    IPv6 capable VPS providers in South Africa

    I just asked six different South African VPS providers if they could give me a server with an IPv6 address. All six said "no", they only do IPv4. Now I'm wondering if I have somehow teleported back to pre-2012... :( I'm sure some of the enterprise, private cloud-type providers can do this. But...

    Ask RSAWEB anything about the Cloud - Win great prizes

    How Vumacam’s CCTV system works

    There is a massive difference between taking a photograph in public and routine camera surveillance that records personal information. Just as there is a difference between routine safety monitoring in the public interest, and a private company monetising your personal information for profit...

    How Vumacam’s CCTV system works

    It isn't clear to me how a camera system owned by a private company and run for profit on a public road can ever be "POPI compliant" or what that even means. Let's start by being clear that camera footage is personal information. There's plenty of precedent for this: anything the camera records...
