Under the act of this mortal clicking "Add Knut Remi "DrLaunch" Løvli as a friend" I call upon thy will, fifteen judges of eternal life, to receive confirmation of this mortal transferring ownership of their immortal soul to me, the owner of this page. Their name or moniker appearing in my friend request page shall count as their binding spiritual signature. Their contract can only be broken by their name disappearing from my friend request page. If the cause is me accepting their request, it will be because we are already on speaking terms. If the cause is me declining their friend request, it will be because I wish to release their soul from the contract. Any other cause will also void the contract, such as the friend request page ceasing to exist.
(If you add me as a friend to escape eternal damnation, don't bother. If that's the judgement you deserve, I will also arrange for you to reveive it. You're going to have to redeem your self the hard way. 0:D )
I'm a hobby web designer and crave all things tech. I love blogging, helping and being creative. I'm proud to be a member of My Opera Community.
I have a tech related blog and I co-founded the Techies group with Anzah.
I make new custom blog designs every now and then. I've given them away to the community in the DrLaunch' Blog Designs group. I'm also working together with Southern Cross and Class10a1 to create a main source for custom blog designs.
I'm concerned about our environment. And I'm curious about how to protect our environment. I'm the founder of the Save our Planet group, which is a great place to learn about green living. But I'm not only serious, so I founded the lolcats group, where I can laugh when fellow community members post new pictures of cats with funny captions.
I like helping people get the most out of their Opera browser as well. I'm even developing tools to make StumbleUpon safer, easier and faster to use in Opera together with the My Opera StumbleUpon Team. I also like hanging out on IRC, eg. in the Opera support chat room.
I also like reading Nintendo news and hanging out with my friends over at N+. I'm one of the first 500 members, making me a . With over 1,800 Members, N+ is a fast-growing and user-generated worldwide Nintendo Community powered by MyOpera.
I also like writing. And I'm working on a series called "Dr. Launch Spacelog", where a engineer and scientist from Qeba-9 is making exploration of space possible for his people. Although the series is on a hiatus due to studies.

As you can see, I've been quite busy in the community. But that's because of all the great people here, inspiring me to give something back.

Why I choose the Opera browser
When I started my IT education I was an Internet Explorer user. But Mozilla Firefox was turning some heads so I switched, and enjoyed it. A classmate showed me Opera, but there was something about the ads that made me loose interest.
When I started working, I discovered Opera Mini. It was ground breaking for the J2ME platform. And a much better way to get the web on a mobile phone. But it didn't run perfectly on my Siemens C65. So I turned to Opera Community to get help. At the time I was still using Firefox :-O .
I gained more interest for IT news and Opera's 10th anniversary gathered massive media attention in Norway. But I missed the ad-free limited download. But then, Opera turned free. And after some time, I installed it on my computer. I learned what set Opera apart from its competitors. What made it better. I started exploring the functions and I became totally in love with the browser.
In my opinion, Opera is best. Opera is more advanced, faster, more secure and more customizable than any other browser. I've tried my best to switch to other browsers but can't. Try Opera today and maybe you'll find the same love.
