Seb
says:

hello

Erik
says:

Hi
there,

Erik
says:

I
saw that you were trying to find a name for a Norwegian website?

Seb
says:

that’s
right

Erik
says:

Ok,
what type of website is it then?

Seb
says:

one
moment please

Erik
says:

ok,
no problem

Seb
says:

the
website is a free games portal, it’s currently available at the
temporary address
http://www.bazibokon.com

Seb
says:

good
domain names would be local translations of domains like this:

freegames

onlinegames

1001games

funnygames/coolgames/megagames,
any popular adjective

iplay

playhere

domains
containing the local most used translation of "games" are
preferred for search engine purposes

Erik
says:

Ok,
the local version of games is ‘spill’, in Norwegian.

Erik
says:

It
should contain that

Erik
says:

Like
there is a famous games-portal in Norway, (that my nephew used to
use), it’s called ‘123 spill’. That’s your competitor, I’d guess.

Erik
says:

I
think
http://www.spill.no
would have been fine.

Erik
says:

I’ll
check if that’s free

Seb
says:

very
little chance that it’s free

Erik
says:

ok,
I have to think a while, just one moment please

Seb
says:

on
http://www.eurodns.com
you can see if it’s free

Seb
says:

this
one:

Seb
says:

http://www.innter.net/en/domain/domains/n/no_domain.php

Erik
says:

Hi,
I’ve talked with a mate of mine that also was on MSN, and we think
http://www.tusenspill.no
is a good name.

Erik
says:

It
means thousand games

Erik
says:

and
the url isn’t used

Erik
says:

It’s
also reminds of the other popular portal for kids, 123 spill, and a
popular team-park in Norway, called ‘Tusenfryd’

Erik
says:

So
we think that name would work, for kids etc

Erik
says:

if
thats your target-group

Erik
says:

(Like
a competetor for 123 spill)

Seb
says:

alright,
let me get back to you in a sec

Erik
says:

ok,
no problem

Seb
says:

alright

Seb
says:

thanks
for your efforts so far

Seb
says:

I’m
taking tusenspill into consideration

Erik
says:

ok,
that’s brilliant

Erik
says:

I’ll
get back to you if I can think of any other names as well

Erik
says:

but
that’s the best name I could think of now

Erik
says:

it’s
like the fun-fair, so I think it could be a hit among the kids, who
play at 123 spill

Seb
says:

I
like it

Erik
says:

it’s
has a good sound to it ‘Tusenspill’, I think, in Norwegian

Seb
says:

I
wasn’t convinced as I generally don’t like written numbers

Erik
says:

ok,
that’s brilliant

Seb
says:

but
in this case there might be something to it

Erik
says:

just
contact me back then, when you know more about the name etc

Erik
says:

ok,
no problem

Erik
says:

you
have my e-mail adresse?

Erik
says:

do
you want my phone-number perhaps?

Erik
says:

or
I could send you my CV

Erik
says:

there
all the information should be

Erik
says:

just
one moment please

Seb
says:

well

Seb
says:

in
fact this was it for the time being

Seb
says:

the
website is there, I needed to register a domain


Waiting for Seb to accept the file "CV – Erik
Ribsskog.rtf" (7 Kb, less than 1 minute with a 28.8 modem).
Please wait for a response or
Cancel
(Alt+Q)
the file transfer.

Erik
says:

ok,
I’ll guess I’ll hear from you, later then, when you have decided

Erik
says:

thanks
for the co-working then

Seb
says:

maybe
we could think for a little longer?

