TH Members, what's your hobby?


User title under construction.
Also, please answer your own question :)
Playing video games, drawing, reading, hiking, I've been getting more into rock climbing but I've only gone 3 times, camping, lighting shit on fire(Im a proud pyro)

but mostly im just a dude who chills out with his friends and does whatever comes up, i've been skiing(both snow and water), snowboarding, wake boarding rollerblading , I plan to go white water rafting this summer but the plans have been slowly falling through :(
fingers are crossed though :)


Super Mod
JETPACK MAN! ... Programming it. :)

Collision detection and (especially) resolution is hard. I'm trying to make it deterministic (exactly the same every time, meaning the game is unaffected by frame rate), 'a priori' (meaning predictive collision detection -- mine goes a step further, and collision is predicted at the exact instant it occurs instead of checking the next frame), and to follow as many 'good practices' as possible (e.g. making it 'pythonic', using libraries, writing tests, writing documentation, tracking issues, etc).

I'm working on getting a 'resting state', so that you don't get insane lag whenever you're 'landing' on something. I recently ran into some issues, and now I'm beginning to write some unit tests, that I hope will pay off some time in the future.

Also: 40hrs/week at an internship, working on a to-do list Windows 7 phone app, watching anime, playing games, trying to learn japanese, etc. :p


The Case of the Mysterious Camel.
Making small games and failing to complete them..
Attempting to learn AI and failing (a few weeks later, I forget most of what I'd learned and re-learn them)..
Reminding myself to learn more math and physics and forgetting..

That's pretty much where I am now =/


Real eyes realize real lies.
I've been playing around with cards. Magic and flourishes - the fancy stuff. Then there's League of Legends, which eats up lots of time. I used to go climbing quite often, but now I do it occasionally, like once in a few weeks.
Now that I'm 18 and I've got the driver's license the bars and clubs may become the "new hobby" with my friends. Hopefully I start going climbing again. It's something where a car is a must-have.

@Sajin: Check out some Chris Sharma's videos. He's THE badass in climbing.:thup:


I keep popping up on this site from time to time.
Watching anime, studying Japanese, and I'm considering learning how to sketch.


I keep popping up on this site from time to time.
I recently decided to give sketching and drawing a go... it's going pretty well so far actually, quite enjoying it too. I recommend giving it a go :thup:
Yeah, it definitely sounds like a really interesting way to kill time, and if I get any skill with it, well, even better, right?



2D-Graphics enthusiast
I tried when i was younger, but i dont have the time for this. There are many other things much more important to me right now although i would really really like to be able to draw and sketch on a higher level of skill.

    check out this place apparently it is the best roommate site out there lol
  • Varine Varine:
    The homeless people reminded me of New York
  • Varine Varine:
    I'll check it out, my lease expires in like a few months so I need to figure something out.
  • Varine Varine:
    I tried to open a food truck in Sandpoint a few years ago but the city said no, then like two years later they passed new laws to encourage it and gave them all fucking tax breaks and shit. And at that point I didn't have enough money to go buy one so I was way too late to the game once other cities realized they could just bring their existing truck there, or sell their brick and mortar.
  • Varine Varine:
    I do like food trucks though, they're way more fun than restaurants and usually I also get some of that tip money there.
  • Varine Varine:
    Restaurants are really hard if you don't have a back up source of income to fund them sometimes, in my experience most owners either got really really lucky, had existing money that allowed them to buy an already successful one, or they have family money to fall back on for loans. It's few and far between to see very inspiring success stories where the person actually got it through hard work and perseverance. I thought about opening one lots and I always just end up not thinking it'll work. I would much rather just find someone that has that money and go work for them
  • The Helper The Helper:
    i am not talking about opening a brick and mortar I am talking about food trucks though I have seen some brick and mortar mexican places open up during covid that are doing good because there food is awesome!
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Food trucks are killing out here because Bars cannot open unless they sell food and the governor ok'd the use of a food truck in front as serving food
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Just not enough food trucks
  • The Helper The Helper:
    a buddy of mine just opened up a food truck and he is killing it but he is a great cook and has awesome food right in the middle of the pandemic too food trucks are immune to pandemic because they are take out in Texas you will always be able to get take out or delivery
  • The Helper The Helper:
    He is in the different food facebook groups in houston and posts videos of him making his food
  • The Helper The Helper:
    he is killing it
  • jonas jonas:
    @Varine with the restaurants, there surely is a lot of luck and hard work but most restaurants fail because they suck. Flair isn't right, economics not well thought through, food is mediocre or sucks, location is bad, etc. If you're thinking about opening one, make sure you're looking at the stories of those that would be playing at your level, don't let your hopes be dragged down by all the subpar restaurants out there.
  • jonas jonas:
    I'm a bit worried about the future of data science, there's an influx of incompetent people hired by incompetent managers, that can't last. But I'm sure smart data scientists will always be useful and hireable. Same as smart security people.
  • jonas jonas:
    My sister in law worked in a vegan food truck, the owners were also making a killing, added several trucks and opened two restaurants over 5 years
  • Ghan Ghan:
    The CompTIA stuff is pretty much crap unfortunately. The places that ask for those low-level certs aren't likely places you want to work. For IT you really want a degree, but in the meantime you need to figure out some way to learn the skills. Cybersecurity is really hot right now so competition is fierce.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I realized I don't have anything much to say, other than "Good luck!". Compared to other places, I'm just very lucky we didn't have a lot of surges of cases coming in.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    My daughter just got back from school at Georgetown TX, outside of Austin and said there were 100 cases in the last week but she also said nobody was wearing a mask anywhere so people mask up and stay safe!
  • thewrongvine thewrongvine:
    happy thanksgiving folks!
  • Ralle Ralle:
  • Varine Varine:
    @Gyah Yeah I figured they aren't particularly valuable, but they'll at the least act as a baseline for some entry level work somewhere.
  • Varine Varine:
    I now see how horribly I spelled @Ghan
  • Varine Varine:
    I had a rough morning
  • The Helper The Helper:
    that field is going to explode and though there is competition there is going to be room for all levels in the coming years imho.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Why are we competing for rough mornings? :(
