    Telkom LIT Android media box - Tips/Tricks/Apps thread

    Lol it's a sign. I just lost my LIT box's remote and have been struggling using the Android TV app from Google to control it. This frustrates the heck out of me, because a couple years ago I got that custom Roku box from a local content provider, and when their deal with Roku expired soon...

    Absa recommends blockchain-based digital ID system

    This really is inevitable. Carrying around ID cards and traffic licence cards etc is a joke. Bring on our digital future

    EXPERIENCE: I took a Greyhound bus and survived

    Are they really? I'm not a bus nerd so I wouldn't know. But I took the Intercape Sleep Liner many years ago ... and I don't recall it being exactly the same as the Greyhound Dream Liner. *shrugs* Then again memory ain't what it used to be.

    EXPERIENCE: I took a Greyhound bus and survived

    Well I think the Intercape Sleep Liner is still running, so it's basically the same sort of experience. I think Greyhound's was a bit more spacious though.

    EXPERIENCE: I took a Greyhound bus and survived

    LOL, you wanted them to charge you more so you could feel good about it? *shrugs* I never noticed any maintenance issues with the important parts of the bus (e.g. worn tyres or squeeky brakes). Sure there were no niceties like onboard catering, and the USB ports in the seat invariably never...

    EXPERIENCE: I took a Greyhound bus and survived

    *smiles* To me, yes. Not so much because of the service, but because of what it enabled: me to travel from here to THERE, to her ... more regularly than I could have afforded to fly. For that reason, it was priceless for me. Trying to sleep with noise cancelling headphones, blocking out the blue...

    Telkom cuts price of 1GB bundle, launches new 1.5GB bundle

    Vodacom gave me a 5GB recurring data bundle for a ridiculously good rate (I won't share it exactly because then they'll cancel it lol - but it's close to your deal), and it delivers a little bit better than Cell C: https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/7694490315

    Windows 11 rollout begins on 5 October

    I wonder if Microsoft will relax the TPM 2.0 requirement when it goes public to the older systems ... sure they won't get the specific security that enables, but all the visual treats could still be offered.

    If you want Windows 11, you'll need a newer PC or laptop

    Ok, so based on what I've found, and I might be entirely wrong, it seems my mobo doesn't support that at allllll. This is my mobo specs: https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/Z170A-GAMING-PRO/Specification That shows I have this chipset (which is listed as a Intel '100 series' chipset lol)...

    Winners - Stand a chance to win your share of R2,000 with McDonald's!

    Oh my young padiwan, you have so much to learn about the ways of McDonalds. Here's a free lesson I learned the hard way: don't order their donuts from the coffee bar. Nobody ever orders them, except I did once ... and I almost died. I don't know how old that thing was, but I learned my lesson...

    @3WA @joshuatree When you go to McDonalds, just get the Chilli Cheese Fries. Nothing else matters :P You're welcome. That priceless knowledge is your second prize.

    Which handgun do you recommend for EDC?

    I'm not sure if this is a humblebrag or not, rofl. "I hate Ferrari maintenance costs! I have ten."

    If you want Windows 11, you'll need a newer PC or laptop

    I wouldn't even know where to look for that. I've got an MSI Gaming X (iirc) mobo ... is there some spec website that I can plug a model number into, or must I look at the board for something?
