Doug Lowe has been writing computer programming books since the guys who invented Java were still in high school. He’s written books on COBOL, Fortran, Visual Basic, for IBM mainframe computers, mid-range systems, PCs, Web programming, and probably a few he’s forgotten about. He’s the author of more than 30 For Dummies books, such as Networking For Dummies (7th Edition), Networking For Dummies All-in-One Desk Reference, PowerPoint 2003 For Dummies, and Internet Explorer 6 For Dummies. He lives in that sunny All-American City Fresno, California, where the motto is, “It’s a sunny, All-American City,” with his wife and the youngest of his three daughters. He’s also one of those obsessive-compulsive decorating nuts who puts up tens of thousands of lights at Christmas and creates computer-controlled Halloween decorations that rival Disney’s Haunted Mansion. Maybe his next book should be Tacky Holiday Decorations For Dummies.
