With your consent, the (anonymous) information about your use of this site is shared with our advertising and analytics partners.
Any tips, remarks or questions e-mailed to me will of course be saved in my e-mail directories. They will not be transferred to any other person without your "written" (e-mailed) consent.
Any tips, remarks or questions posted to news groups will be considered public material and may be referred to on my web pages — including the author's name or nickname. Please contact me at my e-mail address if, in any way, you do not agree.
Your computer's IP address and domain name are tracked and stored by my web site statistics counters, for statistics purposes only.
This website uses Google Analytics for website statistics, i.e. to learn which pages are popular, where visitors come from, what browsers and screen sizes they use, etcetera.
This information is of vital importance to help me improve this web site.
To block Google Analytics completely, install Google's Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.
Cookies are also used on some pages to display warnings only once, or to allow visitors to hide "legacy" code on a page.
In case you want to disble cookies entirely: you will still be able to browse this site.
No cookies will be set without your consent.

Like many non-commercial websites, this site uses advertisements to cover the costs and maybe even make a little profit.
This site is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com.
This site uses Google AdSense to serve ads. Read how Google uses data when you use this site.
My books pages link to Amazon.com.
Advertisements and other sponsored links on this site will be recognizable as such.
Many, but not all, downloads in the tools/downloads pages are "affiliate links". I try to be as objective as possible in presenting available downloads; if I can earn a buck that's great, if I can't, too bad, but I'll include it anyway.
Advertisements on this site are served by third-party advertising companies (Amazon, Google's AdSense).
These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.

I do not exchange links.
If I think a site may be of interest to visitors of my own site, I will add a link, without any obligation for a "reverse link".
Please do not link to my site unless you think it may be worthwhile for your visitors.
Without it, there will be a limited menu.
This site does not use Java.
This site does not use ActiveX, as it would limit access to Internet Explorer only.
On some Windows NT related pages you may get a "popup message" (or dialog) showing extra information, when clicking on a hyperlink.
My goal is to make the information in these pages available to everyone, regardless of the browser or operating system used.
This possibly limits the site to "modern" browsers like FireFox (any), Opera (9 and later?), and Internet Explorer 4 and later....
When I started creating this site, it was still feasible to test each page in most common browser versions.
I also used to test each page in 3 different screen resolutions.
Things have changed. I simply don't have that many computers with different screen resolutions anymore.
I do occasionally test the pages on my laptop's 1280x800 screen using SIZER, but though that may change the window size, it doesn't scale down the browser fonts proportionally.
I test my pages with up-to-date versions of Internet Explorer (on Windows 7), FireFox, Chrome and Opera.
If you do run into problems with any of my pages, please notify me at my e-mail address; state your browser version and (relevant) settings and the URL of the page that is causing the problem. I will try to solve the problem as soon as possible.
