As I’m sure you’re aware by now, I have Ulcerative Colitis (a form of Inflammatory Bowel Disease). What you might not know is that I’m building an online directory of Crohn’s and Colitis related events. Continue reading I’m Building a Crohn’s & Colitis Events Directory
The iMac I use at work had a few users by the time I started using it. Since taking over as the primary user, I noticed a bunch of issues with it. Firstly QuickLook would crash when previewing anything, images, PDFs, documents. Anything at all. Secondly, I was unable to ZIP any files at all. When I tried, I just got the error “The contents list can’t be created for compressing.” Finally, no apps would auto update (where they quit and reopen themselves as a newer version).

Last Saturday I shuttled myself and Mamma Shippey on a train to the Royal Society of Medicine in London for the Crohn’s & Colitis UK: Medicine and Me National Conference. Continue reading Crohn’s & Colitis UK National Conference 2015
“How are you doing Robert, y’know, with your illness?” is a question that comes up every time I haven’t spoken to someone in a little while. Mostly I just reply “yeah, ups and downs, but fine” because I don’t have time to explain fully. Truthfully the answer is more complex and varies a lot. Continue reading How’s your health?
Something that people often ask me about, and are usually confused by my responses, is food. I aim to give some clarity to the topic in an overview of my understanding. Continue reading Food, glorious food!
It turns out that my first blog post has highlighted to me that more people didn’t know that I had ulcerative colitis, or don’t really know much about it. I just assumed you all did, but I’m happy to be wrong. I’ll try my best to explain the basics now. Continue reading Back to Basics
Most people who will read my blog will probably already know that I have Ulcerative Colitis, but I couldn’t really think of a better title for my first post about it.
The arrival of this new section on my site comes along with a WordPress upgrade, I’m using a basic theme for now but aim to use my skills to develop a nicer bespoke theme. I have a feeling that coming back to WordPress will make me enthusiastic about blogging again. The techy side of my site is all going to still be there, but this new section will have a complete focus on IBD and Ulcerative Colitis.
I’m not totally sure what I’ll end up posting about in this IBD / Ulcerative Colitis section, but I’m hoping that it will be interesting. I would love for you to get in touch with any questions or ideas you have for me!
I’ve been working with Lifestyles Festival for some time now, but the thing that sparked my involvement was discussions of developing an iPhone app. It’s been a long time coming, but the first release is here and ready for some prime time attention. Though, as details about the 2014 festival come to light – the app will be updated to reflect that.

Lifestyles Festival is an extreme sports and culture festival in Hunstanton. It took a year off last year due to lack of funding and to take some time to re-organise and re-group. I got involved by offering to build an iPhone app for the festival (coming soon…), but somehow I’ve been roped into being a central part of the organising committee.
As I haven’t posted anything on here in a loooong time, I thought I’d give a run-down of what I’ve been up to. Enjoy!
