    Loud Fans - MSI Coreliquid Cooler

    Who is excited? AMD announces AMD Radeon RX 6500 XT and Radeon RX 6400

    Your Raspberry Pi Projects

    I've bought a few PI Zero 2's from Pishop last year and still waiting. I've since ordered a few from Robotics org who are 'grey' importing and used them in the projects. ICASA is a PITA.

    MTN Fixed LTE - Internet always cutting off

    Dof question but: Did you configure the new router with the correct APN settings before putting in the sim card? I am using my afrihost router with my MTN sim card without issue, but you do need to configure the correct APN.

    Updated Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 announcement today - report

    Wake me up when we have a budget card that can compete with a R1,999 RX570 4GB card from 2017. 3080 12G is great and all.. but why? Miners are just getting them, driving the costs up. etc.
