## Kudos:

m/Bits'n'Bites, who wrote Soundbox (, the tracker used for the music

p01, whose write-ups( about 4k development in javascript also helped and inspired methods how to write shorter code in MATLAB

all the authors of various javascript crunchers, whose ideas on polyglot png/html/javascript files inspired making the self-extracting pcode/.zip files

zopfli team at Google, whose tool was used to optimize the deflate streams in the zip
