I have lost basically all fucking interest in gaming, which was one of my main hobbies.
Lately I haven't been doing much other then watch YouTube and browse 4chan.

Well anyways, what are some cool technology related hobbies? Really wish I had more stuff to do.

I was thinking of maybe ordering chink shit and making things (Like a taser for example) but I don't really have many ideas.

Nothing wrong with gaming but if that's your Only hobby, then I can see why you're burnt out on them. I still play games often. Usually for an hour or more after work. But I digress.

Depends on what you want to do OP. Want to create content? There's programming. There is also amateur photography. You can learn to edit your own content. I personally picked up networking. Made my own file server. Turned it into a print server as well. I rip and encode all my own movies and music to share across the network. Let's me play with setting up server stuff. Also going to start messing with thin clients and network OS installs.

im at the same point op

considering selling all my shit, I don't even know why I bothered with computers, I'm not smart enough to be a programmer or engineer, I just liked to game

>> No.58553996

I mean there is nothing wrong with it, if someone likes it then good for them.
My only issue with it is that I got extremely bored of it.
Really I started losing interest a couple years ago, and now it's 100% dead.

I don't think I would be good enough to program, if not I would have gone for that. Maybe creating videos would have been good but I have no idea what I would do.

I am not selling shit because I use my computer most of my spare time, just not on games.
I really want to figure out some new hobbies though, or things I could do.

I like hiking, camping, hunting, and all of that but I can't do it often if at all. So it has to be tech related.

I recommend you explore the process of creating symbol by systematically posting an image/text that makes seemingly no sense for a long time in >>>/s4s/

Soon you'll notice how this image/text that made no sense begins to garner its own sub-culture and following in the board. It's a really fun experience to have.

Here's what you should do OP, stop bothering with expensive high end computers, just use a simple modest laptop and try to keep your life as minimalistic and clean as possible. Get a good pair of headphones and start cultivating a rich taste in music, go jogging every day and start working out at the gym. Get a hobby like hiking, or anything outdoorsy.

That's because you probably treat games differently than other forms of entertainment. If you like a specific genre of movie or music you don't go watch or listen to every single release. Yet with video games people tend to see something in genre they enjoy and immediately jump on it even if it's a terrible game. If you listened to every single song in a genre you'd like you'd also be under the impression that pretty much all music is shit. You have to face the fact that consuming media is only a small part of the hobby, the majority of it is figuring out your tastes to the point that you'll be able to accurately tell if you'll enjoy something.

A fucking lot, it takes some massive reading to understand kinesiology and muscle enhancing dynamics through exercise, it is no wonder there are areas of study about this stuff. I read it all anyway because I got interested.
I suggest you simply pick tried and true bodybuilding routines that just work according to your level of fitness, available around the internet after some basic searching.
Anyway, I'm also a programmer (we're on /g/ after all), and I see most stuff in life as basic algorithms - you complete some steps and obtain success.

If you want to get involved with fitness, be it for well-being, health, good looks, social life improvement or whatever the reason, I suggest you:

- go to the gym start right away with some basic routine, lack of knowledge and instructors' help to not hurt yourself
- start reading about nutrition, it's what keeps you alive, governs your body composition and chemical balances
- keep on reading about nutrition until you understand how stuff works (caloric balance, macronutrients, micronutrients and so on)
- by now you should start eating a lot better and move on to an intermediate routine, also start reading about exercise
- you keep acquiring knowledge of how stuff works, applying it directly and getting results

It has been so many years now, I read massive amounts of nutrition and exercise related stuff, I even trained some friends of mine (one lost 40kg of fat, other gained like 10kg of muscle)...
I think it is a nice hobby, it improves your social life, well being and it doesn't even take much time AFTER you've learned your shit - I keep programming and learning new stuff. I'm here in this thread collecting cool ideas as well as you are.

Thanks for the encouragement anon, i really appreciate it.
I'm not too worried about the nutritional stuff since i've never eaten much trash food, the last time i ate fast food was like 5 years ago.
My diet is pretty much a gym diet with mostly fresh stuff at this point but the calorie intake is too much for someone as sedentary as me.

