Name: Sverre Winge Larsson
Born : 8. February 1968
Lives : Mo i Rana, Norway
My favorite hobby is (was) probably Online gaming, where Tribes2 was a
definate #1. I was one of the guys that formed and ran 'The w00ting
Clan', using the tag '-=TWC=-'. We played competative between 2001 and
2003, before we descided that enough was enough. It is still to this day
the best only game I've ever tried. But, like any online game - it is
essential that you have anyone to play against. Tribes2 unfortunately is
dead now - competatively. Currently, the Playstation4 is my choosen
gaming platform. I still prefer FPS games, where the Call of Duty series
are the ones I've enjoyed the most.
One other hobby of mine is diving. I have a PADI divemaster certificate,
even though I recon myself not to fully qualify for this level since I
havent been attending this hobby very much lately. At least not here in
Norway. It was during such activity I first met my wife in Thailand where
I stayed for about 3 months, learning the country and fell in love with
the country and people. Of course, since I have a wife from Thailand, we
do visit it on a regular basis.
I also enjoy fishing very much. I prefer flyfishing and I just love my
Garry Loomis rod. I tie my own flies, and lately I have told myself to
attend to this a bit more than I have recently. Only problem now, as a
husband, is to make my wife understand why I want to stand there for
hours withut getting anything. In most cases, flyfishing ain't that
effective. But, then again. Thats life. If you enjoy what you do. Ain't
that most important ?
I take some picture. Just recently invested in a new Canon 7D. A camera I
simply love. Still consider myself as a true beginner, but as stated
above. As long as you love something ....
Music .. well, what can I say - I like music, but I don't listend to it
on a daily basis. I tend to fall back to these artists from some odd
reason I cannot explaind : Primus, Chemical Brothers, Black Sabbath and
Daft Punk ... confused ? So am I :)
I cannot talk about hobbies without talking about computers as well. I,
as many others my age started off with the C-64, went trough my Amiga
period before ending up with regular PC's. I prefer RHEL (Redhat
Enterprise Linux) as server operating system, and Fedora (RedHat
sponsored) is my prefered desktop system nowadays. I code some, and to
give you a picture of how nerd'y I am. Almost all my code is written in
Perl, and my favorite editor is Vim. :)
I have worked for Evry for almost 16
years, before moving on to my current employer
'Nasjonalbiblioteket' I would not be surprised
if I end my career @ this location. Really enjoy the technology challanges.
Unfortunately, the website does not live up to what really is happening behind the scenes.
How to contact me
If for some reason you want to contact me, it can be done in several ways.
IRC is maybe for some people an 'outdated' way of contacting people, but,
since I'm an old computer geek, I'm still around :-)
Nickname: 'Thalamus', IRC-Network: '#rana@EFnet, #perl, #fedora, #foreman, #puppet, #redhatnorway or
#centos@Freenode' or #ovirt@oftc.
I do also have an ICQ account, but, well - what can I say. I'm almost
never logged on. Still, this is my ICQ number '12380769'.
I've made my email addresses into picture formats, due to spam robots and
stuff. I have a second one - given by my ISP, but, I prefer that anyone
that don't know this address, instead contact me by the one above.
Please note, From the 1. October 2010, I've deleted my hotmail address
that I've used for years. Enough having just google spying on me ... *grin*
