New data compressor released
Wednesday, 18 December 2013

In the last few months, a novel data compression algorithm was developed, featuring extremely fast decompression speeds suitable for embedded applications and real-time decompression.

The "Nibbler" is a data compressor that innately due to its construction fills a vacant niche: real-time decompression. It's capable of delivering decompression speeds more than five times faster than standard compressors, without sacrificing compression ratios. Please have a look at the statistics. (Bear in mind that 7-Zip and similar modern archiver-only algorithms deliver better ratios than LZX, but have even slower decompression.)

The current software package is available for the 68000 series CPUs, since it was licensed for use in the firmware of Individual Computers' ACA500 expansion card products. Like any compressor, it can be ported to any platform. Natural targets are ARM platforms and as low-level libraries for any high-level language.

The version 1.02 package  is a public release that can be used and spread freely as is. To include the decompressor as part of your commercial or non-commercial software however, requires a license.

Contact us!  Chances are we will be intrigued by your project and help you get the most out of this new type of compressor.  

bitBrain Studios no longer does website, mobile app, or database work
Tuesday, 15 October 2013

For a while now, I've ceased to take on any website, mobile app, or database work whatsoever following my employment at Avia AB. If you still need my programming services, direct your enquiries to this company. It is a small company with years of experience in each of these fields, and we'll be happy to develop any of these things as well as web apps and administration systems!

New Site Design
Saturday, 06 November 2010

What a difference a file makes!

Still using a distinct design and not quite succumbing to the white background, black text boredom, this design was made in 3.5 hours. Some details have been adjusted since, as needs arose.

With no structural changes, this is simply a new Photoshop+CSS design. If you wish, you can compare it to the 2004 design of our 'clone' site, The intent is to move the site to this web address, so see you there!

It was time for a change. Hope you like it!

bitBrain Studios welcomes IBAG Scandinavia, Improve Automation
Friday, 16 November 2007
The two companies are merging their sites into a larger site, and we've been chosen to design it. The site will be the new site for the Scandinavian distributor of IBAG worldwide. Good-bye tedious HTML editing, and hello to the CMS of choice for easy maintenance and updating!
What is a CMS ?
Friday, 07 September 2007

A CMS, or Content Management System, is simply a system for creating and maintaining small and complex sites easily - no more HTML editing! All content is stored on your host's database and can be backed up when you want to. The framework - the HTML that gives the visitor access to all your content - is minimized, and you are never changing files on the site itself, which gives a much more stable and trouble-free foundation.

This gives possibilities for much more complex sites, where information that the visitor needs is supplied dynamically, and allows for future growth ...

Our company can now offer hosting
Friday, 31 August 2007

bitBrain Studios have become resellers for Liquidnet Ltd, London. If you pay us to set up/design a site for you, we can offer to include feature-rich hosting with domain name registration for the first year! Thereafter, the hosting and domain registration fee would be from $55/year, depending on which package you choose. Have a look at the features:

Slow site? Never!
Friday, 31 August 2007

We are experiencing low speed with (our current .se host). We have been promised this will be corrected, but needless to say, if the slow speeds and occasional hiccups persist, we will switch hosts - it is naturally unacceptable. If it were possible, we'd use our partner, LiquidNet Ltd, however, they can register international domain names ony. For others experiencing the same with, we might suggest which is the one we're looking at now.

This means that page loading times reflect the host performance and not the lean 38.7KB template used here.

Why this design?
Thursday, 30 August 2007

Mainly to demonstrate that we can make 3D graphics for web designs - and that we can make sites with distinctive style! Visitors will remember where they got that solacious info. Most web designers basically have one style; the one they learned in online Photoshop tutorials.

The colors of our design spectrum will unfold as our portfolio grows. Don't underestimate the impact of a site with fresh colors and distinct graphical detailing!

Thursday, 23 August 2007

We recently finished Cad One's new website. The task was to create a compact, light-weight, fast loading site with a logical structure for existing content. Work included was:

  • design with 'non-flashy' 3D graphics
  • similar layout and typography, so previous customers feel at home
  • a simple structure to divide existing content logically
