Really Like Joomla

The more I use Joomla, the more I like. I am liking it so much in fact that I might switch The TechZone over to it.

To Get Rich Is Glorious

“To get rich is glorious” Those were the words China’s then leader, Deng Xiaoping (above), said nearly three decades ago. Deng is no longer leader but his words rang loud and clear. Today, China is getting rich. The country has over 300,000 citizens with net worth of over $1 million US, excluding property. And mainland millionaires control some $530 billion […]
