Until now, my Patreon account and my posts were only available in German, because Patreon itself does not allow multilingual pages, which already some users complained about. Therefore I decided to offer an extra Patreon page in English, because most people in the world don't speak German, but English :-) => Patreon.com

Everyone can choose a free financial support amount, or a Service Level. I have translated last week's posts to the new Patreon page. Normally I will post a few posts per day, or a post every 3-4 days.
