Wow ! I see similar interests being posted here.

Am a big fan of Chess .. Chess and Chess all the time.
When it comes to strategy game on the field you can see me playing football.

Those were nice times when I used to play Chess all the time.
Apart from that I do write poems in Tamil, I love doing that. Smilie

We should have a Unix.com email chess tournament or something.

I haven't played for a few years though, but at one point was very.... adequate.

I spend most of my free time with my family, taking the kids out and going to the beach now that the weather is warming up. I enjoy food (a bit too much) and like to cook.

I also read a lot, although most of what I read is Unix related so that doesn't really count as "something else" Smilie

I'm a dabbler in many areas. I have dipped my fingers in chemistry, video games, chess, football, trekking, reading, strategy games, volleyball.

I learned to play volleyball at the previous company. Even managed to block a spiker once. I played mostly as libero.

I have been playing Football since school, and plan to join the team of the current organization.

Reading, Chess (Just ordered a new yellow chronos my original has died), Backgammon, Wing Chun and various and assorted computer games. I would love to get back into music but was a bit scarred by a tyrannical violin instructor in my youth Smilie

Hi everybody.
Well, at this time I do not have much spare time but boxing and sports in general is what I like most (play them, I mean). Appart from that, going out with my friends and wife to have some "caņitas y pinchos"* is the other option Smilie

* caņitas: spanish word to say, more or less, draught beer served in small glasses.
pinchos: In Spain we only visit bars where pinchos are served along with caņas. Or, in other words, we only drink when it's accompained with some food Smilie

Seems like a good chance to introduce myself Smilie I've been reading these forums for a while, usually as a result of a google search for something. Figured it was time I made an account and started to 'give back' a little.

So howdie all!

Hobbies for me have taken a bit of a back seat for now as I've just started a business on the side and am currently running it and doing my day job too -> not that much time left in the 24hrs for sleeping let alone playing Smilie

Before that (and hopefully after things settle down), I have been learning to fly a hang glider (I'd recommend this to all, it's an amasing rush), open circuit scuba diving (SSI / PADI AOW) and hanging out on the beach with my two dogs (a Golden Retriever and a Newfoundland) Smilie

I follow Dexter, Boston Legal, Stargate Atlantis and The Unit on TV, can enjoy a good multiplayer computer game occasionally, but never really enjoyed chess much Smilie

Trekking/Tramping/Hiking is nice with the dogs but otherwise doesn't do lots for me, I'm fairly fit but clearly have too short an attention span so start to get bored :/ I can certainly appreciate the appeal though, just that it's not really for me.
