Who I am

To compliment the much, much older about this site page, here are a few quick words about who I am: a dance and computing enthusiast, educated at Oslo University and London Contemporary Dance School (3-year BA in dance, followed by a year touring with EDge, the school performance group). I have so far lived in London, Lyon, Oslo and a little in Tokyo.

While studying dance and afterwards I have been working part-time for Opera Software as a customer service consultant and later on the core QA team. In QA, JavaScript issues is my special responsibility, but I'm dabbling in Java and plugin stuff too. I enjoy my computer hobby/job, meanwhile I'm still dancing daily and doing auditions.

Things that I'm excited to learn more about include languages and literature, different cultural traditions, computing, the Internet and of course classical ballet and contemporary dance. Just explore this site for more stuff about any of that :-)

This site focuses on thoughts and interests, by design. It does not often deal with my work since I have a separate blog for such purposes. Finally, even though I intended to keep my more personal thoughts private this site also contains some personal stuff well hidden in a corner.

I've run through your page while searching for address book topic for Opera, I wonder whether you are practicing Yoga, that display picture. Wow, I tried to master that even basic posture, the head stand but with no success.

Greeting from Thailand!

Hello! Just used your conversion program to convert my csv files to the proper format. One conversion, however, didn't work, and it stymies everyone. The source file is from Seamonkey (Mozilla-based). The Notes field has mailing addresses for a group of book reviewers who I supervise. The export file has cr/lf after each element of the address. When you convert it, it picks up the first element -- the reviewer's name -- and ignores the rest. It looks like it's creating a number of blank records at the end of the address book. Is there a way to get the entire address field into the proper place in Opera? Again, I'm coming from the Notes field in Seamonkey to the postaladdress field in Opera. Thanks.
