I was born with Cystic Fibrosis, a pervasive genetic disease, and a passion for gaming (ok, I guess the latter was learned; I blame the teacher who taught me Bridge when I was 9). Four things take up most of my life: gaming, my health, work and my other half. I'll only be posting about the first two.
Gaming: Card Games (especially CCGs, notably Rage and M:tG); Roleplaying (historically White Wolf games, but getting more varied); Board Games & any other kind of game - I am just too competitive; Game Design: I am a developer for the Rage CCG fan sets and also (try to) design other games. Lack of dedication and energy has meant I haven't got as far as I would like.
Computers: I do like learning new computer languages, but only as I need to; Similarly other software; Computer are a varied and interesting tool, not an end unto themselves.
Communication: I just love to talk, in person or over the computer, and that includes writing blogs and articles for Rage; I do rules and form-filling too.
Librarianship: I know some librarians who really love the act of cataloguing; I just have a head for order (unknown in my personal space) and for words.
Fantasy and Science Fiction: I tend to group these together, part escapism, mostly as an excuse to address problems from a different direction. I am not so keen on "hard" science fiction books, but my range of Fantasy authors is huge (helped by an adolescence raiding that part of the library).
Satire: See Fantasy and Science Fiction! Plus, you have to laugh at this world around us.
