This web­site is type­set in Mal­abar, designed by Dan reynolds. The font is self-hosted and licensed from Mono­type Imag­ing. This web­site was designed and coded by yours truly.

For almost ten years this web­site ran on Word­Press, the excel­lent, free open-source CMS. Since 2017, it runs on the much slim­mer, quicker, more straight­for­ward (and data­base-free) system, Kirby.

Solid State Discs from InMo­tion servers in Los Ange­les power this web­site while con­tent is served through one of Amazon’s 50+ sev­eral Cloud­flare edge caches around the world, depend­ing on your loca­tion.

2. Ref­er­ences and links

In the case of direct or indi­rect ref­er­ences to third-party web­sites (“hyper­links”), which lie out­side the respon­si­bil­ity of the author, a lia­bil­ity oblig­a­tion would only come into force in the case in which the author is aware of the con­tents and it is tech­ni­cally pos­si­ble and rea­son­able , To pre­vent the use in case of ille­gal con­tents.

The author has no influ­ence on the cur­rent and future design, the con­tent or the origin of the linked / linked pages. There­fore, he hereby expressly dis­so­ci­ates him­self from all con­tents of all linked pages, which were changed after the link set­ting. This state­ment applies to all links and ref­er­ences placed within the author’s own inter­net site, as well as to for­eign entries in guest books, dis­cus­sion forums, link lists, mail­ing lists set up by the author, and in all other forms of data­bases, to which exter­nal write access is pos­si­ble. Lia­bil­ity for ille­gal, incor­rect or incom­plete con­tents and in par­tic­u­lar for dam­ages result­ing from the use or non-use of such pro­vided infor­ma­tion is the sole respon­si­bil­ity of the provider of the page referred to, not the person who merely refers to the respec­tive pub­li­ca­tion via links.

Repro­duc­tion or use of such graph­ics, sound doc­u­ments, video sequences and texts in other elec­tronic or printed pub­li­ca­tions is not per­mit­ted with­out the express con­sent of the author.
