Luckily, I've not heavily into any of these now. And I was only into a couple of them at all. I have my own geeky hobbies not mentioned in this article.

What Kind of a Blogger am I? 

You Are a Link Blogger!

Your blog is more about cool links than thoughtful posts.
Better to be entertaining and brief than longwinded and boring!

What kind of blogger are you?

Cleaning the Trilogy 

A look at how much work went into the restoration of the first three Star Wars films for the DVD set. Each frame had 70 megs of data, requiring the use of 600 Apple G5s and 400 TERAbytes of storage.

Too Damn Close 

The Flight Deck of an aircraft carrier is one of the most dangerous places to work in the world. People and aircraft moving in close proximity in a very small space. Here are a collection of close call videos recodred by flight deck cameras. Some have the story by the men involved.

WW II-Era Clothing 

A great source for WWII-era miltary and work clothing. Lots of leather flying jackets (USAAF, USN/USMC, British and German patterns), headgear and shirts as well as period civilian denim work clothing. Good looking stuff, but the prices! $95 for a khaki uniform shirt. Leather flying jackets $750-$1300 each.

Zeros in Flight 

Seen at an airshow in Japan. Two Mitsubishi F-1 Jet Fighters doing a flyby with a pair of restored A6M Zeros. It wasn't that long ago that you would not have seen Japanese WWII warbirds in Japan.
