    Is CCA cable "Solid"?

    A supplier is selling me a box of "Solid" cat cable. When I double checked with them on if it was solid, and not CCA lan cable, they replied, stating that it was not pure copper. Am I under the wrong impression that unless it is specifically sold as CCA, all solid cables are supposed to be...

    Jive: Another sugar tax "victim"

    Anyone notice the incognito change in the sugar levels in Jive? I could not understand why my cooldrink tasted funny after not drinking any for quite some time. Turned the bottle - shock horror - only 4% sugar + aspartame. They changed it without dropping the price and without doing the right...

    Frogfoot FTTH install

    Right, so we are busy prepping for a frogfoot install and would like to avoid surprises and are pre-planning where we would like the fibre to run. Are installers allowed to use existing telkom ducting from the curb to enter the erf and premises? If not, would they use ducting that we lay...

    Anyone on VOX willing to do a quick ping for me?

    As per the title, if you have a minute to spare, please drop a message or send me a quick PM. I suspect there is something wrong with VOX's DNS cache (specifically sparrow cache) and need someone to do a quick ping for me to verify. Thx!

    Comparing Fibre ISP Pricing (on Frogfoot)

    I have noticed that the packages listed on the frogfoot packages portal ain't exactly what I would call accurate. Some of the pricing is wrong, some of the terms are wrong, some of the packages don't even exist on the ISP's website etc etc. Looking then at the slew of fibre isp comparing sites...

    Serv Hosting / Serve Hosting / Web Africa / No Loyalty (Price increases/Discontinuation of products?)

    Did anyone get a notice of any price increases or discontinuing of packages at 1-grid? My 'Linux Hosting X Small' package went from R19 odd, to R29 sometime in 2018 and today I see my July invoice is R49. According to support these Xtra small packages were discontinued about 3 months ago?

    Managing/Recording CPD hours

    So over the weekend I sorted out a friend's computer, again - seems like a faulty SATA cable I missed the previous time was the root cause of all his random issues all along, but I digress. He asked me about this previously and to date I do not have a clear-cut or easy answer for him: He...

    ""15GB/day"" @ R199/month Offer (telemarketing fail)

    So our existing cellc contract is coming to an end and the retentions department phoned us on Friday to offer us a 15GB/month package for the same price. Since the expiring contract was being used by the parentals the idea was to get them a slightly bigger package. But the MTN/Vodacom offer was...

    Manipulating CSV data

    Our business software kicks out .CSV data that we (read: I) then manually manipulate and prime in the format that can be imported into our accounting software. This is repetitive work and I would like to find out if there is a better way of doing this, short of making an autohotkey/macro script...

    Powerline with Neighbour

    Looking to share my internet with the parentals next door, but due to the positioning of the telkom cable and the accompanying wifi router, the wifi barely covers one room next door. A repeater/WDS will end up repeating the weak 1 bar signal and is not the route I would like to go. Simply lying...

    What accounts do you pay at PnP?

    I have some credit at PnP that I want to "get out of the system", so: What accounts do you pay at PnP using eg. @pay or EasyPay or whatnot? In the past this was easy via Reload/Drawcard using @pay, but Reload (Mobile Money) does not exist anymore. :cry: List: Telkom Landline Pathcare DSTV...
