    WATCH: Woman screams as JMPD officers restrain her for blood alcohol test - but City of Joburg insists its 'legal'

    The police and equivalent forces of security within our communities should be given the benefit of the doubt in cases like these. I worked in private and public health for more years than I care to remember and I know how so many patients can put on a real 'show' for the injection or needle or...

    Courier Insurance for selling 2nd hand goods?

    Howdy kind folk. I have a lovely gift shop which sells, amongst other items, a lot of vintage and antique items- crystalware, bone-china, paintings, art-glass etc. I have been planning to add the next dimension to sales (to try to keep abreast of absurd mall lease payments) by selling online as...

    Evolutionary Fitness and Natural Selection

    I am not sure if you gentlemen grasp how slow natural selection is. We are talking millions of years for a subtle change that may or may not be beneficial. A polar bear and ice cap melting is, in the timeline of natural history and evolution, a blip in time that likely won't be noticed on a...

    Evolutionary Fitness and Natural Selection

    I would say that fit and unfit DNA are both removed and kept. The flow is dynamic. Some wins. Some losses. And often the balance is a bit in favour of the wins that are only an advantage for the particular environment of the species. Colder climate, slightly thicker coat or fat layer as a basic...

    Incest Family Discovered in Remote Australian Valley

    Intriguing stuff this. Whenever I am on a long rural road and I see hills behind hills behind hills stretching beyond the scope of transport systems and infrastructure, I wonder who is living in those hills and valleys. And who lives behind them. I recall a photographic book/album/collection...

    Speedpoint, POS etc for small retail business

    Ok, Let's hope it goes smoothly. Quick question: for a fixed/non-mobile speedpoint: does this connect to your landline provided by telkom? Telkom is another nightmare to setup. If not Telkom then how does it work? And does bank set this all up for you? And if not fixed, then the rechargable...

    Speedpoint, POS etc for small retail business

    gfmalan, Thanks for calling them and finding this out. Much appreciated. Pity that yoco has no thermal printer option and one has to do it through a linked/integrated pos to get a bank receipt. They need to sort that matter out. Otherwise I would have gone for their system. I downloaded a...

    Speedpoint, POS etc for small retail business

    Dude, Thank you so much for all the detailed and clear info. I got on the phone today to Xpressa- quoted me all the fees and variables immediately. I worry about support with them if they are a small company. What if my speedpoint stops working or declines purchase unnecessarily? Will it be...

    Speedpoint, POS etc for small retail business

    Thanks gfmalan, forgive me for sounding like a rookie here, but this is an area where i am with zero expertise. But when you say receipt printer... I am not sure what you mean. Let me elaborate on my confusion: A "big bank" speedpoint prints the receipt/bank proof only. A yoco emails it. An...

    Speedpoint, POS etc for small retail business

    Thx for responses fellas, much appreciated. Just as a side note: the gift shop will definitely have quite a lot of the old-school elderly folk that would not even have a phone with apps, let alone know what's potting with snapscan etc. But they will have their platinum credit cards (or, god...

    Speedpoint, POS etc for small retail business

    Hey all, I have recently purchased a longstanding and small, pretty successful retail shop (gifts etc) and I will be taking over in about 2 months. I do not have a lot of experience in setup and managing of speedpoint, POS systems. The existing ol chap does have a standalone speedpoint and...
