Author Information

Mark L. Chambers has been an author, computer consultant, BBS sysop, programmer, and hardware technician for more than 30 years -- pushing computers and their uses far beyond "normal" performance limits for decades now. His first love affair with a computer peripheral blossomed in 1984 when he bought his lightning-fast 300 BPS modem for his Atari 400. Now he spends entirely too much time on the Internet and drinks far too much caffeine-laden soda.
