This website is a personal site written and edited by me, Diana Kupke, who is mostly in a sane state of mind but who occasionally can be very crabby, particularly where words and trees are concerned.
This blog does not accept any form of advertising, sponsorship, or paid insertions. I write for my own purposes which means I may be influenced by my background, occupation, lack of religion, and/or personal experiences.
The owner of this blog, Diana Kupke, does not receive compensation in any way from this blog/website. I never have, and I never will because I run this website for my own amusement.
Diana Kupke is not compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites, or various other topics. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely those of Diana Kupke. If I claim, or appear to be an expert on a certain topic or product or service area, I will only endorse products or services that I believe, based on my personal expertise, are worthy of such endorsement. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider.
Diana Kupke very much appreciates the input given to this site by people from all over Australia and from overseas. The input is given freely and no financial consideration is provided by aforesaid Diana Kupke who has always wanted to write that word.
This blog/website does not contain any content which might present a conflict of interest.
This website has a specific page for external links all of which are the result of Diana Kupke's personal contacts and interests and all of which are checked regularly. Readers are requested to report broken links to Diana Kupke. External links may also appear on other pages on the Diana Kupke website and these are provided to direct readers to further information. Internal links often appear on my pages, the better to aid one's navigation through the site.
I place links within my website while acting with the best intentions and I do not accept liability to any person for the information or advice provided by these external links. I, Diana Kupke, take no responsibility for the information contained on any external website, and links are provided on the basis that users make their own decisions about the accuracy, currency, and reliability of the information contained therein. The information does not substitute for advice from any qualified professional. In particular I do not provide any information about the present pandemic except to say, here, please do not pay attention to anyone online except for professionals.
All day-to-day updates and maintenance (including currency, accuracy, content inclusion, and quality control) of the Diana Kupke website is undertaken purely by Diana Kupke who finds great enjoyment in everything pertaining to website development and the challenges which arise are invaluable. On occasion the pages of coding may appear to be spattered with my blood, but this only occurs after particularly difficult challenges which have taken a great deal of time to resolve.
Diana Kupke attempts to make the website as accessible as possible but realises she nevertheless fails in many areas in this regard. She also does her best to adhere to web standards.
The Diana Kupke website adheres to her own protocols whereby layout is common throughout the site and whereby navigation is transparent. Readers are never trapped on any particular page and neither are they trapped in a series of loops. Readers can move freely throughout the site using the top menu, the back/forward browser buttons, or through links on individual pages or through the links on the bottom navigation. Readers can leave the site at any time.
The navigation, which uses text throughout rather than images, aims to enable readers to be aware at all times of the page they are on, whereabouts on the site they are, and where they can go. Often additional navigation is provided at the base of a page when the page is one of a particular section.
Readers should use caution when they read such terms as left or right as these concepts were alien to me until a few years ago.
The size of the blog page is kept under control as older items are regularly archived. These archives are accessible through the menu, under Odd Bits.
