Blues News

Blues News 2016-06The 2016-17 football season is upon us already, and I’m continuing my long association with Birmingham City’s official matchday programme by contributing to its On This Day section. This provides highlights of three games played on the date in years gone by, compiled from old newspaper reports and other material.

Windows Help & Advice, issue 125

wha125The latest issue of Future’s magazine for Windows users is on the newsstands now. I contributed the main feature – 50 best apps for Windows 10 – plus there’s an outing for my command-line feature from Maximum PC (sadly this contains the wrong body copy from a previous feature) and another showing for my guide to managing your email with PopTrayU. I also wrote – as per usual – the magazine’s Q&A column, Support Squad.

I’ve also contributed the group test – a roundup of six large-capacity hard drives – as well as a head-to-head review of two more hard drives and a half-page review of MacFamilyTree 8.

Windows Help & Advice, issue 124 – you’ll be sick of the sight of me

wha124The August issue of Windows Help & Advice is in the shops now, and I’m afraid I feature rather heavily in it. I wrote both the lead feature, 100 tips and tricks for Windows 10, as well as the secondary feature (originally published in Maximum PC in the US), Make Flawless Backups. I contributed a brand new tutorial on creating and publishing your own eBooks, as well as a guide to backing up your emails. Things are rounded off with my regular four-page Q&A column. If all of that appeals (or at least doesn’t put you off), please click here for more details and to order.
