Max Scouter hmmmmm he got me angry Im still yet to forgive him for offending the developer in me. Im still to read the other blogs though. Nice stuff guys

  9. Bizsetup (always very useful and funny posts), 3-mob (which i don’t see on your list here), Zimbojam (sometimes), and techzim (always)…the most interesting and useful blogs in Zimbabwe by far.
