Hello Everybody!

It's been a very long time since I visited. Four years I believe. A lot of things have happened since I was here last, disappearing was not something that that I was planning on but life ran away a bit as it sometimes does. I first got here at the end of high-school when I was doing my "Thesis/Project" (http://diyaudioprojects.com/Forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1691 ). The project was a success and I got an OK grade, however, unfortunately the amp itself was a bit of a failure and never got finished, it is now collecting dust in one of our barns. Then I was active her for a while after graduation but then my life took a bit of a twist...

Suddenly I was sitting on a KLM 737 with Hangzhuo, Zhejiang, China as destination, I had a suitcase with some clothes and a backpack with a laptop but that was about it. I was going to study Chinese for six months at Zhejiang University, which I did. I also met a lovely girl from Japan whom I now live with here in Sweden.

After my stay in China I went straight to university, I started in Marine Engineering at Kalmar Maritime Academy and after a short 4 months I was on board M/S Tor Freesia (Now M/S Freesia Seaways) of DFDS for about a month. Then it was back to school for another semester and then I found myself on M/V Atlantic Concert of ACL, there I spent almost three months straight, and I got to visit USA and Canada for the first time in my life. Another interesting thing was the 20MW MAN B&W 6L90 engine. 6 is for 6 cylinder, L is for 2m stroke and 90 is for 90cm bore. It is the biggest single piece of engineering I've seen in my life. when you think about it, there are now marine engines delivering over 80MW. Anyway enough about engines. Now I'm just finishing my second year at KMA and in October I'll be heading out on M/T Primula of Wäderö Tank AB, a small Chem/Product tanker.

I hope to show up a bit more on the forum once again, It felt quite nostalgic reading through my old stuff and it's exciting to see all the new things. I don't know if I will have time for any projects of my own but maybe something small later in summer.

Cheers to everyone!

PS. If you bothered to read through all this then sorry about the rant and thanks for reading. :D DS.
