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!

For a long time I’ve wanted to write an iOS app, but I’ve never been able to get it started. Lack of understanding, lack of idea, or even just a lack of time. When @LingoLiz approached me to build an app for downhamweb – the community portal for Downham Market – something took me over, I was excited about it, I found time, and it all seemed to make sense.

Other than my final year project, this will be the last University module’s coursework I’ll be writing about (I’m so close to the end). This module builds upon the previous simple client server work and teaches advanced ‘distributed computing’ techniques such as Remote Method Invocation, along with SOAP and RESTful web services.

I love Twitter. I always thought it was full of potential, and I still think it is (though it’s lost in a mass of One Direction and X Factor fans).
Firstly, let me make it clear that I’m not a perfect Twitter user, I don’t have a massive Twitter follower count, and I basically have no authority on this topic. But, I have been on Twitter since about July 2008, so I’ve seen a few trends, rises and falls, and also @StephenFry follows me.
