Edited Saturday 7th. Of March 2015.
This page is to direct you to my various PDF files.
I have written various articles, newsletters and books which I am in the process of saving them into Portable Document Format (PDF). Most are travel, some are technical.
PDF is a cross platform format which means that people can see/read and print documents produced on various computers Operating Systems. Apple Mac, PC Windows, Linux, Unix and so on. Produced by various applications, wordprocessors and DTP applications. Cross platform. Sooo, I will put links to on this page to my PDF files. Note. To keep file sizes small I have Exported some as “Screen definition” and so some images/photos will be pixelated. If you would like to see an image in a good definition please contact me.
Hints for computer users, our travels around the world and other items.
These can be downloaded from this page's links and some from my other pages.
Most of these PDF files have saved them in “Screen Optimised” option which keeps the files size small as possible. The photos and graphics may not be the best quality but the text is readable.
I have produced a newsletter I call Hints. These are usually eight A4 page newsletters which I have printed on paper and sold to anyone who thinks they could be helpful for beginner and advanced computer users.
