    Humanities students could lose out on government funding

    I did music up to Grade 4 when I was at School. So sorry I never carried on with it as I love all kinds of music including the classical music I played back then. It broadens the mind on a thinking level but can give you a lifetime of enjoyment too. If singling out humanities means curbing...

    New 12-core AMD Ryzen processor leaked

    Similar experience. My last Intel was a Pentium 2 350 Deschutes which I acquired in early 1988 or thereabouts which served for a few years until I went for AMD and am still there. My CPU is long in the tooth now and an upgrade means a whole new motherboard, ram etc. So will be nosing around...

    New 12-core AMD Ryzen processor leaked

    I doubt I will be playing much games, that being said I suppose when you upgrade you will be inclined to have a PC that can at least render a game modestly. My current PC still runs TF2 btw. :P Otherwise browsing, YouTube and work which involves MS Office programs.

    New 12-core AMD Ryzen processor leaked

    I may be a customer for a new AMD Chip soon with new motherboard. My old Venice 939 Athlon 64 CPU is getting a bit long in the tooth. Going strong since 2005. :P Any suggestions on board and cpu I can look at so long.

    Retirement Fund Advice

    Its got to a point with investments where its difficult to beat inflation due to costs and the market moving sideways or down across many counters. I have had a RA for years and the gains are paltry at best. My one friend who has similar investments has also complained about poor returns, in...

    "Zille violated Constitution", Public Protector

    MEANWHILE .... around 1 Trillion Rand has been siphoned out of State coffers since 2009 through corruption, mismanagement and downright thievery. And this is the news distraction of the day deflecting the real sh!et happening in South Africa today. Time for a new PP.

    ASSIA upped my ADSL2+ speed to 24959kbps.

    Last week SAIX's Noticeboard showed our Telkom Exchange was due for 24 hours of maintenance. I got 2 or 3 sms from Telkom between last week and this week and now it seems the line noise is gone, at least its not being identified by my ASUS DSL-AC52U Router, see attachment reflecting 10Mb ADSL...

    ASSIA upped my ADSL2+ speed to 24959kbps.

    Rounding off this topic before the year ends. So my connection went though several weeks of no real issues or resets but in the last week or so it has been unstable and 2 days ago it kept resetting randomly. So I called Telkom yesterday and have changed my 20Mb ADSL2+ to 10Mb ADSL2+ and one or...

    CNN sues President Trump and top White House aides for barring Jim Acosta

    The joke will be on CNN if the court finds against them, actually as a News Agency such a ruling might be the final nail in the coffin for them. In the mean time they have something to report about on their new channels, maybe their ratings even went up 0.1%. Trump decided to stand as POTUS, it...

    Rumble in the Urban Jungle: BLF's Mngxitama vs economist Dawie Roodt

    Lets hope those 5000 votes means they don't get into Parliament and helps dissolve the EFF by the same number making them lose a seat if possible.

    Rumble in the Urban Jungle: BLF's Mngxitama vs economist Dawie Roodt

    They could potentially take a few thousand votes away from the EFF as they share similar notions of grandeur. These guys belong in the 1950/60s of African politics when African countries were getting their Independence from their previous Colonial powers.

    Rumble in the Urban Jungle: BLF's Mngxitama vs economist Dawie Roodt

    BLF looking for a seat in Parliament. To think that the BLF by some accounts was a Bell Pottinger creation bought and paid for by the Gupta/Zuma alliance. The Guptas have fled the country, Bell Pottinger went into administration. While this Andile guy knows all that, his zombie minions didn't...
