    Second hand EV prices plummeting in South Africa

    All affordable repairs - relative to the value of the car, person and situation, personally as someone who always buys 2nd hand I have NEVER had to do a radiator, head gaskets, water pumps before 250 000km and when I am buying a car of plus 200 000km I can factor that into my decision, combined...

    Second hand EV prices plummeting in South Africa

    And this is precisely the point people miss about 2nd hand EV's. Its not the 2nd buyer thats and issue its the third. Assuming people "normally" buy a car over 60 months then that 2016 Tesla 1st owner traded it in or sold it in 2021 to buy a new Tesla, she/he/they are all cool, being able to a...

    Webafrica's plans for recently acquired Mweb

    I suspect the plan was to combine all the truly terrible ISP's who are on the "well we always used XXXX", name brand recognition retention policy (as opposed to the good customer service generates business policy). I still remember the way my service dipped after Mweb bought Netactive in 1999 as...

    Cool Ideas Fibre ISP – Feedback Thread 6

    They really aren't doing it as "kind gesture" - they are changing the service they previously provided, quietly, without being open about it. Now you could argue, well there is a IPv4 shortage, then my simple answer is, why don't they run IPv6 already? Mostly because they haven't gotten around...

    Cool Ideas Fibre ISP – Feedback Thread 6

    Yes but I had to release and renew my PPPOE connection, this isn't an acceptable long term solution. Neither is quietly implementing CGNAT, which breaks so much stuff for power users, like the users who want an ISP who may charge more but doesn't just lump them into a massive CGNAT pool ala VOX...

    Cell C CEO's Vodacom hiring spree

    Well seeing as they have zero assets besides the spectrum they are trying to quietly quietly move to the holding company (I assume to then reauction off to the highest bidder to get out of debt when Blue Label declare Cell C bankrupt). I am little unsure what these new people are going to do...

    Scary SSH backdoor malware in Linux supply chain: How to find and fix it!

    And as someone who supports Windows machines, I get incredibly irritated when the headline is "Massive Windows Hack!!!" only to realise its related to Winzip installed on Windows 11 only. Same point.

    Scary SSH backdoor malware in Linux supply chain: How to find and fix it!

    As someone who actively supports 100s of Centos systems, its relevant to the fact that I got a few phone calls from worried clients that they were hacked, and while we do have a few systems on Debian and a few on Ubuntu. none of those are on testing. So yes I personally feel it when people...

    eSim Purchase

    Hi How does someone actually purchase an eSim only product from afrihost. Want to test it as alternative data on a S23, but going through the ordering process it wants me to take delivery of a physical sim card. Searching esim afrihost just takes me to the start of the same process. Doesn't...

    Gauteng finance MEC says e-tolls will end 14 days after deregulation notice

    I assume u mean using them for speed cameras. There is a process for that, and if memory serves SABS or National Metrology Agency determined that the existing cameras weren't able to be calibrated to speed enforcement, so it would require a major upgrade to use it for that purpose, and it would...

    Does Nkosana Makate deserve R29-billion?

    Yes right. I too don't like arguments when they aren't my point of view. Again how could a lay person determine a directors mandate, especially if they lie? Do you expect all businesses to run around asking for articles of incorporation and all board meeting minutes to date? Or are you saying...
