    For me (on the highway) riding at high speed is meh, but it sure is fun getting to that speed quickly. I'll happily settle into a few km/h over the limit just to keep cars off my back

    What's the thoughts on the league so far? I won't be able to play until next weekend anyway but the trailer was really underwhelming to me

    The officers doing the licence tests are well aware that it is easier to pass on the 200-300cc bikes and are especially on the lookout for rented bikes (as they have been tuned to be nigh impossible to stall). They will be very strict on all items. It is way easier to just do it on your own bike...

    Avengers: Endgame [***SPOILERS***]

    I watched the movie for the first time last time and I really did not enjoy this movie half as much as most of the other Marvel movies I felt like it was 90 minutes of "these are the 5 steps of grieving" - Blackwidow in denial, Hawkeye angry, Thor depressed, Cap bargaining and Hulk/Iron Man in...

    Cities: Skylines

    You can make grids but then end them with an avenue that conforms to the lay of the land. It's also cool to make a central road in your grid that's got no zoning and replace it with lots of trees with pathways, parks, monuments etc. Or on the fringes of the high density grid have low density...

    SARS E-Filing 2019 OPEN!

    As a FYI - when you fill in the number for SARS to call you it must start with +27 so no calls to international numbers. I'll need to find a workaround to get the info I need

    Cities: Skylines

    Finally made it to 100k, the game has become really slow now. I also had to go find alternative train stations since I could fit 3 lines into the center of one of the towns. Overall pretty satisfied with how it turned out, I think I'll try my hand at another map and then leave the game for a bit...

    All three times I've fallen off was in sand where the bike (R1200GSA) was horizontal anyway due to it sinking into the sand :ROFL:

    The bike will almost always stall if you fall off, I don't know why there is this weird rush to shut off the engine. And if the off is so minor then a few seconds of idling is not the end of the world. Oil will tend to go towards the half of the boxer on the ground and that's it. Unless you...

    Thanks, but it's going to be a long road - I'm at 50k now but my poor old PC is crying. I think my almost 10 year old CPU is not so happy with me anymore :p

    Cities: Skylines

    Thread necro :p Decided to pick this up again for a bit. Going to try get a non grid city to 100k without traffic killing everything. There's 4 intersections that I need to redo though since I got overkeen with the amount of dense zoning and traffic flow is dropping to 75% :X3:

    SARS E-Filing 2019 OPEN!

    Is there anyone who knows how to complete the wizard if you've left the country during the period of assessment? I've moved to the Netherlands in October. So this means I pass the physical presence test for SA and should therefore be a tax resident for the whole tax year. So then I dont tick...

    I'm in the Netherlands with a 12ms ping and I also get these stupid lag spikes regularly. I think the game servers are quite simply stating to show the strain due to unoptimised code that comes with such regular and large updates to the game

    SA ranked world’s 8th-highest-taxed country

    Sweden ranks 8th for best education system... along with a bunch of other EU countries with free primary/secondary education, so free education can (and is in some places) pretty darn good. Tertiary is also quite cheap or free.

    SA ranked world’s 8th-highest-taxed country

    In SA my income tax was something like 30%. But then for a family of 4 I feel two vehicles are needed in SA, I need medical aid for emergencies, I need extra security in my home, I need to pay for a semi decent school. So that worked out to about an extra 15-20% that I need for an effective...

    One of those power bricks that can jump start cars is a big help in these situations. I've had one for a long time because when I was doing trips to the middle of nowhere and it's mighty useful (luckily I was never the one who needed it)

    AMD Ryzen 5 3600 review breaks cover early

    What do you guys reckon? I'm wanting an upgrade from an i5 2500k (which in all honestly is probably still doing just fine), do I go with a 3600 or 2600? It's a roughly 70% price difference where I am, so the answer seems obvious (to get the 2600). I'm gaming 99% of the time so I don't really...
