Øyvind A. Holm
Heya. I am a guy living in Bergen, Norway, but was born and raised in Hammerfest, Northern Norway. My interests are way too many to completely list here, but includes music, computing, photography, philosophy, genealogy and various sciences.

I have been programming and used computers since 1982, PC since 1985, had some years with DOS and QNX after that and have been using Linux since 1995.

I'm also a part-time musician, have played the guitar since 1981, and have played semi-professionally since around 1990. Long-time photographer, started borrowing my stepfather's SLR when I was around eight years old, and have had it as a hobby since then.

I'm a strong defender of free speech and freedom from religion. Diehard atheist and sceptic, and pretty frustrated that religion and other superstitions have such a tight grip on the world today. In my opinion, religion is the most dangerous human invention ever, and I'm sure it'll get us into a real mess sooner or later.

My home page/blog is at where I rant now and then when I'm in a good mood.

Inspired by: Bertrand Russell, Arne Næss, Jens Bjørneboe, Gandhi, Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, Matt Dillahunty, Thunderf00t, Richard Stallman, Alan Turing, Douglas Adams, Jeff Beck and David Gilmour to name a few in random order.

My OpenPGP public key is available from if you want to communicate with me and keep Big Brother outside the conversation.