Seb
says:

I
don’t like the idea of registering without considering any other
options

Seb
says:

if
you have the time

Erik
says:

yes,
that’s no problem at all

Erik
says:

yes,
I’ll keep the MSN window open there, or you can think about this for
the rest of the week

Erik
says:

that’s
no problem at all

Seb
says:

how
about some names with cool adjectives

Seb
says:

coolgames,
funnygames, etc

Seb
says:

you
can paste a list here

Seb
says:

I’ll
do the checking for availibility etc

Erik
says:

ok,
no problem

Erik
says:

Megaspill

Seb
says:

funny
that you mention that

Erik
says:

Minispill
(my mate said on MSN)

Seb
says:

I
have already registered megaspel.se a long time ago

Seb
says:

for
a swedish website

Erik
says:

ok
i see, it should work in Norwegian as well

Erik
says:

maybe
a bit old-fashioned name, but it should work

Erik
says:

since
‘Mega’ was like a big term in the 90’s

Erik
says:

like
something cool to say

Seb
says:

I
now see that registering a .no domain can be quite complicated

Erik
says:

ok

Erik
says:

it
needs to be a name to do with the website or company name/activity

Seb
says:

website

Erik
says:

so
it shouldn’t be a problem registering, if I’d guess

Seb
says:

ah
I see

Seb
says:

ok

Erik
says:

yeah,
they want to regulate the names

Seb
says:

you
need company registration in norway

Erik
says:

but
it shouldn’t be a problem in this case

Seb
says:

and
a postal address in norway

Erik
says:

ok
i see

Erik
says:

ok,
i wasn’t aware of that

Erik
says:

I
called Norid once, I could call them tomorrow and check if you really
need that

Seb
says:

Broennoeysund
number

Seb
says:

I’m
pretty sure you need one

Erik
says:

ok,
ic

Erik
says:

ok,
i’ll have a look at the website

Seb
says:

I’ll
go for a .com domain name I guess

Erik
says:

ok,
i see

Seb
says:

tusenspill.com
is available

Seb
says:

is
.com a domain that is commonly used in norway?

Seb
says:

or
is it mostly .no

Erik
says:

it’s
mostly .no, but .net and .com aren’t unusual eighter

Erik
says:

but
.no is the best I’d say

Erik
says:

somone
use .nu

Seb
says:

it
means "now" ?

Erik
says:

.no?
means norway

Erik
says:

.nu
is just almost .no

Erik
says:

it
means ‘now’ in old-fashioned Norwegian

Erik
says:

(like
Danish)

Seb
says:

and
dutch

Seb
says:

I’m
from Amsterdam

Erik
says:

ok,
I wasn’t aware of that

Erik
says:

ok,
I almost rented a room in a house in Amstelveen some years back

Erik
says:

nice
city

Seb
says:

that’s
funny

Seb
says:

I
live in the old heart om Amsterdam

Seb
says:

of*

Seb
says:

5
minutes from central station

Erik
says:

ok,
I know Rembrants plein

Seb
says:

5
minutes from here too

Erik
says:

yeah
i know the train station

Erik
says:

ok,
not bad, i lived at a hotel, close to Rembrands plein

Seb
says:

so
you checked out the clubs there

Erik
says:

can’t
remember the name exatly now

Seb
says:

when
was this?

Erik
says:

yes,
i was at a big club there

Seb
says:

escape?

Erik
says:

where
they frisked you, when you went in there

Erik
says:

back
in 2005 i guess

Seb
says:

or
studio 80

Seb
says:

alright

Seb
says:

frisking’s
not very unusual right

Erik
says:

can’t
remember exatcly, but it was on the ground-floor

Erik
says:

it
was a stylish place

Seb
says:

what
did you do here?

Erik
says:

ok

Erik
says:

i
just had some drinks, it looked like it was a cool club

Seb
says:

I
mean, you were in Amsterdam for what?

Erik
says:

i
was really studying computing in Sunderland that year, but my modules
weren’t approved by my home university in Oslo

Erik
says:

so
i went to some European cities, on my way back to Norway, before I
worked on my uncles farm in Norway, for the rest of the year

Seb
says:

sounds
nice

Erik
says:

there
were problems with the Norwegian study finance and with the Oslo
University College

Erik
says:

yeah,
I tried to settle in Amsterdam and London, but it isn’t that easy
always when you haven’t got a job or a place to live

Seb
says:

(registering
tusenspill.com a good choice?)

