You have all done a formidable job and I can´t thank you enough: Olav (putting the site together and putting up with my severe lack of knowledge of all things technical), Noah (all creative ideas made doable) and Espen (the man behind all the great drawings and the new logo).

We have been working on the site for quite a long time and I´m thrilled to get the ball rolling. I hope you enjoy what you see and please send your comments – pretty much whatever they might be. And as a wise man once said “I believe in everything; nothing is sacred. I believe in nothing; everything is sacred. Ha Ha Ho Ho Hee Hee.”
