any browser logoviewable by ANY browser!   (but only Mozilla (and therefore Netscape 6--7, Phoenix, Chimera and Galeon too) supports PNG transparency for a while, Opera since version 6, M§IE since v6.1 on Windoze and since version 5.2 on Mac OS X, Safari and Konqueror since 2.2 do it also right --- and due to the hostile and in Europe illegal behaviour of Unisys I felt the urge to substitute the not animated GIFs by PNGs, which will look in case of transparency usage not identically in older browsers like Netscape 4.8 due to their faults; MNG, the pendant to GIF89 for animations is still displayed only by Gecko based browsers)

Search my site:


The main intention of this homepage is to present interesting links of scientific and computational interest not only for scientists along with an evaluation of the presented sites and - if necessary - a few remarks about the contents. Some further scientific, especially astronomical and physical informations are also given. Besides a few other scientific and technical/computational topics further a few non-scientific themes are discussed especially about the societies of the USA and Germany and my opinions are presented, alongside with related matters, finally an even more non-scientific matter is discussed: (prominent) people (especially women) and the Internet.

I choose English as language, because it's a World Wide Web... But a few sections are in German, where I consider this as appropriate (for example, if I discuss a homepage in German) and these are marked with the german flag: German Flag  --- die deutsche Fahne zeigt, wo Text in Deutsch steht (wenn es jemand unbedingt möchte, kann ich versuchen, englischsprachige Teile auch zusätzlich in Deutsch anzubieten, aber das ist viel Arbeit... Und deshalb mache ich das nur ausnahmsweise, z.B. bei besonders stark nachgefragten Seiten.).

Updates of single pages are marked in parentheses here on this index page too. Only the current and the previous month are marked anyway.

(if anybody wants to know, who am I, look  here --- wenn jemand wissen möchte, wer ich bin, dann möge er/sie hier nachsehen. )

Short Presentation of Myself (Kurzvorstellung):
I am a 1965 born physicist and working as software engineer and UNIX expert in Germany. I try always to keep honest and I am used to express my thoughts without watering them down... I hope readers of my homepage are not annoyed or even upset by my posture. Besides, the most of my interests are visible in the above overview of contents; and finally: my email address contains my real name (Stefan Urbat).

Auf Deutsch: Ich bin ein 1965 geborener Diplom-Physiker und arbeite als Software-Entwickler und UNIX-Experte in Deutschland. Ich versuche, stets ehrlich zu sein und bin es gewohnt, meine Gedanken und Ideen zu äußern, ohne sie zu verwässern... Ich hoffe, dass Besucher meiner Homepage wegen meiner Haltung nicht verärgert oder gar aufgebracht sind. Nebenbei sind die meisten meiner Interessen oben aufgeführt; und schließlich enthält meine email-Adresse meinen wirklichen Namen (Stefan Urbat).
