About the Author
Pete is the original Dial-A-Nerd. The Dial-A-Nerd concept was created in the late 1980's to provide telephone help to the general public. Dial-A-Nerd was originally advertised in the 1990 USA Today classifieds. Dial-A-Nerd became the Dial-A-Nerd Radio show on WJFK Radio and then the Technically Correct TV Show on WMAR ABC Channel 2 in Baltimore. Pete has certainly been around since before the earliest days of personal computers. During his early years working in data communications he personally met some of the pioneers of the Internet, but he never met Al Gore. Pete often likes to claim he's older than the dust in a 1981 PC. Pete founded The Moulton Company. The Moulton Company developed and delivered the first PC Troubleshooting Seminar for Data Tech Institute in the mid 1980's. Following from this Pete has developed and delivered seminars on Telecommunications, PC Troubleshooting and Repair, and PC Networking on every continent on the Planet save Antarctica. Pete wrote several books for Prentice-Hall Publishers including "A+ Certification and PC Repair Guide","The Telecommunications Survival Guide", and "SOHO Networking." Pete's PC support and troubleshooting experience comes from building and supporting PCs, and training non-technical users to maintain and troubleshoot PCs over the last 30 years. His work continues today and has led to writing and publishing "Pete the Nerd's Do It Yourself Virus Removal."
