Tony Aveyard has been in the IT business for more than 20 years. During his career, he has worked on the desk side support team and the data communications team, and has spent more than seven years in Notes administration. He's currently leading the Web & eBusiness team for Siemens Business Services in Mason, Ohio. He lives in Cincinnati, Ohio, with Kathi, his lovely bride of five years; his two kids, Marie and Garet; and the beloved family dog, Tango. FPS and role-playing computer games are still a passion after many years of world-conquering and Orc-killing, but the desire nearest his heart is to be a full-time fiction writer and share his adventures with the world.
Karen Fishwick has been actively working with Notes and Domino since Release 3. She became a Certified Lotus Professional in Release 3 in 1995 and a Certified Lotus Instructor in 1996. She has upgraded that certification through each release of Notes/Domino and now holds the CLP designation for R6 in both the system administration and application development tracks.
Karen has been delivering the certified Lotus curriculum to students all over Canada for more than eight years. Based in Ottawa, Canada, she provides consulting and training services to a wide array of both public- and private-sector clients.
She has been involved as an author or technical editor for many book projects over the past five years. Karen is ideally suited to be a co-author of this book because of her long-standing experience with the Lotus certification tests. She has written exams in every release of the Domino System Administration track, from R3 to R6. She has also participated as author or editor in books dealing with Domino certification for R4, R5, and R6.
As an independent consultant, Karen has assisted many clients with both administration and development projects. Her focus over the past couple of years has been in the areas of administrative troubleshooting for servers and resolving access-control problems within applications.
Karen currently lives in Ottawa with her husband, Warren, and her 4-year-old twins, Beth and Cam. In her spare time, she enjoys cooking, playing sports, and taking an active role in her local church.
