Solskogen 2018 — Bleep, Bloop, Computers! (13th to 15th July)

So we're slowly trying to return back to normal… :-) Results and files are on scene.org, and all the video (compos, prizegiving, DJ set, basket compo) should be up on YouTube now. I've also published some pictures (I'm sure others will share theirs as well).

It's fantastic that so many of you want to spend your time and money to come to Solskogen. Walking around and seeing people enjoy themselves is really the greatest reward you can get as an organizer—it makes all the work worthwhile. Thanks to everyone who came, everyone who handed something in and everyone that participated in a live compo—and then a special shoutout to the people huddling around the chess board. You really gave the organizer team a run for our money this time, and I was expecting a defeat nearly the entire game until some last-minute errors in the wee morning hours that opened up a trap that caused a turnaround.

Some of you may have noticed a shadow containing a Solskogen logo on the big screen. As far as we know, this was caused by an image persistence issue (the same slide had been visible for too long at a time). It wasn't an intentional move by us (and it wasn't on the stream, which gets an exact duplicate of the image)—we strive very hard to make sure what's in your display registers is reproduced in the best possible way for the audience, and adding overlays is not part of that. We hope it wasn't too annoying, and we're certainly considering our options to make sure this doesn't happen in the future :-)

Hallvard Fark Ulsund posted an awesome video from this party, which we got permission to reshare. Hope you enjoyed the party as much as we did, and welcome back to the next Solskogen, July 12–14th, 2019!

Great party, no broken ankles this time which helped my mood.
Also was being stupid on Friday just working but I made up for it on Saturday

There is NO point to come to these things if you are just gonna spend your time in front of a computer.

Actually the move that turned it around was Qg6, which was not by you. :-) (Granted, the organizer team didn't jump on the opportunity at the first moment, and several more mistakes were made by both sides, but that's the move that introduces the problem of leaving e8 unprotected, which was the basic problem that led to the turnaround.)

Was a great time (as usual), must give my respects to the crew organizing such a nice party !!

Arrived at thursday and was allowed to put up our Amigas that evening (very nice), could feel the creative atmopshere already :)

Friday: Party kicked off with a really nice speed painting session, cograts to the winner Powersimon, but all entered came up with nice pictures ... Live shader compo also such a nice compo, cobgratz to Rohtie !! Very nice to start with the live compos btw :) Missed the live music, hope people will joinm next year on that ...

Saturdat was the compo and bbq day, too bad the firedepartment had issued a non bbq prohibition but food was served and it was tasting grrrrreat ;)

Compos was all very nice, quite a bunch of entries in oldschool music and demos so i was very happy, m y contribution was too late, but next year :))))

So to sum it up, was a great time, nice weather, great people, friendly crew .. Keep it going all involved... !!

Sesse: On the Solskogen-chess, do you have .pgn available for download anywhere?
Maybe someone who is interested in Demos and Chess is interested in looking at that game, how it turned out to be in the end. Just as a sidenote.
