Love electronics & gadgets! I have a plasma TV, two HDTV over-the-air tuners, two 20" LCD monitors for PC usage (and a closet full of obsolete tech gear -- anybody remember the MP3Man?).
History, especially the history of engineering, technology, and science.
home theater, online music library, encoding standards, programming
Windows XP, but Linux is the next thing to try.
Home theater: plasma screen, up-converting DVD player, two HDTV tuners, 5.1 surround sound. PC: two laptops (one portable, one luggable), one server for file/print services. Wired and wireless LAN internally, DSL to the outside world.
