Dear friends, we are back online!
A lot came together - we had to change the hosting provider for the web page during the summer, and it turned out that our site had been attacked. Fortunately this had no direct consequences for the visitors of our site, but we had to completely rebuild the site and will run it ourselves in future.
Please be aware that not all details have been restored yet - we are working on that.
We are also thankful for any suggestion or critique!
