    One quick suggestion though. Have you tried using the “read more” function on wordpress so that your home page is not too long. I see you put in the entire code/laws. It might make your site faster too :)

  19. Thanks for the visit, web buddy! I’ve been looking for your name in the list (you know what i mean) but the bad me couldn’t recall your real name. Hope to see you on the 14th of April at the PICC! Indeed, good luck to us.

    • hi… is the news april 14th at PICC reliable? tnx

      • I apologize if i seem to have been spreading unverified information. I just got it from some trusted people. My fault is that i failed to take caution and posted it immediately. Nevertheless, should either the results be out on the 11th or 15th, or the oath-taking be on the 14th of April or any other day, one thing is sure, both will certainly happen, and that both the examinees and their loved ones are eager for the results.
