About the Author:

Graham Glass graduated from the University of Southampton, England, with a bachelor's degree in computer science and mathematics in 1983. He emigrated to the United States and obtained his master's degree in computer science from the University of Texas at Dallas in 1985. He then worked as a UNIX/C systems analyst and became heavily involved with research in neural networks and parallel distributed processing. He later taught at the University of Texas at Dallas, covering a wide variety of courses, including UNIX, C, assembly language, programming languages, C++, and Smalltalk. He co-founded a corporation called ObjectSpace and currently trains and consults for such companies as DSC Corporation, Texas Instruments, Northern Telecom, J.C. Penney, and Bell Northern Research, using his OOP and parallel systems knowledge to design and build a parallel object-oriented computer system and language based on the Inmos T9000 transputer chip. In his spare time, he writes music, scuba dives, skis, and occasionally sleeps.

King Ables earned his bachelor's degree in computer science from the University of Texas at Austin in 1982. He has been a UNIX user, developer, systems administrator, or consultant since 1979, working at both small start-up companies and large corporations. He has provided support and training, developed UNIX product software and systems tools, and written product documentation and training materials. In the 1990s, he was the sole proprietor of a UNIX consulting concern in Austin before deciding to move to the mountains of Colorado. Prior to this project, he published a book on UNIX systems administration. He has written many magazine articles on various UNIX topics and holds a software patent on an e-commerce privacy mechanism. His professional interests include networking security and Internet privacy, but he likes hiking and skiing a bit more.
