It´s been exactly one week since Håvard texted me at 02.00 in the morning. “67 new users in 40 minutes.” It is the rate of 870 000 per year. Something was up. Five minutes later, he texted again: “We´re cover girls on Lifehacker.com”. Even though we were thrilled, the timing couldn´t have been worse. In the morning, both Jørn, our server master, and me were to have a presentation for the newly elected Minister of Local Government and Regional Development, Liv Signe Navarsete. Being five well educated young men, she wanted our input on why we had started our business in a rural area of Norway wich also happened to be her hometown. True story!
Jørn and Håvard stayed up nearly all night to maintain the server, while I tried to sleep. The presentation miraculously went fine, and Yast was boosting all day long. A day to remember!
