too much. I love experimenting with stuff. Sometimes I also talk to friends. (Well, what can I do if I'm only 13) .

    Edit:

    Forgot to mention I'm actually 14 (not 13)...

    Just wondering what everyone does when they're not hooked into SitePoint. What are some of your hobbies and interests besides computers?

    Oh go on then I'll go first. When I'm not on SP or not working (Which is not very often) I like to go cycling, spend plenty of time with my girlfriend and spend time with my nephews (What can I say, I'm a big kid at heart). I like listening to music and going to the cinema as well (Gets expensive though).

    I enjoy singing in my touring choir. Nothing else worth mentioning.

    Well, I play guitar, read a LOT of books, am 'playing' with my solder-iron if I can find time and I'm sort of a technology/science freak: I love experimenting!

    PS: When you take a look at my new site (which I will soon add to my signature) you'll see that I'm just a tech freak.

    My job in Nuclear Power and my web sites take up a lot of my free time. But If I'm not doing one of those two things, I'm riding my custom '93 fxdl or spending time with beautiful wife!

    Okay, since I started this topic, I'll go ahead and answer my own question

    In my free time I enjoy writing, reading, playing keyboard/synth, drawing 'furry' art, and hiking in the great outdoors. I also love to travel to new and interesting places (like Gibraltar, hehe), and study foreign languages and cultures.

    My newest hobby right now is movies. On the big screen or video I can't get enough. I like to watch them once for fun, twice to pick on little things you always miss the first time and then I start watching them to pick them apart technical bit by technical bit.

    Wayne you are as bad as me by the sounds of things when it comes to films. My girlfriend hates it when I pick out the little inconsistencies in films that we watch.

    Just as an aside, what did everybody think to MI2? Was I the only one that thought the first one was better (Which I must say was not to good either).

    Some of my interests include meditation, baseball, movies, swimming and being with my wife.

    I'm actually looking to make computers more of just a hobby in my life, and I'm going back to school to get my masters in education, and work as an elementary school teacher.

    I'm a movie junkie...when it comes to recent flicks, I've seen Gone In Sixty Seconds, Nutty Professor II, Hollow Man, Rocky & Bullwinkle, Mission Impossible II, X-Men, and The Perfect Storm...I love the whole experience of the movies; popcorn is a big part of it.

    I love biking as well; miles and miles around local neighborhoods...it's a great way to get to know the area anyway. I love music as well, and I don't care what *anyone* says, I'm starting my own boy band. Say hello to "90 Percent Humidity" - nice name, huh?

    Other than that I watch TV and play fantasy baseball...and real life baseball when I find the chance. Like most of the people here, however, I'm on computers more often than not (not counting sleep).

    I'm into films too (it's film in England, not movies ) I finished a film degree last year so I like to sit and watch videos while ruining it all for anyone else that is trying to watch the film.

    "Of course, this bit is taken straight out of Cinema Paradiso".

    The rest of the time I'm sat on the computer desparatley trying to get work, and failing...

    My brother is an Medical Technician who had the pleasure of working on the set of MI:2. Under his advice, I am waiting for it on video because he said that though it was better than MI, that it wasn't worth spending the $30-40 bucks (tickets and snacks) it would take to see it.

    Side Note:
    My brother said it was fun to watch them film it and one day he was talking to his partner and said "I hope this film is better than the first, which was a total waste of time and money". He hears from behind him, "I think it will be". When he turns around Tom Cruise was standing there.

    Oh man... You're all just lucky... I have to go to school from 8.30AM till 4PM. No country beats Belgium in those figures...

    After school I try to find time for my girlfriend (yep she comes first ), for my website, for sports, friends and for internet in general.

    I hate READING books. I never read book even if I have to do it for school... I hate things without interaction. You just read a book. It does nothing. It doesn't change.

    Wayne: Yikes! $30-40? How many people does that include?

    Re: the Tom Cruise story; which line did Cruise say? The part about it being a waste of time, or that he "thinks it'll be better"? Very interesting either way, to say the least.

    Oh and for the record, I thought the first was better.

    I enjoy rowing - I'm in my school's rowing club. I am training or rowing four days a week which is great fun and always a good laugh. My crew won the Ulster Under 16 Eight Champsionships last year

    Anyway I thought M:I 2 was absolute rubbish. Just like the first one. The only reason I went to see it was because my cousin likes that kind of trash, and as I was staying with him at the time I could hardly say no This movie was uninspiring and worst of all even *I* could point out numerous inconsistencies that spoilt the film. Overall rating: -6/10.

    By the way, the first M:I was so bad that I can't even remember what it was about. The only thing which I can remember is some guy getting spiked on top of an elevator. With any luck I will forget M:I 2 too.

    Ok let me start..

    Dutch and German are my native tongues.

    I have got 5 hours of french/week in school since I was 10 (now I'm 16) and my parents speak french to eachother.

    I learned english from the www and from TV. It is quite interesting how good you can learn a language on TV. All english TV programs have dutch text under it. They're not translated as in other countries.

    And I have done 3 years of Latin. Which means I can a little bit of Italian. But not much though. I would like to learn it at some later point.

    Wayne: Yikes! $30-40? How many people does that include?
    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

    That is with 2 people. Tickets run between $7 and $10 dollars a person depending on which theater you go to. Soda's are 3 to 4 dollars a piece, Large popcorn runs 4 to 6 dollars. Might get a candy (1 to 3 dollars) or a hot dog ($3.00) depending on my mood. Plus add parking if necessary.

    If I take my Fiance and our three kids it costs us around $50-60 bucks to go see a Movie. We took the kids to see "Dinosaur" at the El Capitan theater in Hollywood. It cost us close to $100 dollars for the movie, snacks, parking and to visit the attractions setup nextdoor.

    p.s. I don't believe in sneaking in food because I used to manage a movie theater when I was in High School. They make little to no money off of the ticket sales. One case in point was "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" which made hundreds of millions of dollars. The theater I worked at sold it out 5 times a day for weeks. They netted $10,000 dollars which barely covers the cost of employees, equipment and utilities to show it. Each showing on average cost the theater $400 dollars to show, If they sold $4000 dollars worth of tickets the theater breaks even because the studio takes an average of 90% of the ticket sales. Back then tickets only cost $4.00.
