    Toastmasters (an organisation for learning how to speak in public). I've been in it for several years now and get a buzz out of helping other people with speeches etc. I get to meet all sorts of people I wouldn't have met otherwise, including some who say, "I've just installed Ubuntu and..."

    (oh, wait... that's not afkb... )
    Please, people, remember to BACKUP before you install that new system. Same if you're upgrading.

    My dad was in Toastmasters! That was like 50 years ago! It was a great organization then. Glad to know people are still enjoying it.

    I like doing landscape, buildings, street photography. Also covert pet photography: I have a big, bouncy American bulldog (another pastime) that is my most frequent model; but she hates being photographed, if she sees me so much as point a camera in her direction she glares and growls, so it is a real challenge to get decent shots of her being lively and happy. Sometimes I just hold my smallest camera and take pics without looking at the display. A bit hit-and-miss, produces complete garbage most of the time. It'd be a real money burner if I did this with a film camera so let's say hooray for digital. Hooray!

    Incidentally there's still a fair number of photographers using film. I (very rarely) use a film camera, and the photo lab I use will develop the film then scan the negatives/slides and send me a CD instead of prints. Very good quality scans, and I can print the good ones using a computer printer or I can send the negative to the lab to get a nice large print done. So film photography is still alive and kicking. Just not kicking as hard as digital photography!

    Photography is my passion. Been at it for well over 45+ years.

    I still mainly use film gear (see my avatar) which includes Nikon, Leica, and Minolta. I do use digital when needed..

    I also work in the photography business..
