WordPress: How do I bring in just the author name and not the author's name with a link to all their archived posts?

I am trying to bring in a posts author without a link to all the authors archived posts so I can instead include a link to the author's google+ profile.

Here is the current code:
Posted in: <?php the_category(',');?> by <?php the_author_posts_link();?> &nbsp; | &nbsp; <?php comments_popup_link('0 Comment','1 Comment','% Comments');?>

Open in new window


Here is what I thought it would be, but the get_the_author call doesn't bring in anything.
Posted in: <?php the_category(',');?> by <a rel="author" href="https://profiles.google.com/mygoogleID" target="_blank" title="Visit my Google+ Profile"><?php get_the_author();?></a>  &nbsp; | &nbsp; <?php comments_popup_link('0 Comment','1 Comment','% Comments');?>

Open in new window


I'm also wondering if there is a way to bring in any of the other author's profile fields.

I've requested that this question be closed as follows:

Accepted answer: 0 points for JulesWebb's comment #37707652
Assisted answer: 500 points for singleton's comment #37707015

for the following reason:

singleton questions lead me to find my own answer, which I included so anyone else interested would know how I resolved the issue.
That is what we are here for. I am going to object simply because it seems to indicate that the question will just be closed, but not PAQed (i.e. be a Previously Answered quesion for others to see), and you indicated you wanted others to see what you finally decided.
Thanks singleton, I didn't understand about "PAQed" Can you tell me what action I'm suppose to take?
no they just changed the software but a moderator should show up
So the question will be PAQed?  That was all that was unclear to me
