By accessing, browsing, or using this site, you acknowledge that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by these terms. If you do not agree to these terms, please do not use this site.

I may, without notice to you, at any time revise these Terms of Use and any other information contained in this site by updating this posting.


The material on this site is copyrighted. You are welcome to cite this site, but you are not allowed to publish copies that are considerably longer than usual citing without having written permission from me (including e-mail). You are welcome to link to this site.

Clarification: Probably because of this paragraph, sometimes I get an e-mail whether one can cite the site. The answer is always the same: yes, you can, I am glad that you find the content useful and that you want to cite it. Also, if you want to copy or paraphrase for example a paragraph or two and you cite the source of your citation, why not, on the contrary, I am really glad that you find it useful. What I really don't like is if someone just takes the text of a whole tutorial, including images, and copies it without any change to other site and doesn't mention the origin of the text, and even claims that it is his original work (yes, it did happen, and it didn't happen only once). On the other hand, I did give permissions to publish a copy of a whole tutorial, even including applets etc. - for example on a university intranet when my site was inaccessible from some place, on a CD accompanying an event etc. - it always had a reason, and they did ask before doing that.
