Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

No idea. I'm not fluent in Norwegian newspapers.

(jesus, trying to do too many things at the same time.)

Nordic Tribune is a Norwegian newspaper.  

That's all the info I can find in the time I have available.  I'll look, later today, and report back.

Bounced.

Seems to be a on-line only news source.  The wikipedia entry for Norwegian newspapers was recently updated, it says here, and doesn't have it.

I'm not sure if people still remember me from back in the days.

But anyway, Nordisk Tribun, or Nordic Tribune, is a Norwegian/Scandinavian internet newspaper we're building.

The direct link to the Nordisk Tribun frontpage is: http://nortrib.com/ .

We're still in a low gear mode, as we've had to spend years building our own content managements system, as we hit a technical wall with our old one on Bits of News, our English language site (still linked on the European Tribune front page, I see. Thank you, Jerome. :D ).

Hopefully we'll have NT up to full speed, Bits back up and running and a few other related projects off the ground in the weeks ahead.

congratulations on your venture.  I wish you every success.

eek!

Building a CMS from the ground-up is a royal PITA.  

Building a CMS from the ground-up while simultaneously getting the newspaper out must be a nightmare.  Have you gotten any sleep in the past couple of years?

Indeed. You have no idea how many times I've grumbled to myself, "We should have just stayed with bloody Joomla..." We'd had a couple of years where we could have focused on.. well... writing...

But in the end none of the other CMS's had the features we wanted combined with the flexibility (our Leviathan CMS also had to work as the framework for two Digg/Reddit style aggregators we're working on).

Of course we may have gone a bit overboard doing parts in a C/ASM hybrid we call Linnormr...

And yes, there have been some sleepless nights, not least from worrying if we'd EVER haul this whale to shore. :D

If you happen to need another technical consultant who won't return your emails ... I'm your guy!!!

Take care & keep a sense of humor about It All.  I've been there, tho' not quite there-there, and from experience I can tell you in ten years, or so, you'll look back and realize ...

this was the Fun Part!!!

How true. The Act of Creativity is our greatest achievement, its completion a relief, and appreciation by an audience is the reward that reinforces us.

I have always thought myself very fortunate for stumbling into a broad industry where one's efforts become concrete. But I've had many conversations with people doing other work who are similarly moved by the fact that their work has a discrete result. An accountant told me how pleased she was when the books balanced (this was before ubiquitous computers). But recently a building labourer I was giving a lift to took pride in pointing out buildings he had worked on.

Again, indeed. :D

Some people are just compulsive builders, the ones who play Civilization or Age of Empires and look at combat as a nuisance diverting focus from building the ultimate megalopolis. ;)

An old client in the Finnish MMORPG industry burnt through 500K € before going belly-up recently. Too much building of the megalopolis, and not enough on profiling and communicating with potential users ;-)

Yes I do remember you and regretted you vanished into the woodwork.
