I have tried many
hobbies in my time, but I guess the earliest one
was reading. I have a pretty good collection of
books in English.
In the summer of
1980, I saw an odd contraption on a lake in
Myllymäki: a Mistral windsurfer. It was love
at first sight and I have been windsurfing ever since that
In February 1981,
our physics teacher (a M. Valtat) had his students
work on an assignment that involved the TI-57
programmable calculator. Again, it was love at
first sight - it started my programming hobby (or career).
My father got me
interested in photography quite early (I must have
been about 10 years old), but in 1993, I had a
chance to try a high end Kodak Digital camera. I
finally bought my own digicam in March 1997.
There's more, but
