Knøttet

A friend just told me she had read my blog (thanks Torunn). And so I was suddenly reminded that, yes, I have a blog. Let's do an update!

The more practical sides of life first. Kari and I have moved into our new apartment! It's pretty new, from 1999, so we didn't really have all that much to fix. But then again it was so new it was a bit boring, so we did a lot anyway. We've painted walls, bought tons of furniture (gold card members at Ikea), and I've installed at least a kilometer of all kinds of cable (ethernet, loudspeakers, coax, phone etc etc), all hidden inside the walls of course. Now we're happy in our new home. It's nice and cozy and just what we wished for. Please come visit, we'll show you around.

On the more sentimental side, this is a very sad time. Yesterday our 12 year old cat, Knøttet (Little One), got up from the couch where it was sleeping, walked a couple of steps, and then fell over and died. Probably a heart attack or something. We did our best to get it breathing again, but it was all over very fast. I cannot express how sad this is for me. I feel I just lost this great little friend that was always there when we were home. A friend that loved to play with us, talk to us (he was very talkative for a cat), or just lie cuddled next to us wherever we were. Now the apartment seems so empty without him. He also meant a whole lot to my parents and my sister. I hope he's up in cat heaven, playing around in the long green grass and hunting for mice.

I'm going on a trip to Uganda next month. I'll try to give and update after that.

One can secure cheap electricity for a period, whether you are on a promotional, and you can save more if you actively supplied, and switching power supplier when your campaign is running out on time. This can be done if there is a period that goes beyond the campaign's effect glaciations at https://www.strømtest.no.

Flash homepage

This used to be my web-site. Flash from bottom to top. Back then I thought it looked hot. Now it just looks silly.

Flash travels

This is the first page I created using Macromedia Flash. An interactive photogallery with maps and all.

Atacama

When I got tired of manually editing HTML every time I wanted to put out a new picture gallery, I finally wrote my own generator, in Java.

CasaCam

My dream as a kid was to control things in the real world using a computer. Now I use two small servo-motors to tilt and pan my web-cam.

Create-a-tree

Sitting in the garden in Chile during springtime inspired me think about how trees grow and sprout new leaves and branches.

Hobbyco

This is the web site for Kari's father's company. It's quite simple, but web statistics show that people are actually using it quite a lot.

Kari psykolog

Kari was sure she would spend months looking for a job as a psychologist in Norway. She decided she needed to promote herself using a home page.
