The Norwegian Groo Page has moved

Had to change ISP a month ago, and also move my Groo Site. The new home will at the servers of
Scandinavia On-Line, with the following url:

This also means the feedback address has changed. The new E-mail address is:

April 14, 1998.
Discovered an unknown Groo issue published in Norway. (Semic's Billy #3/1991).

April 8, 1998.
Those of you who's visited my Site before might have noticed a little facelift on the Page today. I've been experimenting with different colorsettings, and think I've found one which will "light" up the pages a bit. I've used the Truetype Font " Comic Sans MS ". If you don't have this font installed, please download it, and the pages will look a lot nicer.

Unfortunately I haven't been able to test the new layout with other Web Browsers than MS Internet Explorer 4.0 yet, so if the pages appears "strange", please send me an E-mail with your browser information, and I'll check it.

Other than that, I hope you like the new look :-) Opinions, both positive and negative, are welcome.
