LEGAL NOTICE (of some kind)

These charts are a copy of what used to be hosted on www.gecko-cam.com.
Many sources on the internet linked to it.
Since it is very useful I looked it up on http://web.archive.org

Im not sure why gecko-cam.com wont host it any longer, but since I used to
look at it all the time, I needed it back online somewhere.

So, if anyone asks: I did not come up with it, I simply copied it.

Be advised, that I do not guarantee that the information below is correct. I just believe it to be.

Also note that I am in no way connected to gecko-cam.com
