Earlier this week the Wikimedia Foundation reached a significant new milestone: on Thursday, March 27, at 00:07 UTC the official article count for all Wikipedias combined reached 10 million. The ten millionth article, a short biography of 16th century English goldsmith and painter Nicholas Hilliard, was created in the Hungarian Wikipedia by user Pataki Márta.



Wikipedia now boasts articles in more than 250 languages, with the English Wikipedia having the largest number, followed in descending order by the German, French, Polish, Japanese, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese, Spanish, and Swedish Wikipedias. The project is also experiencing rapid growth in many young Wikipedias, including Marathi, Tagalog, and Cantonese.

Wow, ten million articles!

I do like Wikipedia, been using it alot. Very informative. Sure beats going
to the library for a quick fact-finding mission. (usually).

Love your posting style, Saad-Good brain, good attitude, good & brief!
(Brain like a sponge) me too!

Craig's List is a public 'classifieds', for jobs, housing, personals, & stuff for
sale, i read.

IPO stands for: Initial Public Offering; when a company decides to go
public, and offer stocks for sale. I heard Google was one of the hugest in
recent history!

Thanks, Saad, my good man!

YES- if you're wealthy, buy the really big stuff, computers, oil speculation,
pharmacy, auto, etc...

But if you ain't- there are "penny stocks"... one of my little brothers has
done quite well with those,,, plucking a few thousand off at a time, in just
a couple months!!!

But i'm just a worker drone, know NOTHING about the stock market...
except the movie: Wall Street, with Charlie Sheen, Michael Douglas, and
Darryl HHHhhhaaaanaahhh!
