I'm originally from Pohjanmaa. Settling in nicely in my new (about 2.5 years) environment in Tampere though. Wouldn't want to leave this place without a really compelling reason. My work is very much based on technology and IT, so it is a big part of my life. People who can't stand a couple of computers and other gizmos around the house feel free to leave ;)
I'm not a so called "hardcore" geek though, and I can get by without a computer for weeks if necessary. I'll just make up for the lost time afterwards :D. I don't like to bore (non-work) people by talking about databases, networks and programming though, unless they want to bring the subject up.
I'd like to think myself as an honest person, sometimes even to the point that it does not always benefit my well being or karma. I get by though :) I'm fairly terrible at starting conversations but I do enjoy the occasional exchange of ideas and opinions.
Rock is the way to go, something in the lines of Guns'n'Roses, CCR or Metallica. Also starting to like the blues since it's so fun to play too. SRV fan for life :)
Sci-fi, action, comedy. Though I usually prefer my action and comedy separate, barring a few exceptions.
I like thai food (I miss Vaasa), kebab and sometimes I cook my self something very experimental. Not really picky though, but pineapple in a pizza is something I won't touch.
2. Playing music is even better. I only wish I was much better at it :)
3. A car gives me a freedom of movement (buses are ok too, but slower)
4. Computers. No real surprise here.
5. Sleep. Also includes food and drink
6. Working gives me money to do everything listed above
