This article archive is a repository for all the subjects that I have researched. Each article incorporates my research and findings on a particular subject, whether a computer security related topic or diagnosing a particular problem, or just writing about something that interests me.
They say that the best way to learn and remember something is to try and explain what you have learned to someone else. So that was one of my reasons for writing down what I was learning in an easy to follow bite-size article format and then putting them online.
When I started writing the articles I only owned one web site, a comic strip about a bunch of friends working in IT. As production of the comic strip waned, writing of the articles continued.
I myself use this article repository for reference purposes, often returning to these pages to remind myself about something I may of forgotten months or years later, or to update my notes with newly acquired information.
So however you found this web site, I hope you found what you were looking for and found it helpful. If you wish to contact me regarding anything on this website, whether you wish to point out something that needs correcting or adding within an article, or even if you have a suggestion for a new article; then please feel free to drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
All the best, Dave
