Cisco Geekworking or sleeping in, Inglaterra
I am 31, male, married with 2 girls under 4 who are my world and take up a lot of my time :)) So much so I only manage to get to a few of my beloved Arsenal's home games per season now.....boooo!
I love the older PC strategy games, at the moment I play Rome TotalWar, BF2 and IL-2 Sturmovik when I get a few spare minutes. I played live and online poker for a long time, made money yes, but found it unfulfilling and generally quite a soulless way to spend time. It's not so bad when you're winning but once my kids were born I lost some of the edge you need to win big and so decided to quit while I was ahead.

My aim when I joined was to get to 2000 within a year and I managed this (with help from some timeouts!) in October after 10 months. Since then I haven't been so motivated and have made some daft mistakes, as well as being very short of free time. Apologies to my opponents who want to play fast but I just haven't been able to spend the time on chess recently.
