Ugh, missed the yesterdays deadline and only just now noticed the new one. So we will postpone our upcoming demo to be released later.

Anyway have a good Solskogen 2020!

Thanks for the great stream, and to everyone involved.
Sad it was the last SolSkogen.

so many nice releases! thanks for all the work and the entertaining stream. and making it some sort of interactive by "switching" ;)
That was awesome! Thanks. Shame I'll never be able to visit the real thing any more, but this was very enjoyable. The live coding was sick and the demos were very nice.

Bye everyone!

As someone who was at every Solskogen ever, and part of the organizing crew all but 2020: I cannot possibly summarize up all of these years in one short post. But for me, it was about getting room to grow, to always improve, to break into new frontiers whenever we could. My role on the very first web page was listed as “technical”, and that's sort of fitting; things started with power, network and compo system, and eventually grew into Wi-Fi, stream when SceneSat could come no more, and then finally the entire A/V system for the big screen.

Infrastructure is not something most people think about, but there's a certain joy in chasing that elusive smoothness; making the network “just work” and accessible everywhere (forest Wi-Fi before 4G became a thing, yo!) even in the presence of a heavily squeezed Internet connection, moving that annoying cable out of everyone's view, getting 50/60 switches without a 10-second delay, finally having a good C64 setup 15 years after a projector incompatibility resulted in a very angry subset of sceners… My philosophy on this is that if you strive to make everything a little bit better each year, it will eventually be good. The needle wants to move downwards all the time, it's your job to move it upwards. Even if people only care when things _don't_ work. (I don't go to demoparties to drink beer anyway.)

So, maybe someone younger and less jaded will start organizing demoparties in Norway now that there's an empty space to move into. If so, the best of luck! I will come and complain about how things were back in my day. But you will have that room to grow, and it's infinitely valuable. =)

Thanks for a great streaming event! I'm also very impressed by how "stuff just works" thanks to people with 10-20 years of experience!

The 90s party starter pack:
- Power outages, Microwaves, fridges
- Enormous speakers
- Megaphones
- Live-struggling to make that one Linux demo work during the compo showing
- Organizers run your demo for the first time on the big screen. Now you know it didn't work!
- Projection lost because of quirky resolutions
- Half the music gone because of connecting only one of the Amiga stereo connectors.
- Votedisks not working.. questionable vote systems (as on Rage party where I remember we were told to eat our vote sheets! Still not clear how that system worked)
- People watching porn for 3 days straight
- Carrying monitors on public transport

I'm not saying all this is bad!
