What's on Brandon Staggs' Desktop
I am Brandon Staggs, the author of all of the programs sold by Akamai Software. I've been a hopeless computer addict since I received a Commodore 64 as a Christmas present when I was nine years old. The Commodore 64 had a built-in operating system that gave a comforting, glowing "READY" prompt when you switched it on. Even at that early age I enjoyed reading technical manuals, and dove into the programming book that came with the computer and taught myself how to program on it.

What's on Gary Elfring's Desktop
My name is Gary Elfring and I own Elfring Fonts, Inc., a software and font development company incorporated in 1979. I built my first Z80 based computer in 1975 from a kit. (The Digital Group Group- and yes that was the name, not a typo.) It came with no operating system, so I input data from toggle switches. When the CP/M operating system came out and I wrote and sold the CP/M bios for this particular brand of computer. I wrote my first game for CP/M and distributed it on the very first BBS that could handle downloads. (It was a complete failure.)

What's on Harold Holmes' Desktop
My name is Harold Holmes and I'm a computer programmer by trade and my company is Lincoln Beach Software. I've been using computers for about 23 years. My first computer was a Tandy Color Computer with 64k of memory. I think it ran OS/9 but I'm not 100% sure. My favorite work related program would have to be Delphi! I don't play many games but I do like Rainbow 6/Tom Clancy, and Roller coaster Tycoon.

What's on Rosemary K. West's desktop
The first PC I used was a TRS-80 Model 1, back around 1980, and I credit that machine with starting my life on a very unexpected path. DOS was my first operating system, and I still like to drop out to a command prompt now and then to get a few things done fast. Naming my favorite work-related program is nearly impossible, since my needs and preferences change constantly. Right now I like CuteFTP a lot. My favorite game is still Sim City 2000.
