    MTN's 5G network tested – Blisteringly fast speeds

    Any reason why I shouldn't be worried about congestion down the line? 4G was also blisteringly fast on day 1, and now it's kak.

    The METAL Thread

    Have these been posted as yet? I'm glad Static-X is still going :)

    Star Citizen

    As pretty and large scale the game was scoped to be, by the time it launches I think it will look and play pretty average. Not even sure they're bringing RTX into it, which may be a standard thing by then. If only they developed the game in chunks, adding more areas to the story, more systems...

    Request : List of games which have South African servers

    I've been enjoying EFT lately and so happy we have local servers. :) Another one that might interest you guys is GTFO. Local host/lobby based, no need for servers.

    New coronavirus stats in South Africa possible bad news for the lockdown

    Ah yes good ol' John Ross College. Had my share of the experience :ROFL::ROFL: Jeeze, back then the only entertainment was the new boardwalk shopping center and that was it! Wonder what it's like nowadays.

    The 76TB man – South Africa’s biggest bandwidth hog in the lockdown

    I can't really think of many legal scenarios where that usage is plausible. Curious. I mean say if the power bill of a residential unit spikes tenfold inexplicably, of course you're going to be thinking meth lab or something :laugh: 2.5TB's a day? hmmm... Not even daily backups over a VPN will...

    Escape from Tarkov | Battlestate

    I play on a standard account. I just sell most things I loot. I consider the traders and flea market to be my stash at a premium :p Smaller stash doesn't bug me much, plus it can be upgraded in the hideout (though not easily, takes some work and progress). Smaller alpha container also doesn't...

    Escape from Tarkov | Battlestate

    Oh my bad, apparently its a fairly common rumor that was debunked. There's one former Stalker developer at Battlestate but that's it. source: I can only speculate that the rumor started due to the similar looking dilapidated Russian...

    Escape from Tarkov | Battlestate

    I believe it was inspired by Stalker, an old classic. There are various progression systems such as: - Light RPG elements - Player Hideout Upgrades - Quests - Trader leveling - Unlock areas via keys and other items located There's talk of a karma/reputation system and more gameplay elements in...

    Do you (still) go to the gym?

    I go to a private gym. They are taking precautions, being extra strict about watching that everyone washes hands when entering/exiting, cleans equipment etc... and they are keeping people up to date on the group chat. But I've only been once this week so far. Not sure if I will be stopping as a...

    Dimension Data absorbs Internet Solutions

    Shifting pawns around and a lot of marketing fluff. Ultimately these moves usually make forkall difference to the end product/service and how things are conducted in the trenches. If anything the disruptions and complexity just increase. Good luck :sneaky: Disclaimer: I'm just generally overly...

    Windows 10

    Yeah I think we tend to turn a blind eye for home use and very small businesses. Unfortunately in my line of work though, as a certified Microsoft partner who also does a fair bit of small business IT support, I have to be strict in all cases. Could lose my license and/or job so to speak :) So...

    Windows 10

    When moving to Windows 10 I will typically recommend an SSD first if the rest of the hardware is fine. A lot of people don't know this though, but the "free" Windows 10 upgrade that is often mentioned on tech blogs is also technically not free and is illegal to do - even if it activates. So one...

    Fixed-LTE router problems during load-shedding – What MTN says

    Bringing in a senior technician or engineer to spend hours/days to resolve an issue for a few customers isn't profitable. So until there are enough complaints to threaten their profitability they probably won't have a reason to care.

    Vodacom coronavirus lockdown

    Me? Yes, probably. I survived swine flu :) But I fear for others. Looks like this strain might be a little more dangerous for elders and so on.
