At the moment I am researching the possibilities of moving to Norway. How to get my license to practise medicine, how to find a place to live and apply for work. This weekend I am going to a meeting where, hopefully, my many questions will be answered.
Should you be interested in emigrating to, and settling in, Norway please try the linked sites for information.

Having read about all kinds of computer trouble, involving idiots trying to be funny, I have installed a truckload of counterhacker utilities. Aside from a Firewall, Antivirus, and Antispamprogam I have started using Ad-Aware, Spybot, Windows Defender, Calling ID, McAfee Siteadvisor. Also, I am using Firefox and have NoScript installed. So far, I have been satisfied with the result. True, they make surfing slightly more cumbersome, but knowing what is going on with my computer makes it worth the hassle.

This summer I was in Oslo before going into the mountains. Both were great. Oslo is a surprisingly familiar place for anyone who has been to Berlin, Edinburgh, Paris, or Rotterdam. The same people, same shops and more or less the same nightlife. I found several nice spots while exploring the city. The fact most Norwegians speak English is helpful. Unlike Dutch, French and German, my Norwegian is slightly rusty, as in: non-existent. Although, combining these I was often able to more or less understand these Scandinavians, especially written texts.

At the moment I am looking for something to replace my Nokia 6500 slide. For reasons I need not explain I have been thinking about the new iPhone 3GS. Then I read the following stories which may or may not change my choice.
The coming weeks I will be discussing a few topics that interest me. Not surprisingly they will be heavily biased, i.e. my views shine through, but included are references showing what exactly my opinion is based upon. Eventhough I realise opinion is opinion, certain views are more reality-based than others. Feel free to share what category mine fall into.
