While some folks have one or two hobbies, I find myself drawn to a great many hobbies, ranging from firearms to computers, to stone-carving. I always envied the "Renaissance" men, men who became adept at a great many things. Perhaps it is my defiance to our society's increasing skill specialization, where few of us could ever be self-sufficient. Perhaps it is because I am bored. Regardless, this is the starting point for my interests.
