Founder & Proven Problem Solver
Arthur Dellea received a Commodore 64 computer as a Christmas gift from his parents in 1986, when he taught himself the BASIC programming language. In high school he began marketing his own programs by mail as Shareware with the aspiration of starting his own computer software company some day. In his senior year he received a Tandy 2500SX-25 with Windows 3.0 and started programming in QBasic.
After high school, Arthur worked full-time at a local office supply warehouse where he bought the parts to custom-build his first Windows 95 tower to run a Wildcat BBS, to program in QuickBasic, and to compose music using multi-track sampling software. His fellow employees noticed his technical skills and regularly asked him to stop by their homes after work to help them with PC issues, which urged him to become a Windows computer consultant in 1996.
In addition to running soundboards and playing drums with friends and family at church and live events from the late 1990s into the early 2000s, Arthur created several albums of eclectic music on his computers and re-released six of them on Christmas 2022. You'll find his music on Amazon Music, Apple Music, Spotify, Youtube and most other popular music streaming services. Arthur is also well-known for writing in-depth articles on HubPages.