Seb
says:

true

Seb
says:

I
read an article once about Amsterdam looking attractive in the
beginning

Seb
says:

but
being really hard to settle down on the long term

Erik
says:

yeah,
i think tusenspill.com could be fine

Seb
says:

I
pay 4 times the rent of my neighbours

Seb
says:

unexplainable
things like that

Erik
says:

or
megaspill.com is maybe better, since .com is English

Erik
says:

It
should be tusenspill.no

Seb
says:

megaspill
is taken

Erik
says:

or
tusenspill.nu then

Erik
says:

I
have to think some more about this

Seb
says:

I
registered tusenspill.com already

Erik
says:

ok,
i guess it’s ok

Seb
says:

if
you find something way better I can still take that one

Seb
says:

it’s
only 5.99

Erik
says:

ok
i see

Erik
says:

i
can try to think of a better name

Erik
says:

and
then i can send you an e-mail, if i find something that i think is
better

Seb
says:

ok

Seb
says:

how
about payment for your work so far?

Erik
says:

so
then we can eg. take this on email etc, tomorrow etc

Erik
says:

ok

Seb
says:

a
small fee through paypal perhaps?

Erik
says:

yeah,
that would be brilliant

Seb
says:

what
do you propose?

Erik
says:

i
have a paypal account somewhere

Erik
says:

even
if i doesn’t use it that much

Erik
says:

i
dont know, what have the other translators got?

Erik
says:

like
one hours work, i guess

Erik
says:

something
like that

Seb
says:

I
paid 10 USD to the other translator

Seb
says:

half
an hour work

Erik
says:

ok,
something like that then

Erik
says:

ok

Seb
says:

what
paypal address?

Erik
says:

well,
if it’s the e-mail address you need again

Seb
says:

I
can wire it to you as w ell

Erik
says:

then
its eribsskog@gmail.com

Seb
says:

if
that’s what you prefer

Seb
says:

in
that case I need IBAN/BIC

Erik
says:

ok,
I’ll just check the paypal-accout again

Erik
says:

just
one moment please

Erik
says:

Hi,
I’ll just send you an e-mail later today, with the paypal-details

Erik
says:

couse
I’m not using paypal that often

Erik
says:

so
then you can just pay it later this week

Erik
says:

it’s
no hurry

Erik
says:

ok?

Seb
says:

the
sooner the better

Seb
says:

because
I tend to be short of memory

Erik
says:

Ok,
I’ll send an e-mail later today then

Seb
says:

alright

Erik
says:

I
dont use the paypal that often

Seb
says:

you send it to seb.moeys@gmail.com ?

Erik
says:

Seb
says:

Erik
says:

I’ll do that

Erik
says:

See
you then

Erik
says:

bye!

Erik
says:

OK,
if your still there

Erik
says:

I
had some problems with the paypal-account since i don’t use it that
much

Seb
says:

yes

Erik
says:

but
I called my bank, and got the IBAN/BIC

Erik
says:

IBAN
should be GB24RBOS16240610964827

Erik
says:

BIC
should be: RBOSGB2L

Erik
says:

then
I’ll try to sort with the Paypal-account one of the next days

and place of residence?

Erik
says:

Erik
Ribsskog

Seb
says:

you have any suggestions in norwegian?

Erik
says:

ok

Erik
says:

just
one moment please

Erik
says:

Sørens
spill/spilleside perhaps

Seb
says:

would be correct?

Erik
says:

Erik
says:

means games

Seb
says:

I
see

Seb
says:

Sanders Spill also be possible

Seb
says:

shorter

Erik
says:

Seb
says:

123spill
is popular in norway?

