But if you know someone who needs a research assistant, or a program manager, or a GIS person, or a programmer, or a trumpet player... in Oslo...

This may be a long shot - but I know of a company (with main office in Borlänge) that also has an office in Oslo. They specialize in GIS solutions for the Norwegian Road Administration (in Norway that is - in Sweden they work for the Swedish counterpart...).

If you feel you may be up to it I could put in a word for you (BTW they consist of about 50% orienteers, so you´d have to put up with a lot of strange people).

...I don´t know about trumpet players though - but I think they even have a few guys playing in a band.

I thought you played accordion?

Or--alternate solution--maybe Cristina could just switch and head for Borlange and the head office instead? Sure, that would mean she would need to learn how to say "Vägverket", but I don't see why she couldn't work up to do that. She learned how to cope with cactus and the shindagger, after all. She's probably versatile enough.

Actually the transition to Swedish instead of Norwegian has recently been made much easier - Vägverket changed their name to Trafikverket so that would be a simpler task to learn to pronounce.

Nevin, true, I do play accordion, and a bunch of other instruments. But I've only ever had paid gigs as a trumpet player... unless you count the times I've been paid to stop playing the bagpipe.

Can I steal this thread and made a plug for myself. Thank you Cristina! ;) Leif, do you think the Norvegian, or Swedish office need a decent (read great) software engineer? I've been thinking and talking for some time but may be getting a whole team (a program manager and a developer) will work out great for them.

And no, I am not kidding. I like to be bossed around by girls.
