He was from Norway, was called O[C-h]/ ystein (that is Eystein, the
first letter is an Oslash)
He had an Apple ][ compatible called West PC 800, 40 characters wide and

0ystein, with a zero. That would look like an Oslash. O and Oslash are
two very different letters, like a and e - someone called Jeff doesn't
like to spell it Jaff. He flunked English, because he was on the BBS all
night long and didn't get to school next morning.
