How about TWiki?

Great list of wikis here. I think everybody should have their own wiki.

While I do not use it myselv, I'm really impressed by Foswiki

Great list of wikis. Didn't even now about GBIF. Thanks for sharing.

My favorite open source wiki is Foswiki (fork of TWiki). The best wiki in the commercial area is Confluence. :-)

[b]Bill Bartmann, Author of “Bailout Riches!” tells How to Make a Fortune Buying Bad Loans[/b]

Learn how America’s financial crisis becomes an investment opportunity to buy outstanding debts for pennies on the dollar

Tulsa, OK – How does America’s financial crisis become an investment opportunity? Bill Bartmann, author of the book, Bailout Riches!, explains, “It begins with over $1 trillion dollars in defaulted mortgages, credit card debt and other bad loans being written off and sold to investors for pennies on the dollar.”

Bill Bartmann’s book provides investors with the right roadmap to spectacular profits with a step by step plan to find deals from the federal government, local financial institutions and loan brokers. The defaulted loans include credit card debt, consumer loans, business loans, commercial loans and real estate loans and mortgages. “It gets better,” said Bartmann. “The book provides a proven system for buying debt without using your own money.”

Bailout Riches! shows how to invest in the bailout and take your own cut of the trillion dollar pie. Bill Bartmann is an authority on the subject; during the last big-time government bailout Bartmann built his own debt collection company and became a billionaire. “Today’s bailout is much bigger and opportunities for profit are much greater,” said Bartmann.

When asked why he would share this valuable information with the world, Bill Bartmann answered, “The reason is simple; there’s plenty to go around. In the next year or two around $1 trillion of debt will be written down and sold cheap.”

Bill Bartmann is the author of Bailout Riches! and the creator of America’s largest debt-buying and debt-collection company. Bill Bartmann has been listed among Forbes Magazine’s 400 wealthiest Americans and has twice been named National Entrepreneur of the Year by USA Today, NASDAQ, Inc Magazine, Ernst & Young and the Kauffman Foundation.

Maybe not TOP10 wiki for general use, but best minimalist wiki is LionWiki (http://lionwiki.0o.cz). It's dead simple, *whole* installation process consists of copying *one* file to FTP and creating directory!


Credit card debt is a major problem in this country. Everyone has a credit

referred to as debt consolidation because it involves consolidating all your

arrangements with all your creditors, so that you have less money to find
each month. You then make a fixed payment to the debt company every month
until the date at which you become debt free again. As well as having the
