About Ian Fieggen's Site


This website was first started many years ago as an experiment in what was then the relatively new phenomenon called “The Internet”. I put a couple of pages on-line mainly to experiment with HTML coding and computer graphics. I gradually started adding information that I figured would be useful, plus incorporating new styles and technologies as the Internet evolved.

I now spend most of my time updating my Ian's Shoelace Site, so I rarely update this section.

Website Content

What sort of website?

Ian Fieggen's Site is not a commercial website – I'm not selling anything! Most people today would probably call this website a “blog”, but that word didn't even exist when this website began. It's basically a few vanity pages – mainly for the benefit of those visitors who have browsed my various websites and want to know something more about the author.

Is the content “Kid Safe”?

While my website is not specifically targeted at kids and therefore contains fairly difficult words, I believe that all the content of my Ian Fieggen's Site is safe for kids. In other words, it's partly “Kid Friendly”, but totally “Kid Safe”. It contains no coarse language, contains no “adult references”, is non-explicit, is not defamatory or offensive – you get the general idea! I'm not infallible, so please Contact Me if you find anything that you consider would best be changed or removed to make this website more “Kid Safe”.

Who owns the content?

The contents of this website are Copyright © 1999-2024 by Ian W. Fieggen. I reserve the rights to all content, including writing, text, images, sounds, videos, coding, programming, scripts, etc. contained on this website.

Who can re-use the content?

Generally, I'm pretty agreeable to others passing on this knowledge by using portions of the content of this website provided that you simply credit Ian Fieggen's Site as the source or myself (Ian Fieggen) as the author. Obviously, you're welcome to print a page or two from this website to show to someone else! Should you wish to reproduce or otherwise make use of portions in your own derivative works – such as in books, magazines, etc. – please Contact Me first to obtain written permission.

Browse safely

Cookies? Web bugs? Tracking code? Flash? Pop-ups?

I've tried to keep Ian Fieggen's Site as simple and straightforward as possible, and have kept it free of the sort of nonsense used by many other websites:

  • NO cookies, web bugs or other forms of tracking;
  • NO memory-hogging Flash animations;
  • NO invasive or dangerous scripts;
  • NO annoying pop-ups.

These sorts of things are often the cause of both user frustration and browser problems, and can range from annoying to invasive to downright dangerous. I don't like them, I consider them unwarranted, and I do NOT use them on my website!

In short, you should be able to browse this website in complete confidence.
