About the Author
Doug Lowe has written a whole bunch of computer books, including more than 35 For Dummies books (such as PowerPoint 2003 For Dummies, Word 2003 All-In-One Desk Reference For Dummies, Networking All-In-One Desk Reference For Dummies, and Internet Explorer 6 For Dummies). He lives in that sunny All-American City of Fresno, California, which isn’t nearly as close to San Francisco as most people think, with his wife and two of his daughters (the other one’s away at college). He’s 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. (For pictures, check out his Web site at www.LoweWriter.com.)
