Nitro R/C is taking over at the moment. Managed to hit the only signpost for 1 square mile earlier so now my wheel is dangling off, according to the parts diagram i need a replacement 'flange post' i will try to keep a straight face when i go and order that one.  :lol:

I like films, anything really.

Computers, i'm a keen FPS gamer on the PC also a bit of a Unix geek (yawn)

Hmmm, for me it's probably my marine fish tank, Enduros and downhill mountain biking.  Just started up a new fish tank now the house is almost at an end so that;ll be yet another money pit once I start concentrating on it in earnest.  As for the enduros & downhilling I'm currently taking a break from both of them as I had to sell the bikes to get the Escort.  

Hopefully this time next year I'll get myself anther GasGas bit as for the downhilling I'll just wait to see if the scene picks up a little first as it was dieing on it's arse when i sold up...

I've just started getting more into photography. Learning shooting and editing techniques.
Riding BMX... Well, not for ages actually. A massive face plant and a lack of people to go out with are big issues. Still pop out on my 26'' jump bike to ride along the canals  :D
And I'm getting ridiculously into dubs. I went to my 3rd VW event of the year at the weekend.

Was this event at Santa Pod this weekend just gone by any chance?

My neighbours are dub fans, there seems to be a show on every other day!

Yeah my neighbours went.

Apparently there was a human powered something down the drag strip? They ran down there dressed as Mario + Luigi.

He has some funny ideas.

He has a nice Audi TT Quattro, but he left that at home for some reason.
