    Need to upload 16TB to cloud storage for PhD. How?

    Thought about that, but unfortunately neither her nor I have the spare cash laying around for R7k worth of hard drives at the moment. Even secondhand we'd be looking at about R4k (and secondhand disks come with their own risks). If money wasn't an option, I'd have suggested she go this route.

    DialDirect Insurance now offering cash back every month?

    Hey all So, I got the email from Dial Direct today that one can get between 25% and 75% of your premium back per month. Like most things, this seems a little too good to be true. Link My car insurance premium is about R1,000 per month (and I'm not under 25, nor have I ever claimed, nor do...

    Hi folks! Anyone here know their way around developing for NopCommerce 3.50? I tried my hand at it, but I am a bit out of my depth with MVC and with NopCommerce's framework (I'm a Python guy :p). I've spent more time bashing my head against the wall these last two weeks than I care to admit...

    Which bank in SA is the best when it comes to technology/automating your finances?

    Hi folks! I've always been with ABSA (student account), but I think the time has come to make a switch (since they're forcing me to upgrade). Now, I have done my fair bit of reading (mostly on MyBB and MoneyWeb) about the banks here and their technology, customer satisfaction, fees, etc...
