{old} Technical Articles

Here's a collection of articles on various computer, programming and other related topics that I've written over the years.  Some were written for publication in major technical journals. Others, for the internal newsletters of the companies for which I've worked.  The rest were written for the Internet, either here, or on newsgroups.  They are listed roughly in order of increasing technical content.  (i.e. Easiest to read first...)

My more recent writings are on my blog : Honest Illusion
