My Story

Website Updates

TelcontarI was born in the city of Bergen in 1980, but soon moved to Harstad with my parents where I grew up. I have since completed general highschool, one year of military service in Bergen, and several years of studies.
I am know a Bachelor of Engineering in IT from the Sør-Trøndelag University College, with a year of study abroad at QUT in Australia, and a Master of Science degree in Telematics from the Norwegian University of Technology and Science.

My interests of choice are partying, snowboarding, scuba-diving, internet-stuff, reading books and comics, watching movies, and travelling the world!
I really want to put up a large world map on my wall, pinning out the places I've been. Hopefully I'll get around to it someday. It will be quite a lot of pins as my travels so far have brought me to most of western Europe, both coasts of the United States, some parts of northern Africa and most recently Singapore, New Zealand and Australia! Next on my list is seeing more of South-East Asia, as well as Antartica and South-America. Hope it'll be soon :)
I consider myself to be a kind and helpful person, but I'm sure I got my flaws just like everybody else. I'm currently living with a Norwegian girl, Benedicte, at Cathedral Place in Fortitude Valley, but I spend lots of time at Toowong where my girlfriend Carina lives!

My motto is: Don't worry, in the end everything tends to turn out fine.

The Nick
When playing online games or chatting I prefer the nick Telcontar.
It is the sindarin elvish name of Arargorn, son of Arathorn, aka Elessar, heir to the throne of Gondor. It is taken from the fictional works of J.R.R Tolkien, of which best known is the Lord of the Rings trilogy. I chose it in 1995 when I first got internetconnectivity at home and IRC created the need for a permanent nickname, and I was as far as I know the first person to make use of this nickname online.

  • Svein-Magnus, you're personality type is a Shark!
    Your personality is actually determined by two personality sub-types — your primary, or dominant sub-type, and your secondary sub-type. You are a Shark which means you are a Seeker / Success. Your primary sub-type is defined by "Seeker" characteristics and your secondary sub-type is defined by "Success" characteristics.
    You've got a robust love of life and a killer instinct. Your mantra: Work hard, play hard. You own a garage-full of sports gear. You talk on your cell phone in restaurants, and laugh too loud. Wherever you go, everyone thinks you're important. You own stock in everything. You wear Prada to the gym and drink designer water. Dull parties make you weep. You hate rules, and don't plan on getting old.

    I will be worth a million US Dollars before I reach the age of 31.
    I will die on March 18, 2041 from a fatal illness. Most likely a heart attack.

    Just a quick question. I've recently come back from working in Stockholm for two years. I became quite fond of Scandinavian bread, particularly grovlimpa. My question is, if you don't mind me asking, have you found any bread shops in Brissy which sell similar styles of bread, i.e. relatively sweet bread, which is also relatively heavy? Otherwise, known any recipes translated into English?

    Loved Sweden, loved Scandinavia, hello to all the Scandinavians living in Brissy.

    By the way, "Telcontar" is a Quenya word, not Sindarin =)
