Personal information

My name is Jan-Ivar Bøyum. I am an active man at the age of 69 and exercising at least 2 times per week. I still play Team Handball in the veteran league. After I retired as a systems analyst (computers), I have not completely given up to work in this area. I still working on developing systems on a private basis, and may consider taking on development projects. After I retired, I also had the opportunity to update this website.
