About Nibbles and Bytes

My name is Brett Christensen, and I’ve been writing about various Internet and computer related topics since 2003. I also operate the popular hoax and scam busting website Hoax-Slayer.

Nibbles and Bytes offers easy-to-understand insights on a range of computer and Internet related topics.

In my reports, I avoid jargon and explain technical terms or concepts within the text. I want to make the information I provide accessible to users at all levels of computing experience.

I operate Nibbles and Bytes (and Hoax-Slayer) from my home in Queensland, Australia.

While the site is mainly focused on computing and Internet topics, I do throw in an occasional post that doesn’t fit neatly into the main site categories.  I store these in the “Extras” category.

What’s in a Name?

Why the name “Nibbles and Bytes”? Well, a “byte” is a collection of 8 binary digits (bits) and is the unit that computers use to represent a character such as a letter or a number. So, it seems fitting for a blog about computers, software, and tech topics. And a “nibble” is half a byte, so it also references the tech and computer sphere.

Site History

Nibbles and Bytes started as a simple little blog over at way back in April 2004. Over the years, I posted intermittently, with lengthy periods when the blog was pretty much neglected as I worked on other, more pressing projects.

In 2014, I decided to relaunch the blog and take a more serious approach to the project. So, I moved Nibbles and Bytes from to its own hosting account and installed the popular web creation tool WordPress.


All the reviews, tips and ideas on this site are presented in good faith and reflect my own experience of the topics discussed. But, of course, your mileage may vary. I cannot guarantee that your experience will always mirror my own.
