Male. Age changing.

I was born in the year 1954 in Stavanger , the oil capitol of Norway, moved in 1960 to Mo i Rana, a little town under the Artic Cirlce, where I went 6 years at primary school, then moved back to Stavanger in 1967 were I finished the senior school on Stavanger Cathedral School..

In 1973 I attended Agder Regional High School in Kristiansand, my subjects were public administration and economy. And so....

I first set my eyes on a computer the year Rudi Dutsche was shot in Berlin (!), learned a tiny bit programming on high school and then later on taught myself the rest about computers and how to use them.

Got married in 2014!
Have now a wonderful wife and family.

I live by the river Otra in the center of Kristiansand, in Norway.

Street map here

The city is located in the south of Norway, near Denmark and the European continent. There are about 112.000 (in 2020) inhabitants in the communicipality.

The region is good to live in; we have a fine climate and a sufficient infrastructure. That is: enough schools, hospitals and a well built transporting system.
And for the leisure time there are plenty of both outdoors and indoors possibilities near the town: sports (winter, summer--), fishing, sailing, climbing....the fantasy makes the limit.

Our home in the dark, just beside the river Otra...  

For a living I worked as a civil servant, main tasks:  information and advice, but now I am retired.

I was involved in a major introduction of IT to my service. And in that job I have learned to ask the right questions about computers and tools:
When deciding whether to buy an application it is wise to differ between
"Nice to have" and "Need to have".
