    SARS - Unsolicited relevant material submitted?

    Hey, So first off I'm turnover tax registered and have been for quite a few years. End of last year I had a weird issue where SARS randomly sent one of my turnover tax forms back to me with the notice that they "only accept original documents" (it was). For reference sake, these forms are...

    ADSL continual disconnect -> connect loop.

    About 3 weeks ago our line developed a fault, the phone was very noisy for a few days and then went completely dead, no dialling tone nothing, ADSL continued to work but only synced at 1Mbps so was pretty slow (it's a 10Mbps line). It took a long time to get Telkom to come attend, but anyway...

    Where are all the small phones?

    So, my current phone (Meizu M2 Note) is nearly going on 3 1/2 years and lately been starting to give some issues (occasional reboots and lockups), so I'm starting to look for a replacement. The biggest annoyance/regret I've had about this phone is it's size, it's 5.5" so I figured I'd rather go...

    Just a bit of a rant, cos this is becoming ridiculous, where I stay in Theescombe, PE, we are constantly finding photographers coming with their clients and just merrily having photo shoots in our driveway. Like seriously who does this? :mad: This just happened again a few minutes ago...

    Anyone know of a place (in PE) that does video projector repairs? I have a BenQ MP610 which has developed a series of stark vertical lines making it more or less useless for movie watching (or anything else). :( I already took it apart to see if there was anything obviously broken, but no...

    Sars Efiling / Adobe Acrobat / Linux ??

    So I registered for efiling and now I discover that Sars uses PDF forms that can seemingly only be filled in with Adobe Acrobat Reader? :confused: Why would they use such a cumbersome and weird system? What on earth is wrong with HTML forms? And what about us Linux users? Sure Adobe has a...

    Hopefully one of the wuggers here can tell me who manages the wug irc server and how I can contact them? This morning when I tried to login I get the message that my IP is banned? :eek: I guess this is most likely because I use MTN HSDPA and they have some sort of shared IP thingy.. The...
