A Power User's Desktop Guide

About the Author:

Robin Nixon has worked with and written about computers since the early 1980s (his first computer was a Tandy TRS 80 Model 1 with a massive 4KB of RAM!). One of the web sites he developed presented the world's first radio station licensed by the music copyright holders. In order to enable people to continue to surf while listening, Robin also developed the first known pop-up windows.

Robin has worked for many of Britain's main IT magazine publishers where he has held several roles including editorial, promotions, and cover disc editing. He is the author of over 500 magazine articles and eight books on computing, including the top-selling Learning PHP, MySQL and JavaScript.
