About the Author

About the Authors Barry Press is the author of the blockbuster PC Upgrade and Repair Bible, Professional Edition from IDG Books Worldwide. He has designed leading-edge computer hardware, software, and networks for more than 25 years, including a unique cable television modem, campus-wide ATM networks, a desktop computer capable of analyzing adverse drug interactions, and an artificial intelligence planning system. He has programmed Windows since version 1.0 and has taught as an adjunct professor of computer science at the University of Southern California. Marcia Press worked in public accounting as a tax CPA for what was then one of the Big Eight, moving later to her own practice. She handles the administrative part of the work for the Press's computer books - the tracking, calls, followups, and research - and does the sanity checks on the initial drafts. She's a fan of good wine, gardening, reading, and shopping, and is a serious gourmet cook.
