    ‘Foreigners: Earn £31k or leave UK!’

    http://www.thesouthafrican.com/news/foreigners-earn-31k-or-leave-uk.htm Excellent idea. Then the locals won't have to compete with so much cheap labour from India, Africa and Poland.

    Anonymous Listens in to FBI Conference Call

    http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/news/2012/02/pokes.ars Fascinating to listen to the whole conversation. It appears that the Scotland Yard officer hasn't a clue even what Steam is, yet is investigating IT crimes and hacking!

    Bird flu empties South Africa's ostrich farms

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-16275280 I wasn't aware of the scale of this problem. It bothers me that I've just been eating this meat in various forms (& enjoyed most of it), yet the industry is in the midst of an Avian Flu health scare. How is it that the prices for Ostrich meat...

    WebAfrica modems are locked - Didn't know that was allowed!

    From the WA forum itself. They claim the ADSL modem is locked for "security reasons". To me it sounds like they don't want this guy to go to another ISP. If indeed, he paid R1500 for it, then surely it should not come locked in to the WA network? That's unethical to say the least.

    What's the Point of Twitter?

    I haven't used it for very long, but I fail to see the point of Twitter. It seems to be full of celebrities and high profile people telling us things about themselves. However they don't appear interested in what you think and certainly don't want to engage in any form of conversation. Ignoring...
