This section contains various minimalist software programs that are tiny yet very powerful, in particular, the world's smallest, fastest and most efficient image optimization programs, JPGExtra and PNGExtra.
Having experimented with computer graphics since the very earliest days (over forty years ago), I consider myself a "Pixeltech". This section gives some information and advice about computer graphics.
This is my own little part of the Internet, where I tell a little about myself and share some of my thoughts and ideas with the world. Don't mistake this for a "blog" - I rarely update this section.
This Internet-viewable genealogical tree of the Fieggen Family contains information on my Dutch, German and French ancestry back to the 1600's.
