    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Put me in. I like Brandonwh64 am into Dsm's. What a great hobby it is. One day you are billy badass, the next day you want to go hang yourself for ever fooling with the cursed thing in the first place. And as we know DSM stands for Don't start monthly.

    I have a couple really. Scuba diving, modding cars, tennis. The most dominant out of that is cars. I am a mechanic, I drive a Formula firebird, I have a 57 Cadillac sitting in the garage being restored.

    Some very interesting hobbies, some I can't say I expected. I figured a lot of us would be auto enthusiasts, esp after reading and posting over at GN :D

    As far as the game, I think everyone who said Metro was good had it right. I got a chance to DL and play my personal copy and it is very engaging. It definitely is a system killer though, my 580 is barely keeping me at 30FPS- might have to lower the details to get a more consistent framrate :eek:

    This is a great giveaway. Good one theonedub :toast:
    I already have the game and it is amazing if you have halfway decent hardware to run it with. It's VERY stressing on any and every system out there.
    Anyway, just wanted to bump up this thread and say haiiiii :D

    hobbies outside of computers???

    Im a multi-hobbyist, I like to go out on my bicycle both on and off road, I used to collect stamps but that bores me to shit.

    I used to play guitar for a fair few bands that played in local pubs and small music venues quite often. Im a multi-instrumentalist so i play drums, bass, guitar and a little piano. If i had the money id seperate my house and turn one half into a music studio and another one into a air conditioned pc gaming room.

    I like to go fishing when i can. best catch so far is a 29lb common carp but that was years ago.

    I also quite like to build models like these

    [​IMG]

    but ive put that hobby on hold as i dont exactly have my own place and i have no cabinet or shelf to put them on where they will be safe from the fate of falling to their death.
