    Is this panel beater taking me for a ride?

    I reversed into a pole with my Toyota Yaris (not the saloon) and there's a slight dent on the rear side panel above the tail lights that looks like it could easily be popped out. The paint has been scratched off a bit but nothing hectic. I received a quote for R1,500 which seems mighty steep...

    Twitter representation

    Just a heads up to VD, there seems to be a lot of one-way communication going on, on Twitter and Vodacom doesn't seem to be replying on that channel. Just check out @RubyGold's (Editor for Times Live) account for a taste of the action. ;)

    Quick question

    Why, when people use the past tense of LOL, do they say LOL'd? What is: "Laugh out louded"? Should it not be L'dOL? Just asking... :whistle:

    MotoGP in Pretoria

    As you might know, the 2010 season kicks off in Qatar this Sunday. I don't have DSTV so watching at home is not an option. Does anyone know of any bars, restaurants or pubs in Pretoria that are showing it? I heard that there's a place in Menlo Park that shows the F1 but not sure if they...

    Nokia 5800 not picking up 3G

    I had my 5800 musicXpress sent into Midrand Vodacare for a high-level repair. I get it back and now I have lost my HSDPA connectivity. It's horrible being stuck on EDGE. Is there any way to install HSPDA settings without handing my phone in again? Edit: Nevermind, the OP is an idiot...

    Start-up funding

    There seems to be a limited field of options for people in SA that are seeking VC funding. Other than getting a business loan from a bank, what other options does one have? Except for Enablis and Raizcorp (for which you need to be operating for 6 months), every other venture capital and...

    Modern Warfare 2 Presitge edition

    I was at the CNA in Menlyn the other day and saw the prestige edition of Xbox IIRC, which is about 2k and comes with what looks like NV goggles. Surely those can't be real! Don't those usual retail for about 5k+?

    Firefox bookmarklet plugin

    Back in version 1 or 2 I had neat plug-in that showed the bookmarks as their favicons but excluded the text. It made things compact. When I upgraded it disappeared. Does anyone have a link for v3.5.3? Thanks

    Broadband bible launched

    It looks like there's a new website that was launched recently, going by the name The Broadband Bible. Here's a description from their about page: Link: I wonder if it will go mainstream or if it'll only be used by geeks, nerds, and those that jump ship when...

    MBTI manuals

    Ahoy. Following this thread about Myers-Briggs type indicators it would be interesting to learn more about the 16 various personality types. I'm too lazy to do an in-depth search for ebooks and manuals as I'm not bothered to sift through the self-promoted crap on a Sunday afternoon, but if...

    And another thing...

    I heard the other day that there's a sixth part to the Hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy series, but with a different author. Hopefully it'll be as good. :D

    Thread closure prediction thread.

    This is the place to make your bets and put those predictions on paper. Retrospectively, I was right about the domestic worker thread coming to a close. What's next?

    Which forums are you a member of?

    Just wondering... I think I'm still registered on Vault 9 forums... But it's mainly just this one. If I needed to, I'd join esato because that is by far the best SE community.

    Question about short codes

    I'll play layman here, so I'll appreciate it if somebody could answer this for me. Let's assume that I am company XYZ. I've got a campaign going and I hire a WASP to run a competition on my behalf. It'll be something stupid like send the answer to a ridiculous question to 3xxxx or whatever...

    The price of wealth

    Holy cow. I was going through WBS's various courses. The new one, master of management in the field of entrepreneurship and new venture creation is a 14 month course. I imagine it would be similar to an MBA. Anyway, the point is that it costs R73,100! :eek: That's... quite insane. \starts saving

    I'm not sure how many of you have heard, but this Monday (16 November), the Wits Business School launched the South African Start Up index (SASI). This looks like a great initiative. Hopefully there will be many additions to the index. (Sorry, no link due to being capped. Google is your...
