Nearly all I have ever written as part of my working life is as grey as it gets. Most is difficult to find anywhere online, if at all. For some reports etc. that is probably with good reason. Be warned.

Below a list of stuff that I have written or co-authored, uploaded to this blog. All can be opened/downloaded from here. If I know of other places in cyberspace where it can also be found or something relevant regarding it is available, it is mentioned below.
