Tommy's IT writing is most deeply rooted in step-by-step "how-to" procedures that anyone can follow. Tommy has also contributed institutional knowledge and its internal legacy or logic to easily searchable reference databases. Tommy has also written software and hardware upgrade and purchasing recommendations, primarily for non-technical first line managers.
Tommy has researched, written, and published an ebook on gardening and cooking, including practical action items such as techniques, tips and recipes. Tommy's interest in math has led him to write and publish six puzzle books for a range of difficulty levels with associated training modules. Tommy has also been a contributor to a diet and weight loss compilation; a collection accountss of people who have followed current programs and their successes.
Much of Tommy's blogging in the last 13 years has been personally reflective and intimate, however, he has occasionally written more general technology related articles, job search evaluations and LGBT concerns. For more entertainment value than productivity, Tommy has written travelogues, trivia quizzes, as well as reviews for dating sites, television shows, movies, video games, concerts and books.
