This website is not under construction.  It is so ancient that it doesn't even serve cookies or ads.  No 25-year itch for “classic” to “new” revamp here!  It has been more or less like this since 1995 when I started it to offer my radiative transfer course notes - which did not change much either.  Subtract What's past? from What's new? for the evolution.

Verantwoording:  ik jatte "webstek" niet van onnavolgbare Interim Dichter des Vaderlands Simon Vinkenoog (1928-2009) maar van onnavolgbare collega-sterrenkundige Vincent Icke.  However, address robrutten.nl follows Vinkenoog.
