Řyhus dithering No.7.


I am a physicist, hacker, and a hangglider pilot.

I currently work as a cryptographer at GenKey. My previous work was as the Unix system administrator at UPC Norway.

    My and my monitors
    This is me, and my 6 monitor screen, which works in Linux and WindowsMe.

    I am flying
    This is also me, flying a hangglider, which is dangerous, difficult, but most of all, a lot of bother, since 70% of trips are flightless, and 80% of flights are just glides to the ground, and there are a lot of elitist pressure from the organization. But the few hours high in the air are fantastic, but not enough to make up for all the bother, if it wasn't for the fact that I like going on tours with my car and view beautiful landscapes.

    I used to read Scientific American, but now prefer a real scientific magazine, Science. I can recommend Discover for the more popularized stuff.

    Yes, that seems more likely."
