About the Author

Galen A. Grimes has been working with computers since 1980 when he purchased his first PC, an Apple II+. Since then he has worked on PCs using DOS, Windows (3.1/95/NT 4.0), and UNIX and has programmed in about a dozen different programming languages including C/C++, Assembler, Pascal, BASIC, and Xbase. Galen has a master's degree in Information Science from the University of Pittsburgh and is currently a computer systems project manager at Mellon Bank in Pittsburgh, PA.

Galen has worked as an author for several Macmillan Computer Publishing divisions for the past six years and has written Sams Teach Yourself Upgrading and Fixing PCs in 24 Hours, 10 Minute Guide to PC Upgrades, Sams Teach Yourself Netscape Communicator in 24 Hours, 10 Minute Guide to Netscape With Windows 95, 10 Minute Guide to the Internet With Windows 95, 10 Minute Guide to Novell NetWare, 10 Minute Guide to Lotus Improv, First Book of DR DOS 6, and 10 Minute Guide to the Internet and World Wide Web, second and third editions.

Although originally born and raised in Texas, Galen makes his home now in a quiet, heavily wooded section of Monroeville, PA, a suburb of Pittsburgh, with his wife Joanne and an assortment of deer, raccoons, squirrels, chipmunks, possums, groundhogs, and birds, which are all fed from their back door. Besides working with computers and surfing the Internet, Galen also spends his time playing golf, bicycling, dabbling in amateur astronomy, gardening, cooking, and refining the art of "couch-potatoing." Each fall, he and his wife Joanne are transformed into two of the most enthusiastic football fans for Penn State's Nittany Lions (see http://www.psu.edu/sports).
