Free software...

My life as a programmer started out in the late 70th. And I built my first computer in the early 80th. In 1991-1992 my company released one of the first VBX control packages on the market for Visual Basic. The controls in the package are nowadays free and can be downloaded (with source) on this page. At the same time I developed a groupware program called Gold for Workgroup. This program is available here complete with Visual Basic source. This program was quite a success at the time but is very old now.... The latest project is a piece that fits perfectly between EDA and M.U.M.I.N. is VSCP (Very Simple Control Protocol ) a CAN-protocol for SOHO automation. Info is here.

My company eurosource also produces several successful ActiveX controls that was sold on the Internet. Today they are freely available, with source code on this link.



This is the way I look nowadays.

How i live...

This is the way I live today with my family. An old school house with 200 m2 at the ground floor for my wife's and my business and 200 m2 for my family upstairs. This is the place where I most of all would like to live also in the future but the right job will make me/us move anywhere. Another possibility is to work away from home during the weeks/periods.

I eat a lot and I like food very much but if I have the decision in my hand I rather not eat meat. I'm not a fanatic and can eat hamburgers or whatever if needed.  The thing is that I prefer to kill the things I eat myself instead of letting others do it. And if I should do this ( kill animals ) I wouldn't get a lot to eat anyway.... Whisky, cigars and beer is alright though.... Good wine is also fine.
