… Apologies for the lack of updates recently, it’s not down to a sudden fallow patch, but just a lack of time. Here’s part one of a list of what’s been published in the past couple of months.
MacFormat: my guide to optimising the performance of virtual machines in macOS was published in issue 309, and is now available to read online at TechRadar. Issue 310 has now been published, and includes my four-page guide to setting up an older Mac as a centralised server.
Linux Format: my regular series on using the command line via the Terminal has come to a temporary halt with a pair of tutorials: the first, on using environmental variables, appeared in issue 219, and the second, which looks at alternative Terminal emulators, was published in issue 220. Issue 220 also saw my four-page tutorial on programming IoT devices using Wyliodrin appear.
The Autumn 2016 issue of MacFormat is available now, and features two new tutorials on reusing an old iPhone or iPad as a security camera, and encrypting and digitally signing email using a self-signed certificate (this is a follow-up to last month’s article). I also wrote two reviews, on the Arlo Q Plus Security Camera and Parallels Desktop 12.

It’s not often I get ridiculously over-excited about stuff I write, but this is the exception. My Pi Zero-powered music box has taken pride of place in my home stereo setup, and is used on a daily basis to deliver superb sounding music to my office.

Issue 296 of the beautifully redesigned MacFormat is now with subscribers, and should be in the shops next week. It features my half-page review of the Synology RT1900ac router, and has to be one of the most brilliant redesigns I’ve ever seen.
In the meantime, you can still pick up issue 295, which featured my co-written (with Nik Rawlinson) feature, 63 great new ways to improve your Mac. I also contributed a two-page guide to adding a secondary layer of encryption to your cloud-hosted data using Viivo and a half-page review of iPulse.
Three of my contributions feature in the latest issue of Britain’s best-selling Mac magazine. I wrote six pages of the cover feature, ‘The ultimate Apple gift guide’, plus contributed a four-page group test on Time Capsule alternatives and a single-page review of Microsoft PowerPoint 2016 for Mac.
The magazine is available now in shops for £5.99, but cheaper digital editions are also available, as are subscriptions.
