    No more dessert-themed names for Android

    Google knows their international userbase isn't too stupid to recognise an American sweet. They're just sick of the hassle involved, especially when it's a trademark like KitKat or Oreo.

    Afrihost - Pure Fibre Feedback Thread

    Just installed PingPlotter. Looks even worse when visualised their way: Nope. Had to just give up after a few attempts. And can't upload now as it's still rekt.

    Afrihost - Pure Fibre Feedback Thread

    I'm getting <2Mbps to OneDrive for some reason. Speed tests and general performance is otherwise good. This is disappointing considering some recent uploads went at a rock solid 100Mbps without dipping at all, for the first time ever. The OneDrive web app is at WinMTR to that...

    The end of medical aid as you know it in South Africa

    If you take drug development out of private hands, then there won't be drug development. The kind of funds required to aimlessly invest in that level of research, across the entire spectrum of medicine, is an interstellar distance beyond South Africa's budget. And indeed most countries' budgets...

    YouTube Premium launched in South Africa

    Why does payfast allow any merchant to sell?

    My PayFast merchant account required all the usual documents to setup. Director ID, account holder ID, company registration, proof of address, proof of bank account etc. PayFast should be able to provide the identity of any scammers if you involve the courts. It's certainly troubling though...

    Speed tests are enormously useful as a basic indicator of connection issues. - Takes ages to load or commence: problem - Latency is higher than normal: problem - Download/upload speeds are lower than normal: problem - Test progress curve fluctuates wildly: problem - International test servers...
