Most of my PDF files, including files not formally introduced on this blog like my M.A. thesis, can be found on my page of While I used to post my files on in the past, I now use as my preferred platform.
I decided to switch after I discovered that parts of my more recent uploads on Scribd were intentionally blurred by the website managers and could only be seen unrestricted by paid subscription, a policy that was implemented without my knowledge or consent (in fact, I don't receive anything from those subscription fees). Furthermore, although the tables in the PDF files were flawless when I created them, but when displayed on Scribd sometimes errors showed up like skipped columns or other distortions.
However, my page on still exists and contains some of my older files which I haven’t edited in years and didn’t include on 
If you still encounter problems on either page, please feel free to contact me by e-mail so that I can send you the requested PDF file(s) as e-mail attachment. I will be glad to help as well if you have trouble downloading any of my PDF files posted on or don't want to bother signing up (or pay) as a Scribd user/subscriber but still would like to have PDF files created by me on your hard drive. Furthermore, I can also send you all future updates of such files.
