Hi there!

Welcome to my personal site, where I jot down anything of interest to me. Have a look around, but don’t expect anything too serious 😉

My 3D designs, shared

Over the last year or so I’ve enjoyed playing with and learning to use my 3D printer, but even more so learning to make my own stuff using…


I love the details closeups photos give when taken by those who actually know what they are doing. I sometimes give it a try myself, and although I…

My Reef inhabitants

My small reef setup has slowly started growing as hoped for, and during the last few months, I’ve been adding flora and fauna to it. Here are some…

3D prints for Birds

Birds are beautiful and deserve food and shelter. Here are some examples of 3D prints for this I found online and printed out. Nice, aren’t they?

Beautiful Norway (again)

As the number of posts about Norway’s nature on my site might suggest, I’m absolutely wild about this country. So to that end, here are a few more…

Tackle box (3D project)

This is a simple, thin tackle box inlay for Altoids tin. I find these little boxes to be the perfect size for all kinds of storage. They are…

Star Citizen

I’ve been a StarCitizen backer since 2015, although I knew about it and followed it from the start. It has been an absolute joy to follow the project,…

Into The Breach

Into the Breach is one of my all-time strategy games. It works both on PC and mobile and is an excellent alternative when you have a few minutes…

Onyx Boox stand (3D project)

I own an Onyx Boox Air notebook, which I am very happy with. I also have a Samsung Android keyboard, and therefore I made a stand for /…

I should be so lucky…

Using Midjourney, I asked it to make a variant of me at 60 (which is still a few years off). The result made me think “Yeah, I should…

Hand Reel fishing kit (3D print project)

A lightweight and compact fishing reel, aka. Hobo (or hand) Reel

A proud moment

After two years of hard work by my team and coworkers, I was very proud to announce and release our company’s brand new house/accommodation booking website, built atop…

Skimmer (3D print project)

I have a somewhat unusually-sized reef aquarium that is pretty high (and square) instead of the more traditional rectangular style. As such, I’ve had difficulties finding a good…

Diced (3D print project)

After testing and tweaking my homemade game (see this) for more than six years, it has finally come so far that I feel confident I might ‘be on…

Spain moments 2022

These photos are tests of my S22Ultra’s camera capabilities (portrait, HDR, color reproduction, sharpness, and zoom), and a shot – pun intended – at taking slightly different vacation…

Fall 2022

I know I’m repeating myself here, but Norway’s beauty is undeniable. Here are a few shots from this fall.


DALL·E 2 is an AI system that can create realistic images and art from a description in natural language. So I had to try: “Dall-e, my name is…

Rollecoaster Tycoon

One of my all-time favorites, and a game I still come back to visit from time to time is Rollercoaster Tycoon.

A small mountain hike

Some images from a small mountain hike I did with a friend of mine last year. By the way, did I mention that Norway is beautiful?


Just a small assortment of odd closeups I’ve taken of creepie-crawlies over the years. I use it to gauge the quality of macro lenses on my mobile phones.

A touch of Spain

We have visited southern Spain almost every summer for the last 20 years, and though it is impossible to convey the sensations of being there, here are some…

Kids room

Some images from when we refurbished one of the kid’s rooms.

Small media room

We divide our mostly unused basement into two rooms and turned one of them into a small media room.

Spain vignetted

This is a set of photos from a few years back when I played around with color degradation and vignetting filters. Looking at these images now I find…


Or NTNU Trondheim…? 🙂

3D Project | Tiny case mods

I recently bought a new Jabra In-ear headset. These are charged in a small-ish case, and although nice, the product team can’t possibly have tested their final product.

Lego dioramas

For some odd reason, I find taking close-ups of lego build fun and satisfying. When my kids make something, I try to frame a shot in such a…

Funny prank

Print out face of a monster, or Gollum, or something else. Cut out and to fit friends’ car mirror. Wait.

Trekking pole mod (3D print project)

Last summer I went on a hiking trip with a friend, sporting my newly-acquired ultra-light pyramid tent.

