my hobbies, photography, spent far too much on lenses and cameras though, its great just going out for a walk and capturing the wildlife etc, also airshows, ive got some great photos from the air tattoos over the last few years, im also an arsenal season ticket holder though not sure if thats really a hobby  lol
Do you ever go to Bruntingthorpe cold war jets day.  An airshow on the ground.  Nothing more spectacular than a Lighting jet on full after burn 30 feet from your lug holes.

I used to build bikes a lot, having previously worked at Sturmy Archer in Nottingham, however after a road accident a few years back and quite a nasty open arm fracture, I've lost quite a lot of grip strength in my left arm, so don't tend to do as much now.

Also have a keen interest in electronics, so bodes well with my FME love, having several real machines at my flat, perhaps a few too many if I am honest, but I blame that on going on machine hunts with riche100 from the Mecca :D

Went to my first Airshow last year at RAF Wadington which was fantastic even though the weather wasn't that brill.  Normally I like looking at WW2 stuff and been for a tour around the Battle of Britain memorial flight at RAF Connigsby and viewed the 'Just Jane' Lancaster bomber at East Kirkby a couple of times.  Elvington near York is pretty good too.

Its my brothers fault for taking me to see the Battle of Britain at the cinema when I was eight lol
Welcome to DADsFME, enjoy your stay :)

Was at Cosford yesterday... to get some pressed coins lol ;)

Big coin collector. I have 3 kew garden 50ps :)

I do collect a few of the current coins that are in circulation now but mainly gold and silver. More silver than gold mind, that shit is expensive! 

I even asked AM to send me some from the IOM nicely, and he did :D They have some wicked designs over there!

I don't have any hobbies, involving collecting or any hobbies, that I consistently do.

My spare time involves watching football, retro computing and computing general. When outside, going on holidays and spending days out with mates, involving usual ladish things.

Geddy

These arrived today, got a fair idea who from........ cheers DAD :)

hit the six

Have a few hobbies, playing football( but sadly my legs can't keep up with my brain)
so time to give it up.

photography, and golf is my others.

gold dives you mad at times, some days you play like a champ,
next day you play like a chump.

but good fun all the same, and it keeps you fit.

i played this course last year ( mar hall) in the west of scotland.

and the second one  dalmuir park.  nice little municipal woodland course.

also like planes, here is some of the blue angels a friend from america sent me over.
You are all just jealous because the voices are talking to me.

I'm into playing Train Simulator 2015, which I have got through the Steam account and a few routes and activities from there too... I also love the 'Daddy' of the train sims - Microsoft Train Simulator 2001!

I have 20 routes, activities and BIN files for that - you can't beat a bit of nostalgia - and whilst I can still play them (and install them after formatting the computers) - I will continue to do so... it keeps me sane - being the driver of a train! ;) 
My website... take a ganders!

Still spend my time developing apps/utilities in my spare time :)

Most recent ones are a Samsung smart TV app for enigma2 satellite receivers - http://www.pembo.co.uk/e2stream
Raspberry Pi/Arduino Lightwave RF Home Automation control app - http://www.pembo.co.uk/category/arduino/

Also did a few very popular wii homebrew apps back when the wii was still around, including bootmii configuration editor and tetwiis.

A demanding job and 2 young kids take up an awful lot of my time so I don't have a lot to myself anymore!
