    Solar is the cheapest form of electricity generation to build

    How much area does a coal plant or nuclear take? Include the mines and transport required, and nuclear fall-out area lost risk, and coal pollution risk if you look at Eskom's failure. Also note those 120 km^2 is over a desert, that's not prime land, and it really isn't that large an area if you...

    These are the richest cities in South Africa

    I highly doubt that New York number since most left the city and I'd be unsure if they're heading back any time soon. Will be interesting how (/if) New York will recover.

    Mmusi Maimane | Open letter to white South Africans

    I fit in your example of youngest millennial cut-off. Both my parents are about to/are retired. Don't try red herrings like that, they just waste time and now we have multiple posts about how obtuse you're being (including mons).

    The 137TB man – South Africa’s biggest lockdown data hog

    Yes, but that cached content comes in once, then gets to everyone, it's not really an issue compared to people accessing streams that are not cach-ed/able. You're assuming again that the main cost is international transit, it's not, it doesn't have that much of an impact on the price compared to...

    Cape Town wants to increase the cost of liquor as part of stricter alcohol laws

    So what about those bypassing the tax? And how much must the tax increase by, who is going to do that research and will it be relevant in 5 years? What mechanisms can help deal with the problem if the root problem is systemic/economy? You just increased the tax on an item, so that entire...

    What MS Office do you use?

    Currently Office 365, but downloaded the suite. https://portal.office.com/account/?ref=MeControl Just hit the install office option. Currently using with both uni and work license (depending on machine). Otherwise I usually install Libre Office on machines, it's more than good enough for 99%...

    Should I learn MVC/Asp.Net?

    I think he made up his mind in the 5 months since the OP. :p My opinion, one of the best stacks you can learn right now is Vue 2/3 + ASP.NET or Golang. But learn concepts, not language.

    The 137TB man – South Africa’s biggest lockdown data hog

    So same as the other thread, you're picking out what you like and asking a question that's got an obvious answer (that guaranteed is always based on the server on the other end having the capacity and you'd add that in the T&C's, just that the ISP's end is not the bottleneck). Mind taking your...

    Cape Town wants to increase the cost of liquor as part of stricter alcohol laws

    I pointed out that it's not a solution. Solution: fix the economic situation, less people demotivated and resorting to alcohol.

    IT Graduate Salary

    Did Software, not IT, and did honors level equivalent before getting a job. Started at R32k CTC, and within a year went over R40k CTC monthly, about 50k CTC if bonus and time off included and averaged monthly for yearly. Tbh, after taxes, medical aid and retirement, this is not as much as you'd...

    The 137TB man – South Africa’s biggest lockdown data hog

    Your entire argument is missing the fact that the most expensive part of being an ISP is usually the local transit piece, then probably support, and then international. A lot of the traffic consumed is e.g. Steam, there's local caches for that, Netflix, local caches for that, YouTube, most...

    Cape Town wants to increase the cost of liquor as part of stricter alcohol laws

    You're missing that this tax doesn't do anything besides raise the price. Poorer alcoholics will still buy the cheapest they can to get drunk, drunk drivers will still get drunk, and I'm guessing a lot of shabeens will just ignore the tax by getting it off hte black market. That's without...

    SANDisk SSD - any good ?

    You can check the Smart stats on it to see if it considers itself to still be in good health. SSDs usually die gracefully, so easy enough to clone data onto another drive.

    Expect 26,000 daily COVID-19 cases by 30 June – Professor Alex van den Heever

    Nice interpretation there. You could give Lupus a run for his money.

    Expect 26,000 daily COVID-19 cases by 30 June – Professor Alex van den Heever

    Also stopped testing the general population, only if you're showing the accepted symptoms. It's supposed to be 1/10 have severe symptoms, so our current 2k daily confirmed cases is probably around the 20k mark.

    standby times for android phones

    With moderately heavy usage my 7 Plus is lasting two days. Standby time is supposedly 30 days, but longest I left on night stand is when I went camping for 4 days, so wifi on and getting messages from people, think went to 60% from high 90s. All depends on phone, what's installed and usage...