Fuck, my man, I feel you. I've been trying to fool myself into thinking I still like video games but it simply isn't there anymore, I can't pick up games anymore, I've wasted some money on games I have never played even once in the years I've owned them.

These days I'd much rather program some silly games than play any. Even watching other people playing games is fucking boring to me now. I feel like I fucked myself over though, I never cultivated many hobbies and now that I can't into video games all that is left for me is programming. I gotta get into some other shit too, if video games taught me anything it was to not make your entire life about one single thing.

Yeah, that's pretty accurate.

The internet, and 4chan especially, has made me an extremely brash and direct person. It really feels so much better to be able to just talk shit without worrying you'll cross some non-existent line and make life-long enemies with someone because they get oh so offended.

Yeah, I think you nailed it.

But this site is also such a shithole sometimes. But that's probably because we have a mix of oldfags and newfags.

I had some of the most interesting conversations in my life on 4chan, and usually with oldfags. But at the same time I've seen so much retardation that it makes me doubt there's hope for humanity.

But I guess that's just because there are so many young people nowadays on this site.

Pick a game you know with an API and learn programming by creating mods / plugins.
Currently making spigot (bukkit) plugins for Minecraft and it's the most fun programming I've ever had. Making stuff happen in a game or creating stuff that happens on events is way more interesting than outputting text to a console.
Plus the stuff you create (even the basic stuff) actually has practical use. Making mods is just a hobby and every game is different, so it's not like creating desktop applications where there's already 200 different programs created 10 years ago that do the same thing and a multi million dollar commercial application that already does the same thing 10x better.
Seems like a pretty good way to make some side income too, my friend used to be a developer for a petty big server and earn a few hundred a month.
Even if you just do freelance, there's people on fiverr etc. that are willing to pay you $20 or so for a basic plugin to their specification.
Of course, make sure you learn basic programming "properly" first so you learn the concepts and conventions.

You shouldn't be using FL Studio. It's way too overpriced for what it is + the workflow is absolutely retarded. It's hard to learn for no reason -- it doesn't have to be that way. I wouldn't recommend using it, let alone paying for it.
Reaper, Logic, Reason, Ableton and Cubase are a few better DAWs. Most of them are easier to get a hang of than FL Studio.

The problem with FL Studio is that it's too similar to Photoshop's layout; a bunch of 'mini-windows' over a background where you work. This works well for editing photos, but not so well for music.

From those which is the best and the easiest to get the hang of?
I heard that I might have to somewhat learn about the instruments.

>> No.58588131

Personally, I'd say Reaper is easy to learn because it treats MIDI and audio the same and is modifiable to the high heavens, so if you don't like ANYTHING about it, you can change it. Also the workflow is logical as all hell and it's great at not only recording and arranging, but mixing as well.
However, that's just my personal opinion. Lots of people (like Grimes) use Ableton because of how easy it is (it feels almost like a game) and I know Iglooghost uses Reason. For beginners, I'd recommend Ableton just because it's massively popular, to the point where companies are starting to manufacture MIDI controllers specifically designed with Ableton in mind. Logic is literally just GarageBand's older, more sophisticated brother, so I know Logic is super simple to use.

Cubase has a god-tier piano roll for MIDI input, but that's just about it.

I usually go through something similiar whenever I have larger amounts of free time. Gaming wasn't all that exciting for me for a while and now I pretty much stopped completely. I end up spending my days watching shit on youtube and browsing 4chin. After a few days my brain gets into this mode of constantly thinking of stupid shit and overthinking stuff resulting in me feeling more and more depressed.

College helped me a ton. I'm too busy to be depressed and I get to be with people. Now I'm waiting till the next semester starts and all the free time is making me feel pretty miserable.

Exactly my situation.

I have gotten somewhat out of shape, I have no fucking stamina or anything.

Forgot to mention like others have said, there is a very good chance you have depression. I was depressed for 2-3 years and never knew it and never saw it coming. It creeps up on you very slowly so you don't notice until one day you're setting up a noose in your bedroom.
Obviously we can't know for sure but just keep the possibility in the back of your mind.
Always make sure you have goals in life and that they are rational/obtainable. It will keep you on track for life.

