Most of my free time I spend at my computer: coding stuff, reading news and so on (though I try to avoid playing games much). Rest of the time I split between girlfriend, reading and roleplaying. Currently my only form of physical exercising is dancing, though my knees aren't co-operating fully. I used to do some karate, but that was eons ago..


Mostly I read Fantasy and Science Fiction, as well as lot of generic non-fiction (like astronomy, history, psychology, symbolism).

In fantasy section I'm avid Tolkien fan, preferring Silmarillion and Lord of the Rings over anything else; even studied little of Quenya. Other favourites include Ursula Leguin's Earthsea, Feists's Magician, Mika Waltari's historic series, Jordan's Wheel of Time.

In SciFi Ian M. Banks is definitive choice; his culture-series is splendid 'realistic' visio of future Utopia..especially with creative shipnames. I seldom buy books, but just had to get all of his. My other favourites include Card's Ender-trilogy, Asimov's Foundation, Herbert's Dune.

Computer Games

In college had plenty of extra time, which I wasted playing with Amiga. Nowadays I play just occasionally, except Worms World Party (regular apartment championship matches). Lately games like Civilization 3, Hitman 2 and Warcraft 3 have been entertaining.

Board Games

ORC has regular gaming evening, where we play lot of games like Britannia, Settler's etc. My favourite is Once Upon A Time, where players tell an old fashioned fairy tale together.


I try to follow following groups regularly (reading with Emacs/GNUS rather than Google):
