    Cape bikers say City traffic by-law amendment will outlaw lane sharing

    I'm apply the same logic you did. The reason you do the mirror kick is because you think you are going to get away with it. The same applies here. If I run you over and leave, in this country, nobody is going to find me. Ever. Watch yourself, this place is the wild west. People get shot...

    Cape bikers say City traffic by-law amendment will outlaw lane sharing

    What he said, if I lose my mirror, you are falling of your bike if I catch you. And by that I mean, I'm running into your bike so you fall off. The exact same way I watch out for busses and truck because I don't want to die, is the same way a motorcycle, bicycle and pedestrian should feel...

    D15 filters (made in SA)

    There is nothing magical about one mask over another. N95 can be re-used assuming you keep it clean. I use N95 (bought a lot long before Covid-19 because I do a lot of work that requires it) and with the crazy prices I reuse the same one for going out. Since I rarely go out, I just place it...

    Hosting with GPU's

    Every cloud provider does. Amazon's version is Elastic GPUs. You attach GPUs to your instance. Or alternatively launch an instance that has a directly attached GPU rather than remotely attached (limits the number of GPUs but depends what you need to do).

    Coronavirus: Donald Trump 'terminates' relationship with World Health Organisation

    Yep the problem here is not the US no longer funding the WHO. I couldn't care less. The problem here is the US not taking responsibility for themselves. Fighting a contagion is up to each country. The WHO can at best give guidelines. They also need to balance their reaction with data. For a...

    Coronavirus: Donald Trump 'terminates' relationship with World Health Organisation

    Sigh, I'm so tired of MyBB Americans. Don't you guys just want to move to America and go comment on some America First/Trump forums?

    Principal Engineer

    My company has Principle, Snr Principle etc. And they indeed do still do a lot of technical work. The reality is when you have a company with really good engineers, even after about 5 years experience they will be able to execute on a sufficiently well fleshed out problem. Moving up in a...

    China condemns US for blacklisting 33 of its firms

    Having an international currency controlled by any country is a mistake. The US already abused that ("quantitative easing" anyone?) but they'll hardly be unique in that regard. The euro is the better option given it is governed by multiple countries but still not ideal

    International shipping in lockdown

    Yep, noticed it also. Super annoying, and almost certainly because of the lockdown. I only buy items shipped & sold by Amazon or fulfilled by Amazon, so this put a damper on Amazon.com for me :( Sellers not using fulfilled by Amazon almost always have rip-off shipping prices (cheapest I could...

    Nvidia shield TV pro - where to buy??

    Got to be brave spending that much money on Gumtree. Also seriously overpriced considering the MSRP is $199. Yes I know it is out of stock at $199 but stock rolls in every now and then

    China condemns US for blacklisting 33 of its firms

    This is exactly why trump is doing this, it hurts the US that China is such a strong exporter. The EU is still the strongest economy in the world and although losing the US would suck for China, they'll continue on. What is likely to happen is that a parallel market will appear working through...

    Rules about cigarette sales and smoking during lockdown - Legal expert explains

    In my opinion, she has too much support for him to shoot her down. And in this case, she is probably got some kind of underhanded illicit dealings involved here. In which case, this is the best way for her to hang herself. Not only is her move not supported by the general voter, once the...

    Rules about cigarette sales and smoking during lockdown - Legal expert explains

    In my opinion this is almost certainly driven by some kind of kickback from the illicit tobacco trade. Zuma's new Gupta.

    Disk Cloning Software

    Haha fair enough I guess. I just hate that people have created over priced software to do what essentially a tool from the 80s did better.

    Disk Cloning Software

    Linux & dd is free and does a straight block copy. With an Ubuntu live-cd this should be pretty easy. You start the live-cd and open a terminal fdisk -l # List all the disks on the system # replace {old_disk} with the old disk & {new_disk} with the new disk designation dd if=/dev/{old_disk}...

    Boeing wants to borrow $10 billion to survive "crisis"

    Sigh, both sides get subsidies in all kinds of creative ways. I'm tired listening to the outrage of subsidies. It is non-sequitur for this current situation, it got to this point because of management decision in Boeing, not because of tax breaks received by either side.

    Boeing wants to borrow $10 billion to survive "crisis"

    The a320 NEO needed a way to make inroads in the US where the attitude of "made in USA" implied quality. Given that this is making that point, I fully expect that Boeing is going to struggle for a while. I wouldn't bet my $10B on them. America's penis size pride is tied to companies like...
