When not draining the lab's midnight oil reserves, John spends most of his  free time drinking coffee, reading, rock climbing, biking, boxing, messing around with his 6" maksutov cassegrain scope, mucking around his website, experimenting with new recipes and modifying his overly customized PC rig.
