Bits, Bytes, Pixels, Photo's, Files, ...



I have tried to keep this site as simple, uncluttered and “clean” as possible. I have also tried to avoid using complex and/or archaic English, and I try to avoid slang.

It is difficult to find a single phrase to cover ‘stuff’ such as working with my computers, iPhones, cameras
, scanners, etc.

I’ve also tried to collect hacks and hints together in one place, also about some of the software I use, e.g. RapidWeaver, VueScan, Pixelmator, The Brain, …


And not forgetting ‘stuff’ associated with creating and maintaining this website …


I’ve also put some effort into understanding how to best scan, restore, archive, and print documents and photographs.

I would like to acknowledge the work of Wikipedia. It is often an invaluable source of information and photos, and where appropriate I have used the content liberally. My site is not intended for viewing outside a restricted circle of family and friends, and it is for this reason that I have not provided full acknowledgements for every partial text and photo obtained from the Web.

Any complaints should be addressed to me at bernard.smith@mac.com, and I will pull down offending material or insert full acknowledgments as needed.
