    F1 2024

    Lando was doing exceptionally well on the inters. He seems to lose some of the pace after swapping to the slicks. So a question from my side. Was the Mclaren fast on inters, or were the others slow on inters? But that was an actual thrilling race, for a change.

    GWM Ora review – This is the electric car South Africa needs

    Is this thing also subjected to the 30~ish % import duty? I'm sure I read somewhere that Chinese cars are exempt.

    First comes microseconds, then nanoseconds. I doubt the system they use can measure nanoseconds.

    Businesses dropping Eskom and switching to solar

    From what I understand, our site hits around 500kWp during the day, and 300kWp at night. So solar is oversized to carry load and charge battery, even when the weather isn't optimal. Battery is large enough to carry the load for a while, and if the outage is too long, we can always fall back on...

    How much does it cost to get a gun license

    My license was approved 7 March. Was at the DFO last week, and still no card. Luckily we have the printouts to fall back on. A couple of years ago we didn't have the option.

    The official running thread™

    I got the Venu 2 about R2k cheaper at the time. It does most of what I need it to do, it's only on the more "hardcore" fitness side that it is lacking. I'll have to re-evaluate my requirements in the coming months. Maybe a FR55, or 65 (if it releases) is on the cards. I'm not enough of a runner...

    Yeah, if I want that, it looks like I need to set up custom plans, and I don't have time for that.

    The Garmin plans are mostly based on tempo/cadence, and not heart rate. I've tried an unstructured zone 2 plan, but it didn't work for me. I need a structured plan that runs on my watch to guide me.
