Index of How-to Articles

I wrote hundreds of how-to articles for several Web sites. Most were about technology. Many can still be found online and in the book, "How to Do (Just About) Everything." While some are useful and representative of my abilities, many were constrained by the rigid and abridged formats required by clients. Published versions often suffered from grammatical or technical errors made by editors. These original (unedited) versions of how-to articles typify the best of what could be done within those formats. However, these articles are old and only a few are still relevant. Please do not consider them to be current advice.
