Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

I have Skandiabanken accounts both in Norway and Sweden. While Skandiabanken Norway have been very friendly towards Opera and done quite a lot to get it working properly (although it has progressed slowly at times), in Sweden they have been outright Opera-hostile; for a long time one received an error message stating that Opera did not support certificates, which is an obvious lie. I have had to use Mozilla to download the certificate, export it in PKCS 12 format, and then import it into Opera (MSIE refuses to export).

After changing the certificate download procedure (in both Norway and Sweden) to use one time password (thanks) that are sent out as text messages over SMS, they have finally removed that stupid barrier. Now retrieving a certificate, logging in and doing my banking works perfectly fine in Opera, which is something to be thankful for! The only minor shortcoming is that I have to identify my as Mozilla 5 for it to work properly, but I can live with that.
