Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured. ~ Mark Twain

If you think I'm famous, you need to get out more.
Nick's been in the microcomputer industry almost as long as there's been a microcomputer industry. He's sold Pertec "orange toaster" CP/M boxes, just about every computer Apple ever made, Osborne 1s, Kaypros, and most flavors of IBM PCs. He's done technical support for several large companies, and he believes that his 25 years as a professional actor uniquely qualified him for his second career as Manager of Technical Services for the Saunders College of Business at the Rochester Institute of Technology. He is currently the Very Special Assistant to the Dean, and is joyfully transitioning to retirement.

Since 1989, he's done a computer call-in radio show called Sound Bytes ( From 1995 to 2002, he did a computer call-in television show on R News. Since 1996, he's done a weekly computer Q&A column in the Democrat & Chronicle. Since 1998, he's done a monthly column in Computer Link Magazine. Since 1999, he's run his own Web site, AskNick! (, where he answers questions via mailing lists. He's also the proud (?) owner of The Security Tango (

So, as you can see, Nick's life, pretty much, is answering computer questions. He's known for answering them simply, concisely, and logically, in language that does not confuse or talk down to the questioner.
