So the blog has been refreshed and the first post on the shiny new simple theme is a review of the Kids Mac in a Sac by Target Dry. Do you think they are any good?
Apparently it's the law that every time you see an Auntie or Great Aunt they have  to mention how much you have grown when your a kid. It used to annoy the hell out of me when I was young, but as a...

I really wanted to put in how much Ellis liked his - just because it's the first time he got a new jacket and not a hand me down!

Wowsers. I'm famous. Along with Ifor and Ellis apparently! I recently recorded a Podcast with +Phil Sorrell  from Social Hiking. The rather impressive result is here as we take a look at what it's like to walk with kids and generally rip each other to shreds whilst out wild camping. We even take a look at some genuine outdoor stuff! Would seriously like to get peeps feedback on this so please do listen. — at Lulworth Cove, Dorset.
I was incredibly privileged to be asked by Phil from Social Hiking to take part in his second podcast recently and the fruits of our labours have just been uploaded. I'm pretty stoked with the resu...

I have an Excel spreadsheet which has a date column and a text column. I need to count up instances where the date falls between a certain range and the text = a certain value within a row. My brain is a little frazzled if anyone has any suggestions.......

Techy friends, I need your help. I would like a new phone and am currently thinking of finally jumping the iPhone ship. Couple of questions

I use Outlook 2010 as my Pc mail, calendar and contacts client. I really rate it and don't want to use Google for productivity. I don't use exchange however and either have used itunes sync or icloud to sync to my iphone, my email I use imap. My work also uses an exchange account however as well so I would like the ability to have both . Are there any decent productivity apps for android that I can use to sync outlook for non exchange and exchange data and how well does this integrate with an android phone? This aspect alone is making me think I might be better staying with an iphone.

I also use iTunes for organising my music, are there any decent apps that would enable me to sync up iTunes with an android device. Specifically I want to keep the ratings and playlist system to enable changes to,flow both ways.

The devices I am thinking about are either an s3, or HTC one

Any suggestions or thoughts gratefully appreciated!

On an Android phone and in Google space, everything you can do in Outlook Calendar can be done in Google Calendar, everything in Outlook email can be done in Gmail etc. There's an equivalent bit of Google to match every bit of Outlook, plus it's all cloud based so accessible anywhere from any device.

This weekends route - a cracker on the Isle of Purbeck. Tom's Field is totally as good a site as the guide books say.

Worth a read with the current weather!
Heat and sun are unusual hazards in our mountain areas, but as the heatwave continues to grip Britain, it's worth debunking some of the myths around exercise in hot conditions. Sustained hot weather in Britain is, let's face it, freakish. So the current spell of blistering temperatures (well, ...
