I couldn't have said this better myself (so I won't even try!).

Even on the Stella list alone, we've seen many people come and go, burnt out on projects and the hobby. But most of them return. Taking a break and clearing your mind is one thing, but I think a lot of people in this hobby love it too much to disappear forever (I hope). I'll also say that this hobby, as opposed to many others, actually challenges the mind and you can use what you've learned to further your "real life" career or experiences. It's, for the most part, a special group we have here.

There are always problems, but I'd like to think the good will continue to outweigh the bad.. If it stops being fun, it stops being a hobby, which is probably how Chris is feeling. But I think he'll be back. ;)

I am a strong believer in the importance of hobbies to the human condition.

For me, it's very therapeutic to provide myself a little haven where I can crawl into and be creative and have 100% control over what I'm doing while I'm there.

If it weren't 2600 programming it might be music recording or another video documentary or a computer animation project. It would be SOMETHING.
