(or the most useful, but unnoticed page)

During my work as a scientist I've realized that one can save a lot of time if you know where to find which information. Often enough it seems impossible to find the where until someone else tells you. That is why this page and the which-information-box exists ;-)
As described on the legal-page I do not have any influence on the contents of the linked webpages!
