I found the problem

The black specks showed up because I was too precise in my routine to determine which color the pixel should be.

I am not sure what caused the overflow error, but I can avoid it by offsetting 0+j0 from the exact center of the image.

Check these out:

Oh yeah, I solved the slowness problem, too.

Those black specks are actually kind of cool. I may put them back in.

Nice. I remember playing with a Mandelbrot program back at Colorado State. I would keep zooming in until the program "ran out". I think there was a memory limit or something.
