Hi admin. This is not a correction, but better said addition. On your pop-up that open everytime with your page, http://visit.referralware.com/39/s39c291p27.jsp this one, there is a text:

Quote:
When asked how he became the world’s richest man, Bill Gates replied, “First, I was in the right place at the right time. Second, I saw the vision. Third, and most important, I took action.”


What about adding it as quote at your page? I think it is really good.

"I just thought maybe the moment has come just to say how it happened. Truthfully. And then I can at least go easy to my bed and think, well the truth's out there. And people can take it or leave it."
-- J.K. Rowling

This a quote i think you should add it was said by J.K. Rowling in an interview.

I looked into that Bill Gates quote and I'm having my doubts as to him ever saying it. It's all over the Internet as "When asked how he became the world’s richest man..." and on-and-on. It's looks made up.

"Well, when we got married in 1952, I told Susie I was going to be rich. That wasn't going to be because of any special virtues of mine or even because of hard work, but simply because I was born with the right skills in the right place at the right time."

That pop-up didn't come from our site - you might want to check your computer for spyware. There shouldn't be a pop-up when you visit here. (There might be a pop-UNDER, which shows under the current window.)

Don't trust quotes in ads, at any rate...
