    Cool Get away thread

    I cook, and eat.

    I would like to explore some options and want to ask what you others do to get away from computing and maybe what you comp to, what groups or activities you participate in. It would help me to hear.

    One of the things I do to get away from the computer is to collect things like coins, 100 year old cast iron toys, cast iron banks, etc. Finding them gets me out of the house. I have to go to yard sales, estate sales, and so fourth to find them.

    Some people like model airplanes and others model cars. I think you just find something that interests you other than computers and just get involved in it.

    Use whatever OS or desktop works for you. Dual boot or use VMs if you want. Backup your computer regularly, and definitely before upgrading, partitioning, or installing an OS.

    No support requests by PM please.

    I was helping a neighbor with her estate sales this weekend. 20 years there and so much to sell! A lot of fun and hurry.

    I like to cook over a open fire and waste the night away watching the flames. Northern lights are a bonus!

    To get away from my puter, I can be found either dancing my butt off or competing in pool (billiards) tournaments. Taking trips to Lake Havasu is also something I like to do.

    I study... although that seems to invlove a laptop all too often.

    I also enjoy books, wakeboarding, snow skiing, tennis, football, and amateur motorsport.
