Our research is also available through free and paid calculators and online courses. This revenue is used to cover the costs of hosting and managing the website in a non-profit manner.

We are community-driven, community-authored and community-managed! More than 100 readers have written articles on our site. Many of them wish to remain anonymous, and we respect it. Many community members anonymously help with the site’s management as a token of gratitude for its benefit.
