Whether your hobby involves electronics hacking, computers, sci-fi, or any other traditionally geektacular sphere of influence we want to hear all about it. Are you a coder, tinker, hardware hacker, or otherwise? We want to hear about that too.

Sounds off in the comments with your geeky undertakings, current projects, past claims to geek fame, and other details about what makes your hobby fit for inclusion. Check back on Friday to see our roundup of themes and comments in the What You Said follow up.

Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to.
