I'm an embedded systems computer engineer currently living in Kongsberg (but hailing from Kristiansund), Norway. My wikilife began a little after 2 AM on 18 August 2003, when I started contributing to WKP [1] (and soon thereafter contracted a mild to intermediate (?) form of wikipediholism, which, a year and a half later, resulted in my promotion to adminship).

Being of an exceedingly leptosomatic physical build, and having had far too many hobbies and interests during my childhood and youth to care much for doing sports myself (as opposed to watching them), I have really excelled in only one sport: dodgeball. :) However, I immensely enjoy recreational back-country skiing, in particular the combination of cross-country and "powder snow skiing" (slightly downhillish, off-piste). And mountain hiking.

Edit summary codes[edit]

I use a number of abbreviations in my edit summaries. Many of the abbrevs are the standard ones, to be found in official Edit summary legend, while others are my own more or less self-devised ones (some infrequently used std abbrevs might also be listed below). Why do this? 1) for the obvious reason: it's quicker, hence no reason to drop the summary; and 2) contributors in doubt of the meanings will most probably come here to find out.

  1. ^ a b To an old DOS-geezer like me, "WP" will forever mean WordPerfect, of which version 4.2 for DOS was the pinnacle of word processing. Period. Hadn't it been for the sorry fact that the first Windows-version sucked—allegedly due to M$ initially supplying their competitors with a reduced version of the Windows API—I'd guess WP would still be the supreme market leader like it was in the DOS days.
