    3 big current News articles, yet no comments section...

    Well rested with 8 hours of sleep thanks. It's what they stated when they first started the forum back in the day and many people have commented on the same thing.

    3 big current News articles, yet no comments section...

    Just like many other things, MyBB started out as unbiased and ad free; 2 things they "promised" it would always be. Now we are plagued by advertising, bombarded with Multi Choice/DStv articles, pushed false narratives which are usually actually paid advertising articles and served up never...

    I signed a letter of Consent with my neighbour for relaxation of boundary rules

    What kind of a lunatic uses landfill to even out property. Sounds like you have a big problem about to start.

    Showmax clears the air on removing Leon Schuster movies

    What people who have a problem with this should do is organise a protest to cancel their subscriptions to show their support and highlight the ridiculousness of this occurring. My theory is that most people don't have an issue with Leon Schuster (or anything else that results from this BLM...

    Tax increases coming for South Africa

    Unfortunately they do not possess the intellectual capacity to understand that truth.

    Is this authentic or a scam...Looking for definite answer if possible

    You might be but many aren't, otherwise they would have moved on to the next scam.

    Sturks Tobacco Shop shuts doors after 226 years

    Honestly this is the first thing I thought when I read the title. Unless the shop has been breaking even for 226 years then they should have been stashing cash each month for rainy day. I guess profit margins are low though, especially after so long. Either way it's sad to see a dinosaur die.

    Computer Science - The best subject to study for a high starting salary in SA

    In my case I could see this when I went into uni. First year there were a ton of students that had no business being there and there were even 3rd year students asking us to help them pass their first year programming course. After first year you could pick 1 of 4 streams: software dev, web dev...

    Leases up for grabs — but black landlords only

    That is equality of outcome not equality of opportunity and that is not a good thing at all.

    BCX loses big court fight over Dis-Chem pharmacy software

    While I agree to never accepting contract work it's one of the last tools companies have left to get rid of useless employees that don't work or perform. Companies should be screening their potential employees better but that's a different conversation. I think I have heard of it being tested...

    Landlords, how did you start your property portfolio?

    * I've had one property which I have just sold because I no longer live in SA. * I've never used agents but working on software that they use and seeing their data they offer no value, especially for what they take * Like others have said, you need to look at it as a business and run it as such...

    Freelance programming - without portfolio

    Either build some demo stuff to showcase your array of skills and/or seek some people out and do your first project cheaper than usual. This is what I did many moons ago and with about 10 clients I managed to run a pretty nice sideline business for myself.

    Rand may be set for rebound - Bloomberg

    Would be nice if it did. Corona has knocked 20% off the value of my house sale because I have forex the proceeds :(

    Richard Pusey: Australian driver 'taunted dying police at crash scene'

    This happened like 2 weeks ago. It's confirmed that he is an ice (meth) user. He's also had plenty of run ins with the law before and I'd believe he is a sociopath. Plenty wrong with this guy. Sad that 4 good people died and this POS is still around. The guy that was driving the truck is an...

    Coding Interviews are Broken

    The most success I've had Coding interviews tend to be very unimaginative and because of that are usually all the same or even very similar. The coding tests I've done for them I put up on my Github then when they send me one of these things they get all surprised when I send them a github...

    Coding Interviews are Broken

    I love the whole open source statement because everyone says it but I've never contributed to a project in my life :D

    Should I learn MVC/Asp.Net?

    You'll find that knowing the MVC pattern itself is very useful. WebAPI in .Net implements a similar structure to ASP.Net MVC and many CMSes implement it as their underlying pattern. I've also implemented it many times myself as a pattern for rudimentary PHP CMSes for little side projects. Also...

    Why programming language C is increasing in popularity

    I've always done C# commercially and quite like it. I do agree with the java part and I'll tell you why. There are 2 things for me that make or break a language: the tools available and the cohesiveness of the language. Ever since being forced to do java in university it was very hard to find a...
