Misc. links

Below just some references and links brought over from the old site. I’ll probably make some changes to the page here over the coming weeks or months.

Personal, family & relations

  • My Business site MeynConsult, there’s also a blog more geared towards IT/Tech and web related stuff. A collection of web projects you may find on this page.
  • Tracee Lewis Meyn’s site,  The Mrs. who’s a (exceptional, extremely good.. ok I am biased but check out for yourself) Vocalist, Singer, Songwriter and Vocal instructor who also does webdesign. There’s lots of information and also downloadable music here.
  • Traces Gospel Choir: many years back, around ten years now actually, the wife started a choir. She needed something associated with home (she’s from California). Today Traces is an acknowledged, much used choir that can be booked for various arrangements. More information on their page (which btw. i designed).
  • T/HeARTofla: a great website run by a family member! Well worth a visit, it’s  exploring the core of LA’s arts, culture and entertainment (and other LA centric things).
  • Home of 3-11 Porter: One of the Mrs’s bands. A well kept secret in Norway that have made it pretty big elsewhere in the world. On their site you can find information about the band and link to music and videos.
  • 3-11 Porter on Youtube, they’ve made some hits and you’ll find a few of them here.
  • My “Mausoleum” at at SoundCLoud. Older home recordings from the cassette tape era. Basically the same stuff you find on this page.
  • Knut’s photographer page at National Geographic. Taking pictures have been a hobby of mine since the mid 70s. 
  • My linkedIn Profile, where you may the more professional history. No need to duplicate it here.

  • Drupal, one of the best Open Source CMS solutions around, especially if you want to build bigger, more complex stuff.
  • Ubercart, eCommerce module for Drupal, pretty good for smaller webshop projects.
  • WordPress, the most widespread and used Open Source Content Management (CMS) system. Some favors it as it’s less nerdy than Drupal, well at least out of the box.
  • Joomla, another of the more widespread and used Open Source Content Management (CMS) systems. Better than it’s reputation (from back in the early 2000) and used by millions of websites worldwide. Last versions to date (3.x) is a lot better than its predecessors.
  • Wiki page for odds and ends, if the above links didn’t satisfy your needs then this page will. It features perhaps the most comprehensive list of open source CMS systems you’ll ever find. Knock yourself out :).
