    My brother-in-law lost everything he had in a house fire in Overstrand. Pics of the left-overs can be seen at the bottom. Basically, they rented the place from his fiancee's uncle and was assured that household insurance was part of the rental, which it wasn't. They are not looking for...

    I used to do port forwarding all the time on ADSL and never had any issues as it's as simple as falling out of a tree. However, I am doing the exact same thing on fibre and it just isn't working as intended. I have disabled both my firewall and antivirus, still no go, restarted router, tried...

    Former employers refusing to give references

    So, say someone worked for a company (A), left them and are now looking to leave the next company (B) for another company (C). How entitled is A to refuse to give a reference at all to C? I guess there's nothing stopping them from refusing? Any ways to hold them accountable?

    Metrofibre: International Speeds - Is This Normal?

    So, I thought nothing of it, but thinking about it now, I don't know why this was the case. This is regarding 2005 Toyota Tazz XE. Wife phones me yesterday, she's trying to start the car, but it's completely dead, as in no noises, nothing, not even the spark sound it makes normally when it's...

    Fibre Optic Infrastructure in Centurion

    Really desperate for this! Not sure if this is the correct forum section. We are looking at moving our offices, but have no idea where in Centurion and which office blocks have fibre optic infrastructure, as this is the main reason we apparently need to move. So where can we find a map...

    SARS and Tax Returns - a few questions

    Let me be clear from the off: I am asking these questions because I'm confused with it, more than anything else, and I am filling out the forms as honestly as possible. So the part where you put the amount of medical expenses not claimed from medical aid is R3482. Medical aid contribution is...

I only use my work phone for calls, and my cellphone for mobile browsing and emergencies, adds up to R50 max a month, so the...
