This site is entirely free of charge and yet almost free of commercial ads. Why? Well because they're ugly! So apart from this banner, you won't find any other commercial spaces. But you have to admit that advertising is pretty profitable and that it enables many websites to keep on living.

So I asked myself the question: what can I do since this website can only continue its growth generating regular incomes, like all other websites. How can I keep on giving access to all this information for free, which I've historically been doing since April 2002 (in french)?

Well thanks to affiliate programs. Meaning that every time you click links from this site towards my partners', they know you're referred by me and give me a small percentage on the sale. It doesn't cost you anything! Everyone wins: you, them, me. And also, feel free to contribute here:
