It's been one hell of a year so far. The BBC Radio 6 celebration of his music career is fantastic.

I woke up to feed my month old boy to Sometimes it snows in April.

Prince was one artist I wanted to see live and gutted I'll never get that chance now.

Say hi to Jamie Andrew Collins born yesterday at 0756. 8lb 12oz. Mum and baby Both doing really well. He's very content hardly a wimper.

We're still in hospital making sure he feeds properly. I think we are seeing an improvement on different milk.

A sign you're getting old is when you go to the bar you think you should be asking the one serving you for ID.

FriendUP has just entered its first public beta phase and we are seeking input from both end users and organisations.

Friend Software Labs is a software company with offices in Oslo and Stavanger, Norway. We are developing next generation web application technology for connecting users and developers to resources in a unifying way. The first product in the pipeline is called the Friend Unifying Platform.

Friend Software Labs was founded in Stavanger, Norway in March 2014 with the vision of building and distributing the Friend Unifying Platform, FriendUP. After having developed the prototype and initial documentation, the company was furthered by funding provided by a combination of government grant programs and private investors.

By the summer of 2014, the company moved its primary offices to Oslo, whilst keeping a local presence in Stavanger. The Oslo offices were established to gain access to the vibrant technology community in the capital of Norway as well as to expand the community of developers established in Stavanger to Oslo and abroad.

Today, Friend Software Labs is a fast paced, ambitious and rapidly growing young company, employing people both in Norway and abroad.

Finally, before the company went into administration, I worked in the cutting department and used Lectra CAD/CAM software digitising the paper and cardboard cut outs used to mark the fabric for cutting out. These would be entered using a large digitising tablet then be added to a program that would lay out these parts and print out on a large piece of adhesive paper or sent to the automated cutting machine. I had to make sure the components to be cut fit the fabric in the most efficient and cost effective manner using Diamino software. These layouts would be rolled out to main production but I also worked very close with research and development being part of the design team producing new products. My role would again be entering new designs into the computer and helping put together new prototypes.
