About Olsen's Lot.
Were should I begin, I wonder. It's been such a long and strange journey from Rome to Babylon, to quote the master himself.
Olsen's Lot saw the light of day waay back in 1999 (late 1999), and has had three different faces, counting this new layout therein. It's been physically located on my private ISP's server up until just recently, when I took the final leap, bought the site a domain name of it's own.
Scripts and files have been scattered around whereever I had available space and scripting support. I'm tired of hosting scripts and files off-site, and thus, the result is a domain name and an account with more than enough space to hold the site's files and scripts.

The contents of this site should, given a little time and effort, be all that of the old site, and then some. I have a few new, exciting things cooking, but all good comes to those who wait, so, hang around for a while and behold the new world.

Now comes the boring biographic part of the about section, so everybody easily bored, turn away.
I've been a fan since the first album, titled Midnight Choir. This is also my favourite album. Perhaps not because it is Choir's best album, though I think it is in many ways, but most of all because it introduced me to this incredible band from my very own native country.
In 1998 (early 1998) I got my first computer. I'd been using a computer at school some time before I finally bought one, to have unlimited access to it, whenever I felt like surfing the web. That's basically what I did for a whole year, surf the web.
Then, after over a year of surfing and absorbing, I took it upon myself to do something about the lack of information about Midnight Choir on the world wide web. Mind you, back then, Midnight Choir was not that well known a band outside of little Norway, but still, I felt it was due time the band had some site devoted to their works.

And so it began... here we are, some 5 years later.
