    Project: Don't let the wife know #3

    Well, I have been running my NZXT case, fans, and water cooling for a while. I ordered a new Corsair case, and went back to all Corsair fans, water cooling, and components. I really just enjoy Corsair stuff so much more. Thier quality of their cases are top notch!

    Slides backup & restoration

    I think I am going to purchase the Epson Perfection v600 scanner. I have a lot of slides that my parents took of us growing up (apparently slides were the thing back in the day). But I want to start to get them scanned in before something happens to them and we lose them forever. It has some...

    RC Vehicles

    I think we have talked about this before on here. Seems like we all want to get one. Well I was at a hobby store yesterday, and I saw rock crawlers are pretty hot right now. So I picked up this little beast. Now if it would only quit raining so that I could go play with it...

    Flying kites

    I always had fun flying kites when I was a kid. I have a couple of cheap models for the kids, but recently bought a nice delta kite for myself. They are cheap these days. It's nice a fast to setup/put away, and has simple controls. You do see quite a few on along the coastal areas. There is just...

    RC hobby cars

    My son is into remote controlled cars and he wants a new one for Christmas. Anybody know what the good brands are these days? When I was a kid, I had a Tyco Turbo Hopper and that thing was awesome. He's only 4 so we don't have to get too carried away.

    Metal detectors

    Strange I thought I made a thread awhile back, but I guess not. Anyways I have been wanting a metal detector for quite some time now. I came across a deal, and while not the exact one I wanted, this one is plenty for me now. I got to play with it this weekend. I tried it in my back yard. My...

    Rock tumblers

    I thought I would make a post of a little hobby that I have been doing for the past couple of weeks. I got my old rock tumbler from my parents that I had growing up. I thought it would be a fun project for my Daughter. I ordered some new grit packets off of Amazon. I spent a few weeks collecting...

    Project "Don't let the wife know"

    Soldering as a hobby

    Anyone do a lot of solder work?  I've generally not been the greatest at this, but one sister-in-law had brought a number of poorly treated electronic devices that needed some work.  I've soldered a 3.5mm jack onto something that was torn off before, so she had hoped I could fix them.  They've...

    Gold panning

    Has anyone ever gone gold panning before? I had some Amazon credit and since I live in the heartland for this I thought why not? I picked up some 14" pans and two snuffers to be able to though in the back of the car in case were out by a stream or something. Hey you never know...

    Declaration of intent (hobby-related)

    I have been losing weight again and have no plans for the future. I was 223 pounds in April. I started my diet on April 17th and am down to 185 today, which means I have lost 38 pounds as of today, July 19th. That's ~40 pounds in almost exactly 3 months. I'm not here to brag, just setting a...

    Who here collects watches?

    Does anyone else have an unhealthy obsession with them? I have always loved them. Someday when I become rich I will have my Rolex. In the meantime I am addicted to others. Just picked up a new one. What do you think?

    Do you like to Garden as a hobby?

    Well as seen in the recent purchase, we picked up a number of items last night to start work on the flower garden that surrounds the outside of our townhome.  One of these days when rain isn't in the forcast I need to get out and spray round up on everything.  There is a lot of crab grass in...

    Let's talk Legos

    Who misses this wonderful toy? I loved these growing up. I had so many sets. It seems like nowadays they are so expensive just for a little box. And they seem to make them less quality. But I remember the days of the pirate sets, or the robin hood sets, etc. The techniques sets were cool also.

    Paintball sport hobby

    Not sure if this qualifies as a sport exactly but does anybody get into this? We are trying it for the first tier of a bachelor party. I think it will be fun!
