    OK, this is an unusual request, but I thought I'll give it a shot.

    Back in 1996 I found a program online that allowed you to store data on plain paper. How? It prints a pattern of dots, using the entire page, which represent your data. When you need to read your data back, you simply scan the page and the program re-creates the data. So it basically works like a barcode, but using a full page. The idea is that this technique is future-proof, because we always going to have paper and scanners (I guess they "forgot" the program itself ties you to Win9x). I can't remember how much data you can put on one A4 page, but I think it was at most a few megs.

    Now, in this age of CD and DVD recorders, this program is useless (which is why they dissapeared, I guess). I'm looking for this program out of pure curiousity, not for any practical use.

    So if anyone knows anything about this program/company, any info will be much appreaciated.

    I remember this program and probably have it in my file storage. However, I am sure I did not file it with a description, but by name only. Is there any way you can remember a part of it's name?

    Do you mean INTACTA.CODE allows up to 110KB (ballpark figure as alot depends on compression etc) of digital data to be printed on a single page in a pattern of black and white dots.

    or perhaps not ;)
