My Published Articles

I've been lucky enough to have some of my writing published in a couple of respected newsletters - namely Oracle Scene Magazine, Oracle Professional and Visual Studio Developer. Both latter journals were published by Pinnacle Publishing and subsequently were taken over by Eli Journals. Oracle Scene Magazine is published by the UK Oracle User Group.

Links to the text of the articles are shown below. Also shown is another of my articles on HTML Applications that was nearly published but for various reasons outwith my control, wasn't.  

Hope you find these useful.
