I used to spend much of my time on inline skates, usually at the slalom course in Central Park. See the NYC Inline Skating Guide for more info.
I'm a volunteer member (and Webmaster) of the Central Park Skate Patrol.
I'm a founding member (and former board member and former Webmaster) of the Empire Skate Club of New York.
Here are some skating-related photos.
I study fencing at the Martinez Academy of Arms, one of the few schools that teaches classical (as opposed to modern) fencing.
These days I teach classical fencing classes in West Palm Beach, FL.
I'm gathering a list of classical fencing and historical swordsmanship resources, and I administrate the Classical Fencing Mailing List, a listserv dedicated to discussing classical fencing and historical swordsmanship.
I'm also a member of the Assocation for Historical Fencing.
Other Sports and Activities
When I was in high school I used to kick butt at Chinese handball. Although I haven't played in a while, I'm still up for a game any time. I also enjoy kayaking, volleyball, Frisbee, biking, running, playing pool (including bumper pool), Ping-Pong, and Scrabble.
Recently I wrote a utility to convert Palm Datebook and To Do (Tasks) to CSV (comma-separated value) format.
I've worked on the following projects recently:

Here are some public domain and shareware programs I've written that you can download. (These are DOS programs that also run under Windows.)
Would you like your own FREE personal Web home page? Be careful, though--the Web can also be a nightmare.
Stuff I've Written
Recently I wrote a series of articles about software development, for both programmers and non-programmers.
I've posed these questions [~39k] as a supplicant to the Internet Oracle and I've given these answers [~94k] as an Oracular incarnation. And here's a list of digested Oracularities which I've asked or answered.
Until its demise, I moderated the Top Five Internet humor list, one of several Letterman-style "Top Ten" lists in Chris White's Top Five empire. I'm also a frequent contributor and Hall-of-Famer.

Stuff I've Collected
Around 1990 I collected some interesting names from an electronic telephone directory. Recently I used them to create the Funny Name Server.
More recently I collected these least common female first names from a census study.
And speaking of names, here are America's Funniest Aliases, taken from law enforcement agencies worldwide.
In the early 1980s, phone s*x companies in New York City used to hand out folded fliers that looked deceptively like a $10 or $20 bill, but which upon unfolding turned out to be nothing more than an ad for their services.
It seems every victim of a grizzly death in Jack T. Chick religious tracts yells the same thing just as their life is ending: "YAAAHH!"
I found these, uh, interesting phrases in a 1950's German-English phrase book.
Recently I helped my father transcribe my grandparents' memoirs of their lives in Germany before, during and after World Wars I and II. More recently I helped him transcribe letters my that uncle (his brother) wrote while serving in the German army during World War II. And most recently, at his request I made available the details of a court case he was involved in as a young man in East Germany. Also, here's an article about my grandfather titled Kurt Erich Moser (1895-1982): A Life "Between Worlds".
Here are some interesting quotes from video game ads I found in a copy of Next Generation magazine.
My collection of A.P. Herbert's "Misleading Cases" (originally published in Punch) are no longer available. (Apparently they're not in the public domain.)
Here are a bunch of fliers, catalogs and manuals from 1980s computer systems.
I've scanned some of the notes, handouts, assignments and other papers I wrote and/or acquired during my formative hacking years from the late 1970s (middle school) through the late 1980s (college).
In 1982 I got a Commodore 64 and a 300 baud modem and began calling BBSes in NYC. I saved a few messages and other philes from the BBSes I called regularly.
In 1976 I wrote a letter to the U.S. Army asking for more information on their ranks and uniforms. They responded by sending me a copy of Your Army 200 Years, a booklet published in 1975 on the 200th anniversary of the founding of the U.S. Army.

I also scanned some pictures my father took while in Korea in 1964.
Here are some interesting CT scan pictures.
Photos I've Taken
Here are all 7,887 black and white photos I took between 1971 and 1986.
Over the years I've taken many more photos.
One of my photos (a self-portrait) is part of the Mirror Project.
I also made about 60 photograms from the 1970s through the early 1980s.
I've posted some clips from my collection of Super-8 animated movies that I made back in the 1970s and 1980s.
