    Rain eSIM references in website code

    Someone somewhere doesn't understand what launches means... So they don't actually have eSIM support. What an idiotic announcement

    Experiences migrating Fibre to Afrihost

    Just to echo what is being said here. My parents got an account with them and basically, doesn't matter what you tell them, they can't help you. What is worse, is if you ask them to send someone they refuse. If you want your money back, they refuse, etc.. Long story short, just don't use Afrihost

    JUST IN | Grade 6 pupil shot dead at a Katlehong school

    In the US this would get you a death sentence, here I'd be surprised if they even catch the perps EDIT: Oh I misread this as 6 kids shot. It was 1 x grade 6 pupil

    2 x Widescreen monitors or 1 x Ultrawide monitor for developement

    My company gives us the option you have and some people chose 2xWidescreen. Everyone that did regretted it later and I don't see anyone with them anymore... We almost exclusively use Macbook Pros however, could factor into the decision, but there it is

    Floyd Shivambu's brother looted VBS Mutual Bank - Full List

    Why is it in Africa that once your "hero" gets caught red-handed the next step is a logical fallacy. Oh you've been caught. No but the evidence was fabricated, no but someone else did it too, no but why am I being investigated, etc. Who cares, not everyone that speeds gets caught. That...

    Fear, horror & outrage: SA unites in call for #SAShutDown 'Our country is bleeding'

    Being serious here but there is only 2 types of action that will solve this: - Providing more jobs so people don't have time for this kind of sh#t - Shooting/Tear gassing people that riot (rubber bullets are enough contrary to some of the hard liners beliefs)

    Two women stripped naked, set alight after missing boy's body found in river

    :ROFL: Typical Africa response. "Radical transformation". Just transform it back into "mob justice" :rolleyes: That worked so well for Africa before the evil settlers arrived. So much unimpeded progress was made, corruption did not exist, everyone was pure and all the evil in Africa were...

    Ideal Place To Build A Large Data Centre In SA

    Far as I know Amazon is building their data center in Cape Town which is an interesting break from the typical Jhb based data centers. Jhb isn't close to any undersea links, so likely that factors into it. Melkbos looks like it has cables running up both sides of Africa (granted SAT3 is old now).

    South Africa's rand currency 'rigged by banks'

    Serious question, would things like this happen if the country didn't have currency exchange controls.

    Love-struck Indian jailed for life over mock hijack

    If by romcom you mean something akin to "You" then sure. He not only wanted her to lose her job, he was happy to destroy anyone in his path to accomplish what he wanted regardless of the consequences to them. The guy is sociopath.

    How China has beat the US in the battle for rare earths

    Why is China the world leader in "rare earth minerals"? (pro tip: it isn't because they are rare) TL;DR they don't give 2 f#cks about the environmental damage they are causing by mining and refining elements that cause tons of radiation and pollution. But hey, we are doing so well with our coal...

    Huawei wants developers to publish on its app store

    App stores are the no1 reason people don't switch between iPhone and Android. Moving from one Android phone to another is seamless... If it makes use of Google services. When you buy Android you are definitely not buying it for the OS, you are buying it for the playstore & service...
