    "Pedo guy" is a common South African insult - Elon Musk

    Was frequently used on ZAnet, Shadowfire and Blabbernet. In the IRC days. You guys that deny it was probably never tech savvy back then.

    When Telkom switches off your ADSL, this is what you can expect

    How is ADSL legacy? I was In USA couple of months ago and it was their only type of connection for the most of the state. 60Mbps ADSL. The one day there was an issue and I called them up, they send out a tech in 30mins to come and fix the line.

    They Are Billions - Review

    This game and frostpunk makes me feel like i just had a super hard day at work and need to go exercise or get out of the house. All worked up. I never had any freezes like you're talking about and I'm way past 100h. Enjoyable game but can be extremely frustrating and a waste of time. Build...

    Absurd cPanel license price increase

    Cpanel is crap anyway and this is 2019 and not 2009, meaning way better alternatives. I moved from using Cpanel for my clients to webmin+virtualmin ages ago.

    South Africa's hosting providers compared

    I use Azure for IaaS and other services. For good old baremetal, SoYouStart (SYS) which is a mid range OVH product. Or Kimsufi which is an entry level product - dedicated servers from $4 . SYS $50 for 8core xeon, 32GB ram and 3x120GB SSD + DDoS and static ips. ZA hosting is a ripoff.

    DSTV Now - Buffering

    It is only sometimes and then it is for 4-8hour segments. Changing ISPs shouldn't be a solution. I'm with MacroLAN-Seacom for fibre

    Brand SA paid over R97,000 per month for web hosting which really cost R2,495 – CEO

    You can get a dedicated physical tin (cpu, memory, ssd/hdd), anti-DDoS Traffic, unlimited traffic, backups for like $5pm with kimsufi (part of OVH)

    DSTV Now - Buffering

    100/100 Mbps fibre here - having the same issue from DSTVapp on TV (TV is network connected). My mikrotik router doesn't even show 1mbps traffic from the TV. The program will start playing in low quality and the moment it readjust the resolution to something higher a few seconds later it freezes...

    Watch out for Procall debit order fraud

    You guys missing the point. Friend of mine had this same issue on Standard Bank and they told him they can't help. The only solution they gave him was to close his account, open a new one and change Everything over. (time consuming). Standard bank even charged him to reactivate overdraft on his...

    Web Squad ISP

    These speedtests means nothing: why? 1) all ISPs shape their traffic to give ookla best QoS 2) all tests should be at the same time, preferably at night when US is actually awake and everyone from GMT to GMT+5 is at home. Posting speedtests from 7am means nothing. Websquad is one of the only...
