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.

    Why are we competing for rough mornings? :(
  • Varine Varine:
    I don't want to compete for that, yall can have it.
  • Varine Varine:
    @The Helper I'm trying. Once I am more prepared to be figuring out school I'll probably ask for your advice
  • Varine Varine:
    Right now I'm just trying to get through the pandemic and figure out how I'm going to pay for it, and figure out what I need to get a job at Best Buy instead of a kitchen somewhere.
  • thewrongvine thewrongvine:
    oy just catching up on the discussion above. @Varine yeah I usually alternate between claritin & zyrtec, depending on whatever my body decides to reject at the time lol
  • thewrongvine thewrongvine:
    the more I use it the less effective it gets over time as my body accustoms to it so I try to not use it every day
  • S songbird:
    Glad to see some interest in the IS3 NUON reprint. :)
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Thank you Carl for making that happen that just might be the spark we need.
  • Varine Varine:
    I'm confused and amazed that NUON and TWV's news postings are the things still active.
  • Varine Varine:
    Or Tom Mai, not TWV
  • Varine Varine:
    Whatever happened to Cheshire? Or Firecat, whatever his real name was?
  • Varine Varine:
    I've been using both claritin and fexofenadine or something like that recently alternately and that's been kinda working, I don't feel like my face is going to explode at least. Eyes are still itchy as fuck though
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I dunno, haven't seen Firecat in a long while now.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    By the way, we have new file attachment size limits now.
  • Varine Varine:
    Are they bigger?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Yeah, new max size limit is 64 MB, to accommodate NUON-Dome emulation.
  • Varine Varine:
    I don't think I ever ran into a file size problem before. What was it before?
  • Varine Varine:
    I've had file type issues before I think, but I haven't uploaded anything since like 2010.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    alot smaller than that basically barely anything and it would have been different then 2010 because of the forum upgrade
  • Varine Varine:
    lol I forgot this used to look different
  • Varine Varine:
    It's by far the brightest webpage I regularly visit, the first thing I usually do is try to figure out dark mode.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    If you invert the colors, The Helper Forums looks amazing
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    It still has that blue theme at the top
  • Ghan Ghan:
    There's no particular hard limit to attachments. "Something reasonable" is preferred to "a size large enough to fill up the server disk"
  • B Badmanhop (Andy):
    I would be interested to.
