    The pages of this web site were created to foster the dissemination of scientific knowledge and communication of researchers, in particular in the area of the history of computing in science and engineering, as well as supporting researchers and collectors of mathematical instruments and computing devices. There is no commercial aim of any kind.

No warranties

    Our web pages are intended for the scolarly presentation and communcation to continue our research after the formal retirement from the university. We are bound by the academic standards and traditions as well as the law, but the world of the internet seems to require an extra declaration. So, to make the lawyers happy, we declare:

Any use is completely on your own risk, no warranties of any kind, neither stated nor implied.

    The very nature of science and engineering development implies that newer research or constructions will augment, change or invalidate previous results and knowledge. As a consequence, any web pages offered here can be changed, replaced, and also deleted, at any time, as well as any web page elsewhere to which we placed a link.

    Any reasonable web site will will contain a number / a lot of web references (links) to pages of other information providers.

What's fine today can be very different tomorrow, can suddenly be located at another URL, or can furthermore just become unavailable, all of that at any time.
