Andy Rathbone started geeking around with computers in 1985 when he bought a 26- pound portable CP/M Kaypro 2X. Like other nerds of the day, he soon began playing with null-modem adapters, dialing computer bulletin boards , and working parttime at Radio Shack.
He wrote articles for various techie publications before moving to computer books in 1992. He's written the Windows For Dummies series, Upgrading and Fixing PCs for Dummies, TiVo for Dummies , and many other computer books.
Today, he has more than 15 million copies of his books in print, and they've been translated into more than 30 languages. Andy can be reached at his Web site, www.andyrathbone.com.
