Lol, that first and foremost, but when it comes to my jewelry, I throw it in with techniques as my approach to that kind of jewelry is different than the other forms I make as regards to construction and design.

My major hobby for the past few years has been learning circus arts; I'm currently taking classes in acrobatics and gymnastics wheel, and training on the straps outside of class. (If you search for Zlosk on YouTube, there are a few videos.) I still homebrew every so often, but now that good beer is readily available (Chicago currently has a booming craft beer scene), I don't do it as much as I once did. Other than that, I've been playing videogames (currently Orcs Must Die, soon to be Skyrim), and I just finished reading a book about data compression, so I hope to be playing around/programming again in the near future.

Other hobbies, crikey that's quite a bit. There's writing, my major one. Still working on getting published though, hehe. Like a lot of other people here, there's gaming, a lot of table-top stuff, though I do venture into Dwarf Fortress every now and then. Also into making games, been working with the OHRRPGCE for some time now.

Speaking of gaming, what's everyone think of doing a play-by-post D&D game or something here?

I seem to be well spread out when it comes to hobbies. I like to juggle, I can juggle five balls. I am also quite skilled with a diabolo, I can do three of them on a string. If you aren't familiar with a diabolo, I would highly suggest finding them on youtube. I own a forge and occasionally make a couple pieces with that. I practice kendo and cutting with a katana, my thickest tree cut with one cut is 5". I like to do mig welding on the weekends, that's how I made my forge and grinder stand. I can ride a unicycle fairly well. I used to make model rockets. I am perty darn good at throwing pots on the pottery wheel. I am currently learning how to make blown glass. Lets see, what have we covered so far, I can me a potter, a mailler, a welder, a glassblower, a blacksmith, a juggler, or a modelmaker. Yeah, I seem to be all over the place.

Hobbies? I thought this was my hobby until it suddenly went serious. LEGO robots would be my other thing.

I can also juggle (but only 3 balls) and I like poi twirling, but I'm fairly crap at it. I use to be very much into film photography but I don't have a darkroom and they are starting to look at me strangely when I take in a roll of film and ask for a new one.....mostly because some places have even stopped stocking film.

Chainmail taught me how to juggle. Or rather, I made juggling balls out of chainmail, then taught myself to juggle with them. Also only 3. Beyond 3 gets ridiculous.


There is no such thing as weave ownership. If someone produces a weave sample, they own that physical piece of mail, but not rights to the weave pattern itself.

this is shocking..

do you also advocate the use of dos 6.22?

you know what's nice? not having to memorize every table from the players handbook.
