Do you guys have anything else that money flows continuously into?


I am starting to get into DIY speakers and amps now, then the next project is possibly a super seven kit car.

Home repair. It's a natural partner to HTPCs - very DIY. You could hire/buy, but it would be very expensive. If you do it yourself, you can get exactly what you're looking for. I play with the PC stuff in the winter when it's too cold & rainy out to work on the house, and the house in the spring/summer.


I've been instructed that I'm repainting half the darn house before baby #2 arrives [in 10 weeks], and in the early summer I am to build a brick patio. My wife says that this year the HTPC project needs to go dormant somewhere around 3/31, cuz she'll be using me pretty fulltime around the clock then.

My main other 'time and money flows into' hobby is ham radio. NTSC is much more fun to send than to receive. Others include roller coasters, antique television sets, and 'a few cool toys on Ebay that I had (or wish I had) when I was a kid'.

Audio but trying not to become a 'phile...


Sailing...


Radio control flying bits (helis / planes / weird stuff)... Used to be involved with Hangliding / paragliding / skydiving / glider flying at various times in the last 10 years they are all out due to my current location but basically I get a kick out of being airborne and second hand is the best RC can offer...


Wine... Women... Song... :cool:

A hobby similar to this one - Audio/Video data


Publishing my own web page as noted on Audio/Video data, super-efficient house design (insulated concrete domes), alternative energy, rainwater collection, organic farming, super-realism (3-D graphic artwork in oil, acrylic, CAD...), super-efficient transportation (pedal, gas or electric powered), RC electric sailplanes....


Funny stgdz you mentioned DIY speakers - I have A TON of info and will be putting up a web page soon for that. I wanted to go with a 4-way all 1st order xover ceramic spherical design - but headphones really sparked my interest. ;)


You should check out my headphones page with hyperlinks :D

Besides Home Theater, I'm also into cycling, off-road motorcycles, target shooting (air & powder), gardening, bird watching (such as it is in this area), whale watching.

Would like to take up ocean kayaking this summer. Oh, I'm looking into building a chopper; complete kits can be had now!

Just getting back into photography again, thanks to a brand new Digital Rebel.

My wife and I also plan on getting a pair of touring kayaks sometime this year. So, I'm looking forward to that.

I dug a big hole in my back yard and throw money in it. Ohh no!!!!, I mean I go boating.


I tried the automotive hobbie, but that 1970 porsche is just rusting in my driveway, Any takers?


As far as wood working and home improvment, I am a home improvement contractor who does not want to take his work home with him.
