About the Author
Susan Douglas is the CEO of Conjectrix, Inc., a software consulting firm specializing in database- and security-related issues. When she’s not busy at the computer, Susan is probably throwing pottery, glassblowing, or horseback riding.
Korry Douglas is the Director of Research and Development for Appx Software. When he’s not working on computers, he’s making elegant sawdust in the woodshop.
Together, they are the coauthors of Red Hat Linux Fedora Desktop For Dummies and PostgreSQL.
Susan and Korry enjoy life on a farm in rural Virginia where they raise horses and small livestock. They both telecommute, so they have more time to spend with their 200 or so animal friends. If they’re not at home, they’re out riding roller coasters.
