    Trillions of rand in Bitcoin locked away due to forgotten passwords

    No not at all because I would have probably dumped it on Mt.Gox who stole everyone's BTC. Could have razed a private army though. That would have been fun.

    Trillions of rand in Bitcoin locked away due to forgotten passwords

    I also had between 3000-7000 BTC somewhere on a 40Gb harddrive when I "mined" for "shits and giggles" in 2009. Didn't make much of it back then because it was worthless. I had 10000 at some stage, people were just mining it as a joke and sending it around to each other on IRC. Especially on...

We managed a couple of small wisps and bigger security firm's surveillance networks in Worcester, Tulbach and Ceres. a Couple of them we've grown from scratch with the owner.

    iSAT wants R21 billion damages payment from Dimension Data

    Nothing wrong running EOL open-source software, especially in the likes of openstack or ceph. If it works it works. You don't generally upgrade openstack for the sake of upgrading it even if you buy new hardware. These iSAT guys seem stupid. Haven't they ever heard of backups? Clearly if it...

    Naspers blocked from buying WeBuyCars

    Such good news!! I've spoken to a lot of 2nd hand dealers the last 1.5 years and they all brought up the topic how it will be their doom if Naspers owns WeBuyCars. Apparently WBC also contravene some or other dealer license. They cant be a wholesaler and dealer at the same time.

    Something odd is happening on Telkom's mobile network

    Telkom over MTN was a bliss. Now I can't even get signal at UCT on Telkom, keep on having to tell people to "whatsapp call me" over WiFi. I also constantly have to airplane and back my phone. I also think they do MAC based throttling. When I put an LTE simcard in a huawei router I get 50 Mbps...
