    I am a new Vodacom Fibre user and have experienced about 4 significant outages this year since getting on the network, so much so that I have had to keep my Telkom LTE subscription for redundancy. In each case I visit the Vodacom website and can find no network status messages. I visit their...

    Bad news for SA’s slow Internet

    Thanks R4ziel and Backstreetboy - I have reduced my pings to EU by about 150ms and can actually download international podcasts again. Am using the Windscribe VPN on their Build Package which allows you to pay $2 per month for one location, and you only need the SA server to sort out slow Telkom...

    BF2142 is back online

    So a group of fans in the States have set up a Battlefield 2142 server including unlocks, leaderboard etc. The server is in Texas, and a New York server on its way. Ping from SA varies between 150 - 300+ (on Telkom ISP) but I am enjoying the gameplay regardless. You may not be able to beat the...

    FNB Talk - Say Nothing For Less

    Hi People. I have been using FNB Talk now since November 2010. Its very nicely priced (25c per min for all calls, pay as you go), but if less than 40% of your calls actually work then maybe their slogan should be "Say Nothing For Less" rather than "Say Hello for Less". How is everyone...

    Massive Sundog over Joburg

    There has been a massive Sundog over Joburg for the last hour or more. Its very rare to see a Sundog doing a full 360 degree halo around the sun. Anyone got a camera to post some pics? Don't forget to protect your eyes when looking near the sun.

    Unusual objects over Joburg

    At the time of posting if you look in the direction of the sun over Joburg you can see small flying objects high up in the sky, slightly reflective. They have been there since 1 pm or earlier. Some of them are flying at a lower altitude and they seem to be flapping. The closest ones I have seen...
