I'm.. me. Student/software developer from Norway, I spend all my time in front of a computer, either developing fairly boring applications or playing games. Other than that I watch a whole lot of football(soccer to our friends over the sea), my team in England is Arsenal, in Norway it's Brann.

Regarding gaming: I used to play all sorts of games, strategy games like C&C, adventure games like Monkey Island, Larry and Space Quest, sports games, simulators and so on, but today I only play RPGs and RTS games with RPG elements(SpellForce, Warcraft 3, etc). My all time favourite games are probably Baldur's Gate 2 and Gothic 1, although there are many that should be mentioned, from Heroes of Might & Magic 1 and Magic & Magic 6, to modern games like KotOR1-2.

I also do a fair bit of reading, but again I've become more boring over time. I used to read a lot of Jules Verne, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and so on, but lately I've only read fantasy books and series. My favourite is probably The Wheel of Time - a lot of people critisize it for it's incredibly level of detail, but I enjoy it. The few annoyances I have with the series are the same as always - why do they not use teleport as means of communication more? Why doesn't Gandalf use his pretty birds to drag Frodo into Mt. Doom in an hour? Why does Sherlock Holmes always wait for that dimwit Mr. Watson to walk about asking ridicilous questions before revealing who the killer is? You get the point..

Anything else? Just ask.
