Computatrum - 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, and I will pull down offending material or insert full acknowledgments as needed.
