Roll-out of the Headwise Project site

2011 March 25

I am removing the test page, and starting to upload the pages for the Headwise Project. As the home and “known issues” pages will say, you should not expect all the links to work during this time.

You can visit the new site here:


Test Page for the Headwise Site

2011 March 8

You can see the test page for the headwise website here:

Please note that almost none of the links work. The design is intended to be web standard compliant and accessible, which is why I am keeping it simple. If you have any constructive comments on the page design, I’d be happy to receive them to this post.



Announcing the Headwise Project Roll-out

2011 March 4

Post created: 2011 March 04th Friday.

(This post is “sticky” and will appear at the top of the posts. Scroll down to read the latest post.)

I am now going ahead with the Headwise Project roll-out. You can find a full list of the planned stages here: Headwise Project Page.

Headwise will slowly replace Porillion; this site. I will be including updated information that appears here about Persistent Visualization Deficit, Visual Snow and Migraine. I hope a community will slowly build up around the site who will assist in its maintenance. If that happens, then we can expand the coverage to include other head-health related information.

I will include a support forum, initially for Persistent Visualization Deficit. Other support may be offered upon request.

I will add more information in new posts as things progress.


Announcing the Headwise Project

2010 January 23

Following on from the polling, I can now announce what I want to do with this website. I’m calling this the “Headwise Project”.

  • I will gradually be moving this website to a new dedicated home at This follows poll results in which you said you would take the site more seriously with a dedicated address.
  • The new design for the site will be accessibility and design compliant. This follows poll results in which you said you found this site’s (old) design hard to read.
  • The new design will also be fully standardised – so you can quickly and easily find the information you are looking for.
  • The new site also allows future options for things such as support forums.
  • I am intending to expand the site’s coverage beyond migraine, persistent aura and visualisation problems. Following on from my experience I want to encourage “patient experts” to write on other head and brain illness related topics. I’m also hopeful that in time Headwise can encourage occasional help from medical experts too.

If you have any ideas on how to improve this service, I’d be very happy to hear from you. As always, you can e-mail me or comment to this post (or the sticky post).