Lensa your ego

A while back it suddenly became all the rage to use an app called Lensa to make AI-generated profile pictures of oneself. After uploading a few pictures, the…

Low-noise light Mod

One of the downsides of a reef aquarium can be noise levels coming from sumps, pumps, and even the light fixture.


These are old shots, taken from quite a distance with a Nikon D90, but I still love the expressions depicted here.

The Witcher 3

Aaah. The Witcher. A game so well made it leaves the Netflix series unwatchable, and its Blood & Wine DLC is a full game in its own right.

Excursion to Hegra

During the summer, we traditionally try to visit one or two for us completely unknown places each weekend, either to learn a bit of history or visit beautiful…


Snow, free time, and watching Frozen one too many times can lead to things like this. Nuff’ said 🙂

Excursion to Innerdalen

During the summer, we traditionally try to visit one or two for us completely unknown places each weekend, either to learn a bit of history or visit beautiful…


Our weird cat sleeps in mysterious ways. And every blog must have at least one cat post. Here’s mine.


I have a weak spot in my heart for historical, Norwegian buildings. Here are some photos from Røisheim hotel, one of my favorite stayovers.

Free range eggs

I know (and have been told repeatedly) that I have a very strange sense of humor, one being finding dumb text or descriptions very funny. Even funnier is…

Halloween one-trick-pony

Being bald, there is only one sure-fire and simple ‘costume’ for me to use. Every. Year.

Excursion to Austrått

During the summer, we traditionally try to visit one or two for us completely unknown places each weekend, either to learn a bit of history or visit beautiful…

Student-services app, v1

I’ve been lucky enough to manage an agile project working on providing new or updated student services in my hometown. Working from a huge backlog, here are some…

Wild Norway

What can I say? I love Norway 🙂 These are very old photos, but the mood remains.

Garden wildlife camera

Almost every night a small herd of deer visits our garden, and I wanted to capture it. So I made a small enclosed video camera setup out of…

Western Norway

For me, the fjords and mountains of western Norway represent some of the most breathtaking beauty nature has to offer – as long as the weather is nice,…


Some time ago I got fed up with all the chargers and cables laying around the house, so I made this charger ‘wall’ and urged the family to…

DIY Skimmer

To keep costs down – and because I love DIY projects – I used an old Jewel filter to house my homemade skimmer. I used the pump and…

Reef 2.0 startup

After a 3-year break, I decided to start up my Reef hobby again. I needed a diversion from my daily routine, and reef keeping is challenging enough to…

A nice, cheap little tent

On a whim – and because I just wanted to test out the claims of the tent maker – I bought this one-person ultra-light tent from a Chinese…

A new terrace

We have a very old house, and the original terrace was sagging heavily on one side. So much so that it put a strain on the house’s fundament.

The 1000l. Reef

Here are some plans and photos from one of my earlier reef setups, where I knocked a hole between two rooms and put a 1000ltr. aquarium in.

Clownfish and their anemone

The interaction between clownfish and their chosen anemone is fascinating to see.

Brain teasers (3D prints)

Puzzles are fun, and after finding and 3D printing out a few of them, they have been taking time away from my kids (and workmates’) screen time 🙂

The Wild Hunt

This series of photos was taken almost by accident when I noticed our cat chasing down a mouse.

DIY Sleeping couch

I had a bunch of leftover materials AND a mattress. So naturally, I had to try making my own sleeping couch. I was pretty pleased with the result…

The Tarp

I got my hands on a large 3x4m. tarp, and checked YouTube for suggestions on setups. This was my first one, setting it up as a small, stable…


Many moons ago and in what must have been another life, I both played with, had several certifications in Photoshop – including two AdobeAce – and gave lessons…

Fishing as a hobby

I love to fish. Wait, that might not be completely true. I love the experience of exploring the insane beauty that is the Norwegian outback, and hoping for…

DIY Cooler

A hot day, and stuff laying around prompted med to try my hand at making a small and mobile cooler. As a bonus, it actually worked 🙂


We had some unused space between two bedrooms, and by closing it up with a wall, and then opening this new room from the master bedroom, we created…


Many games for kids these days seems to fall under the ‘get an electrical jolt‘, ‘slap my face‘, ‘force your mouth wide open with a dental-torture apparatus and…
