    Do you agree with the concept of a minimum wage?

    Given that there's no social welfare right? Otherwise you believe in Wages smaller than Social welfare grants. And most countries have social welfare.

    32 Inch Curved Monitor opinions

    I bought the AOC CQ32G2E mostly because it was at R7600 for a few days. It's not true HDR - I'm sure some other monitors have better colour reproduction. Other than that it's decent.

    32 Inch Curved Monitor opinions

    If you want to have more fun in FPS's, try to get a 144hz monitor and decide on the native resolution at which you'll get a decent framerate on. I'd rather run at 90fps+ / 1440p / 32", before switching to 4K. So even planning to upgrade to an RTX3080, I'll stick to my 1440p monitor and have a...

    Steak and egg not healthy?

    What about these 3 facts? Beef is mainly composed of saturated and monounsaturated fat, present in approximately equal amounts. Because saturated fat also increases high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, the total cholesterol (TC) to HDL cholesterol ratio (a risk marker for CVD) is not...

    Just know the Coolaroo shade cloth is incredibly durable and useful. I had a piece up to protect the sun side of a wendy house for 10 years - it still looks new.

    Who will service your vehicle?

    Dealer/mechanics are not always better - they don't care about longevity... overtightening / overfilling / inexperienced staff / mistakes / don't do ideal component/fluid replacement. Disagree that new is reliable - some engines are just way more unreliable. Jazz is at 175k km - simple engine...

    [Sale] Honda CBR 500R Cape Town

    Bump - price drop. Just to reiterate - bike in perfect condition. I buy my vehicles new with the aim to get 200k+ km without issues and expect this bike will do the same.

    My walls were roughcast.. the painter did the top 2 by rubbing some cement mixture (prob with permabond) and roughcasting a bit. Anyway on the right is 10y old (different colour, some parts look better than this), left is 1y.

    How to sell your vehicle privately. A step-by-step guide.

    Thanks, seems like a job for the wife. :) I just know that you can't actually enter the licensing dept without queuing outside for hours. Maybe will try to pop in at the end of the day. But you need the forms ahead of time cause the buyer has to sign.

    How to sell your vehicle privately. A step-by-step guide.

    Anyone know whether printed forms will be accepted, has anyone tried this ? Or anyone know whether forms can be picked up without going through the 5h queue at the vehicle registering authority ?

    [SALE] Lenovo L480 and L490 Ultrabooks

    That's a good price, so probably gone soon. I'm looking for a basic laptop for my wife but since I have not set up a meeting to get consensus it will happen later. :p

    Also also :( Ignoring a small attached piece, I have 6m long x 8.5 wide carport - only 2 supports on the front two corners. Issue is 6 huge laminated beams already costing R27k which need to be replaced... rotting at the front. Any tips to avoid what seems like a R50k rebuild? If I had the...

    Cape Town Online License renewal

    Mine get no response. I will pay someone to do them on my behalf now that I see I won't have it in time. Some guys advertise this service on Facebook etc.

    When your copper geyser goes - just check what it will be replaced with first. Hopefully you can get a better Tecron copper geyser from insurance at least. I doubt it will still last decades... I had mine start leaking in two properties when they were about 20 years old. Both failed with slow...