Apart from getting /fit/ i suggest you also start your own garden.
I started a month ago just watching youtube vids and already got like 20 tomatoes on the way an a shitload of carrots apart from other spices, yesterday i ate my first tomato an the feeling of eating the stuff you grow yourself is amazing apart from having no pesticides and tasting ten times better than tomatoes that have been on a freezer at the supermarket for a month before going on sale.

That's the pot calling the kettle black.

Actually it's better to play games than watch TV. As an interactive media, as opposed to a passive one, your mind is encouraged to think more while playing a game, than while watching TV. Depending on the complexity of the game it may even provide an overall benefit to the development of your problem solving skills.

Thanks anon. I am also a skinny fuck, I would like to get in shape. Maybe I can start jogging and riding bike, and then branch out to other things.

No problem at all, thanks to you man.

I actually have this huge area where I could possibly start a garden, my Dad grows lettuce there sometimes, and other plants.
It would require me a bit of work to set it up (Full of weeds, and long grass currently.

What plants would be good to grow?

I actually might, towards the end of the year.

>What plants would be good to grow?
I'm growing tomatoes, carrots, spices like basil and oregano which come in handy for salads or sauces .
I planted a bunch of potatoes and sweet potatoes which i'm waiting on and in the future i'll go for some lettuce and fruits like melons and see if a can get a tangerine tree as well.
If you got a large space you should go for it, check out how to make a bed for crops with plastic or dead grass over it so weeds don't grow there and maybe get some peat and compost to mix with the earth you already got there so that stuff grows even stronger.
Some weeds like dandelions come in handy though cause they scare bugs away if they're next to you plants.
Seriously there's lots of stuff on youtube to check out, you don't even need to read a book to get started.

Thanks friend I am really interested in doing this, and can probably get some help from family members as well.

I lost interest in gaming a long time ago. I still play video games, but it's just that occasional amazing game that comes out once every 5 years or so. After years of buying into every AAA game that is announced only to be disappointed time and time again, I finally had enough.

I've taken up an interest in fucking around with different Linux distros and not only is it much more fun, but at the same time I'm educating myself, and it's a hell of a lot cheaper.

I can have hours of fun literally for free.

If it wasn't already said try gardening/growing some plants. Spices are quick and easy. Learn to cook if you don't know already. Skilled trades as a hobby around your residence. Build up your tool collection. Make a shelf or learn to fix things. Essentially learn the basics to being a man. Assuming here but it doesn't hurt to shore up your skills as man if you haven't already.

There are Youtube videos covering most things from minor car maintenance to hanging a door even. Wood and other supplies can be had for cheap usually. You can hit up construction sites like new homes and dumpster dive for scraps. Electronics you can usually find stuff on trash day if your cheap. Score a lamp or whatever isn't wanted anymore. Allows you to mess around and learn. Some folks get pallets and make stuff out of that. Do your own brakes. Change your own oil. Sharpen your own tools (mower blades etc). If you're interested in something walk up and ask a store/clerk/worker. Just ask folks.

I am in the same box as you OP.
I found a new entertainment medium in Chinese Xianxia novels and such.
Basically take Dragon Ball, substitute Goku with a ruthless and calculative MC who rapes, genocides, and conquers, add some Lord of the Rings spice upon it, up the amount of blood and death and MCs even practicing necromancy and soul domination, and you get Chinese fantasy novels.

After developing complete hate for Japanese moeshit diarrhea, and Japanese MC's who are submissive sissy faggots whose righteousness and morals have replaced all their brain cells,
reading edgy Chinese fantasy martial arts novels
is like a gigantic breather.

Natural selection.
Depression is one of those life tests, or evolutionary tests.
If you shrub it aside like a bad fart or
refocus it into anger and then channel that into positive action, then you have won. You are worthy.

If you let it stick onto you and don't just willpower it away, then you don't deserve to live and should just do the species and its genetics a favor and kill yourself. You are unworthy.
