Author Notes

A longtime reporter and editor, Nolan Hester has worked on everything from mainframe newspaper systems to that first breakthrough laptop for reporters in the field: Tandy's "Trash-80." For a while, he had a KayPro but it was stolen, perhaps by someone who mistook its blue metal case for a Ward's sewing machine. Its replacement: a Fat Mac with a massive 512K of RAM and a copy of Word 1.05. There's been no looking back since--for any of us.

A former development and acquisitions editor at Peachpit Press, he also managed the launch of its award-winning Web site. He now works as a freelance writer, editor and Web consultant.
