Link-side ~ Link page

Denne sida inneholder linker til nettsteder jeg synes er gode, først og fremst på grunn av innholdet. Linkene er gruppert etter sak. Det største problemet med ei slik side er imidlertid ikke å fylle den med gode linker, men å sørge for at døde adresser blir oppdaga og fjerna raskest mulig.

This page contains links leading to websites which in my opinion are worth a visit, primarly for their content. The links are grouped according to their content. The biggest problem connected with a page like this is not filling it with good links, but discovering and removing dead url's as soon as possible.

Most of the links lead to English pages on bi- or multi-lingual sites. However, some bring you to websites written entirely in Norwegian - a fine opportunity to learn a new language!
