    I went to the Police Station to do it yesterday and was informed that it would take 4 months. I want to apply for an opportunity which closes in early November.

    What is the best and cost effective portable internet option?

    I live between two places, one has internet and the other does not. Looking for a good portable option. Currently, I am working with the 200gb one off 365 day data package offered by Cell C but I will consider something else if better. The only issue with this package is that I can only really...

    Will replacing the hard drive on a PC that is over 10-years make it usable

    I have a couple of PC's at home. I prefer to use my own PC at work rather than use the company desktop. I might be walking to work soon and so might look into leaving my PC at home. We have a couple of older models which are over ten years at home. They eventually got to a stage where they...

    Need a lift over a short distance in Durban central everyday, can anyone help?

    I am planning to move into a flat near North Beach soon and need a lift from there to near the Greyville Racecourse. I have been trying to find a good public transport route but none seem to stop nearby. I know the People Mover which is cheap stops about 1.7 km from Greyville and while it is...

    Is there much hope for my laptop?

    My HP laptop just gave in yesterday (it is about 14 months old). It randomly shut down and never turned on again. When I tried switching it on, it would make a clicking sound (as if being forcibly turned off with the power button) about two or three times and then stay on but not respond to any...

    Why are the far-left so frustrated with Trevor Noah over his Malema comments?

    I am fairly left-wing myself and often disagree with others on issues. I have been accused of being an "SJW" in the past. This time though, I think they are going overboard. Malema does say and do stupid things and he should not be immune to jokes...

    Has anyone ever met Julius Malema, what is he like in person?

    He is obviously very radical when talking on political platforms but a lot of politicians are actually totally different when speaking on political platforms as compared to what they are in real life. I had the opportunity to meet a few politicians from the DA and ANC and even though they may...

    Is IsiZulu an easy language to learn, does anyone have any tips?

    I only did Afrikaans in School because I could get help with homework as my parents learnt the language. I kind of regret not doing IsiZulu and feel that its important that I do so as I grew up in KZN. I do know the basic greetings. Does know of any good tips or courses which I could use to be...

    Why do people naturally love to make themselves victim?

    On the ground, I have interacted with people of different racial groups and religions throughout the world. Off course, there are many people who understand the complexities of society and the world at large but it seems like the majority of people seem to think that their religion/race...

    Recorded interview with CallX recording app but can't hear person I phoned clearly, is there anyway I can fix this?

    I did an interview today on my mobile device and used the CallX recording app. I write pretty slowly so I felt it would be better to use a recording app. However, after playing back the audio, I cannot hear the guy I spoke to, I can barely hear low mumbling. Is there anyway in which I can fix...

    Why has the DA been attacking smaller parties recently?

    During recent weeks, I have seen the DA attack smaller political parties saying that "a vote for them is a waste" and I have also seen DA aligned people on social media taking swipes at these parties, notably the FF+. I'm not even a DA fan but in my opinion, this is just poor strategy, if the...

    Do people who viewed your Facebook profile appear as "people you may know"?

    I am just curious about this. There have been a few times when people I met suddenly appeared as "people you may know" a few days later. I am also starting a new job soon an saw today that a guy from the company I will work at appeared as "people you may know". Not sure if these are just...

    Do you think its possible that a future super-civilization could bring people from past generations back to life?

    I want to believe in an afterlife but am finding it hard to do so- it just does not seem rationally possible. We are after all a collection of atoms and it does not really seem like our consciousness can continue once those atoms separate- though the atoms will develop into something else...

    Why is my Nikon D5300 taking blurry photo's all of a sudden?

    I don't know what it is up with my Nikon D3500 all of a sudden. It is shooting worse images than my 12mp cellphone over the past two days and seems to have off-colored images. I tried resetting to factory settings by pressing info and menu at the same time and that did not work. The only...

    Do you think things in SA would significantly change if the DA came into power?

    I have never been a fan of the DA, if anything a lot of their campaign tactics just come across as overly desperate to me and many of their die-hards seem to get but-hurt and emotional as well whenever criticisms are made at the party, I work in the media and have dealt with a number of their...

    Do you think Michael Jackson was guilty of sexual abuse against children

    Following the Leaving Neverland documentary recently, I see two sides, one which claims that Jackson was guilty based on the number of children that have come out and the evidence against him, his pornography collection, sleeping in the same bed as the boys etc. On the other hand, you have his...

    Update on my work situation

    I am writing this because I have seen a number of members on this forum take indirect swipes at me when I post :) I am still with the company. I do admit that I have anxiety issues and sometimes stress over issues which are fairly small. It is something that I do need to manage. I still do...

    How do I deal with this situation? Advice appreciated?

    Ok, I got an interview with a company who will likely offer me more than 2x what I currently earn next week during working hours. This means that I need to take off from work. I tried my best to negotiate for a Skype or after hours interview but this particular company does not offer that. How...
