Computing for fun

Every month, Grandpa's computing articles are published in the International computer magazine, PC World West Africa (PCWWA). The publisher is Microbyte International (Nig) Ltd. PCWWA is the forerunner of PCWorld Nigeria published locally. PCWWA is designed to serve the whole of West Africa and it is in partnership with International Data Group (IDG) publisher of PC World. PC World is published in 63 countries and 30 languages. 

This page is created to share grandpa's articles with family members and friends who may not have the opportunity to read PC World West Africa. The articles in the table below have been

published in the magazine in the past. It should be possible to get back issues from the publishers whose address is given below. But some of our visitors who are interested in reading these articles have expressed difficulties in getting them. We therefore decided to include in each update one or two of the published articles.

In addition, like every computer enthusiast, we often discover some very interesting software in our surfing sessions. We want to share with you here some of our recent discoveries which are included in the section on Our Software Discoveries. Click the links above to see the latest discoveries.
