Site Policy

Any Browser, Any OS

My goal is to make the information in these pages available to everyone, regardless of the browser or operating system used.
I think I achieved this goal, but do not expect the same ease of navigation with JavaScript disabled.



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.

Keep in mind that if you click on advertisements your browser will navigate to the advertiser's site, which will have its own privacy policy. The privacy policy of is only valid on pages located at



My books pages link to
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.

Note that if you click on advertisements your browser will navigate to the advertiser's site, which will have its own privacy policy.

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.

This site no longer uses cookies.


Link exchange

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.



JavaScript is used to support easy navigation through this site.
Without it, there will be a limited menu at the left of the screen, without the submenus.

The unit conversion page relies on JavaScript to calculate the converted values.

Every page on my web site can be read with any browser, though navigation may be a little clumsier without JavaScript.

The webstats counter and some advertisements are generated by and use JavaScript.



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.
They are HTML/CSS/JavaScript based and are displayed in the same window.


Browser Compatibility

This site uses JavaScript and CSS 2.0 for its navigation (plus a little CSS 3 for printing in FireFox).
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 3 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 Internet Explorer 9, FireFox 5 and Opera 11.
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.
