The most enduring passion in my life has been pyrotechnics. I was into it before electronics, before photography. It's occasionally gotten me into trouble, not to mention the occasional close call, but it's enhanced my life considerably.

In March 1990, I started a pyrotechnics mailing list. It proved popular enough that eventually the newsgroup rec.pyrotechnics was created, with the volume of the mailing list used as justification. In its early years (1990-1994), I archived rec.pyrotechnics. You can retrieve compressed tarfiles of the messages from those years here.
