ARCHIVE   

Here's my collected literary works.  Or, to be more precise, here's a list of all the articles and columns I've written since moving to Florida.  Most, but not all, originally appeared in the online newsletter of the Tampa Bay Computer Society, Bits & Bytes.  Any new articles I write will appear in my blog; there's a link to it on my home page.

Click on a link to read the document online, or right-click to download and save for offline perusal.  Note:  Saving in this manner will not save the images embedded in the page; to get them, open the page normally with a left-click then click on  File    Save As, and choose either Web Page, Complete (*.htm) or Web Archive, single file (*.mht) as the Save format.

Please note:  This is an archive; the files aren't current, though they were when I wrote them.  Some of the links on the pages are still good, but some have probably expired.  And most of the programs I recommend on these old pages, I no longer recommend, for one reason or another.  If you're looking for a current recommendation, please check out my Download Page.

And please, cut me just a little slack:  I modified every page I had written for TBCS to more closely resemble the pages already in my Archive, all within a couple of days.  I edit my pages in Notepad, and if there's a way to automate the process, I don't know it.  So, consistency is somewhat lacking, and isn't a high priority for me any more; some pages consist of multiple boxes of text, while others are one big box, most pages have black text, but some are in dark blue.  In my defense, I put a lot more time into verifying links and fixing popup windows.

That's it so far...  Please bookmark this page, and check back often.   And please tell your friends about this page and this site.   I have this grandiose idea that I can help make personal computing easier and safer for a large number of people, but that won't happen if they don't know to come looking for help.

All of the ideas and solutions on this site are common knowledge, so no one can own them not me, nor the people I stole them from.  If you substantially copy my wording, please credit me and include a link back to this site.

Thanks.