Erik
says:

Yes,
I remember when I studied in Sunderland

Erik
says:

then
my sister wanted to visit me there, in the Christmas holiday

Erik
says:

and
then she brought her young son, who is born in 1995, I think

Erik
says:

so
he was nine years old, or something

Erik
says:

and
he always wanted to play 123 spill

Erik
says:

so
I couldn’t use my computer there

Erik
says:

so
thats one of the reasons I got delayed with my studies there and went
to London and Amsterdam etc

Erik
says:

they
live in Oslo, so I they know what’s cool for kids

Erik
says:

she
also brought her friend, Siv, from Norway, and her son

Erik
says:

and
they stayed from before Christmas to after New Year

Erik
says:

so
I don’t know what they where thinking

Erik
says:

they
stayed for almost two weeks I think

Seb
says:

you
weren’t too pleased?

Erik
says:

so
there was always something going on

Erik
says:

no,
i had my last year project to work on

Erik
says:

at
the same time, i usually spent christmas at my sisters place

Erik
says:

(a
java project)

Erik
says:

so
I couldn’t say no, when she wanted to come

Erik
says:

but
they stayed a bit long, and couldn’t afford to live at a hotel, so I
had to speak with some mates, at the University campus, so they lived
next door, and I always had to borrow away my computer

Erik
says:

but
it was really my mistake, who said this was ok, when she asked

Erik
says:

so
that’s how this is

Erik
says:

so
I just sat in the lounge in our flat, over christmas and new year,
and spoke with the German students, who didn’t go home for Christmas

Erik
says:

so
I didn’t get to do my final year project

Erik
says:

and
when my study-loan arrived, four months late, then my studies were so
delayed, so there wasn’t much sense in continuing

Erik
says:

i
wouldn’t get my degree anyway

Erik
says:

so
that’s why I ended up in London and Amsterdam etc

Seb
says:

nothing
wrong with some adventure from time to time

Seb
says:

how
old are you?

Erik
says:

and
then I think I’ve been used as a ‘target-guy’ by the american police,
because I went on a flight from Detroit, and after that I think I was
messed with by some kind of special police force or something, since
they said I only had some old stuff in a shed in Norway, but it was
really antiques from my Danish grand-mother, and my machine-gun from
the Norwegian Home-defence, (in a City self-storag

Erik
says:

storage.

Erik
says:

But
the american airport police said, ‘some old stuff in a shed’ I think.
So I think they have been using me as a spy/target guy, after that,
in some way, at this is what I’ve overheard, here in Liverpool.

Erik
says:

And
I also have an employment-case against Bertelsmann/Arvato, that could
be connected with this.

Erik
says:

So
there have been some adventure

Erik
says:

and
now the only job-offering I’ve got is on behalf of MSN in Belfast, so
I think this could be some similar New World Order-spy stuff, from
some special police, manipulating.

Erik
says:

I’m
38

Seb
says:

that’s
pretty tough

Seb
says:

how
come of the conspiracy theory?

Erik
says:

well,
the american police sent me back to Europe, without leting me in to
the USA, for no real reason really.

Seb
says:

strange

Seb
says:

must
be frightening that they know what you ahve in your shed

Erik
says:

and
they wrote some shit in my passport

Erik
says:

no,
i haven’t got a shed

Erik
says:

it’s
a storage with the city self storage

Erik
says:

a
company in Oslo

Erik
says:

but
the officer said I had some old stuff in a shed

Erik
says:

and
really it was an old beer-mug, in silver, from the 16th century, from
my Danish grandmothers nobel familiy

Erik
says:

So
it was older than the American constitution, I think

Erik
says:

so
I tried to not be inpolite, and brag to much about it

Erik
says:

and
then he just thougt it was some old stuff in a shed

Erik
says:

and
then they thought i was a bum, i think

Erik
says:

and
have used me as a spy/target guy, i think

Seb
says:

what’s
a target guy?

Erik
says:

i
dont really know, ive just overheard it

Erik
says:

but
i think there were some mob at Bertelsmann/Microsoft

Erik
says:

that
used the nordic women there

Erik
says:

and
it could be that i was put in there, by the ones who exploited the
women

Erik
says:

its
a big case on scribd

Erik
says:

with
a lot of documentation

Erik
says:
