Greg Chapman's Hobbies
Over the last twenty years or so I've been involved in:
- Board Games
- I used to be active in the postal board games hobby. Recently, I
discovered that someone posted an article of mine, written 20 years ago,
on the web. "Good Game, Good Game!"seems a little tedious read,
- I learnt to sail in the mid-sixties in Chichester Harbour on the
South Coast, but most of my sailing has been done on the Norfolk Broads.
In October 2001 a share in the narrowboat Stolen Time was bought, but
that was sold a little more than a year later. At Rutland Water, on
Easter Day 2004, I bought a SeaHawk.
Its new home is now the Norfolk Broads. I've got a more
general boating biography on the Greg
- Nothing special here. I tend to build my kites from dustbin
liners and parcel tape, but I was proud of my sixteen celled tetrahedron
made of plastic drinking straws and copy paper. Copy paper is the
stuff used with carbon paper. I told you I was OLD!
- The first computer I had access to was a SHARP MZ-80A, in 1984. I
joined the Sharp User CLub and became the MZ-80A Editor for the club
magazine. I moved onto PC architecture in 1991 going on-line, through
FidoNet, soon afterwards. My first web site was devoted to "Windows
Recorder", the utility that was bundled with early versions of Windows!
- My One Man Band
- I used to play the pubs and folk clubs of Norfolk and Cambridgeshire
back in the late seventies and early eighties. I played 12 and 5
string guitars, ukelele, harmonicas, kazoo, siren, high hat, organ
pedals - but not everything at once, you understand! I won a local
talent contest and was runner up on another occasion. That led to
an appearance in the local paper.
