Away from computers? Is there any other thing there? :D

Now seriously, I usually enjoy travelleing (Although with my budget it is a bit "problematic"), I also enjoy the theater (Although there aren't many nice plays around my city),... so most I spend most of my time away from the computer taking photo shots (Not a very good photographer I must say) or enjoying water sports (Latelly into windsurfing).

I am a car guy. I do stupid things to my car. Go fast for a day or two. Watch it break, fix it, then start the process over again. lol

I actually try to stay away from the computer during weekends.lol So I read books, write, and play video games. I also like to travel sometimes. But most of the time, I just go to the mall and hang out, eat, and watch movies. =)

Away from the computer? I check my mail using my phone. LOL The world now - at least if you are working - is so techy and you will be left behind if you just miss a few days of computer time. >_<

But.. well.. I enjoy watching National Geographic channel and Glee! I am a Gleek!

I feel like I am always on the computer, in a good way. However, when I do manage to tear myself away, I love to go to the movies and can be caught readying spy books!

I really enjoy making a nice meal which almost always includes grilling something on my gas grill. I used to like charcoal grilling but it takes too much time to get ready and dirty too.

I have a small home but since I like movies so much, I built a full-blown theater in the basement and love to watch movies down there with my family and friends.

Also like cycling and hope to get a new bike that is nicer and faster then what I have!

Fine dining and movies.

Try to get out at least twice a week.

Also hit the gym 5 days a week. Good for the stamina to keep me going on long days on the computer.

Guys? They either mingle with cars or sports. It's quite the nature of men to be around these things. Don't you think so?

I indulge in my need for speed - on 4 wheels, or 2, when the weather permits.

Usually, when I rest my eyes off computers, I do mechanics work for my car or setting up new parts for it. Then, I always go to car shows to get some car fashion idea.

I hate TV except comedy and a few interesting history or docu programs so I'll research what's on online and maybe plan pc work around what I discover.
I'm a sucker for anything with black and white footage even though it's mainly war stuff but old Hollywood greats are a real treat!
Love to have background music when I'm online and unfortunately have almost got into the habit of only being really conscious of music if it's loud and aggressive.

But what I mainly like doing is playing with the grand-kids when they're visiting!!!

Hi,
I posted a reply to this thread about 10 minutes ago but new to the forum so don't know how things work and can't see my post anywhere.
Anyway, at the risk of repeating myself, all I said was that whilst I don't like TV, I'll generally watch comedy (used to dream of writing a successful sitcom for the BBC and have got the rejection letters to prove it - but at least they wrote back!) and any black & white footage intrigues me especially vintage Hollywood stuff and some of the great British comedies (e.g Boulting Brothers films).
But playing with my Grand-kids when they're visiting is my number one favourite occupation!! Unfortunately only see them once or twice a week so it's mainly flipping from one screen to the other with the occasional meal in between.
What a life!

Helen, we get a lot of spammers, ESPECIALLY in this thread for some reason, and there's a purposeful delay. Welcome. You seem legitimate so far. May I ask why you bothered to join the UltraVNC forum and only posted non-technical posts so far? I'm genuinely curious....

Just as a side-note, the three posters before you were just banned, because - you guessed it - they turned out as spammers. Slowly but surely. And the fight goes on ...

For SOME reason, this particular thread acts as a magnet for new spammers. (Just had to whack another one.)

I'm going to go ahead and lock it now. If Oliver or other mods disagree, please feel free to re-open it. Thanks.
