Nick Skrepetos, PopUpSentry.com's founder, has enjoyed a
distinguished career of over 23 years of leading edge software
design and development. In 2000, Skrepetos founded Panicware, Inc,
and served as its president and head of development and
independently created the Pop-Up Stopper product and product line.
Nick designed the first toolbar based ad-blocker that is still used
in Pop-Up Stopper® Companion marketed by Panicware, Inc. Pop-Up
Stopper® is the most frequently downloaded basic pop-up blocker to
date with over 20 million downloads worldwide since 2000.
In February of 2004, Nick resigned as President and Chief Technology
Officer of Panicware, Inc. while remaining a principal shareholder,
and founded SuperAdBlocker.com and PopUpSentry.com in order to
concentrate on state of the art ad blocking software development and
products. Following his departure from Panicware, Inc., all of the
members of the then existing development team joined him.
Prior to founding Panicware, Inc., Nick was the founder and CEO of
Human Machine Interfaces, Inc. which pioneered the first digital
mixing sound system (Sound Operating System) that helped
revolutionize in-game audio by allowing games to play more than one
digital sound at a time. This of course is common place today but
was unheard of in 1992. The Sound Operating System was used in more
than 500 games, including such hits as Wing Commander III, Links
Golf, and Theme Park.
Nick got his start in audio technology at Covox, Inc. a small
company that was a pioneer in the voice recognition industry.
In 1988, Nick worked in the highly competitive game industry for
Dynamix, Inc. a Eugene, OR Start-Up Company that later became one
of the more prominent developers in the computer game industry and
was later acquired by Sierra Online. While at Dynamix, Nick
F14-Tomcat, a flight and combat simulator.
As early as 1984 Nick was honing his skills on the Apple IIe and
Commodore 64 computers, coding in assembly language which is now a
lost art, but at the time it was the only way to accomplish the
development of high-performance applications.
Nick has consulted with and provided services for a number of
companies including such companies as Intel, S3, Diamond Multimedia,
Tektronix, Sierra Online, SOVE, Inc. and Electronic Arts/Westwood
