Imagine this... You are a Joomla community member not living in the USA. You want to show your Joomla love by purchasing and wearing a Joomla t-shirt... Two problems. Shipping and customs. Been there? Done that? Didn't get the t-shirt?
In the age of ‘always on’ connections, having a web presence is more important than ever.
