    Car key duplicate

    Any one know if you can get a car key cloned at a locksmith? I don't expect it to start the car, but at least I want to be able to the open the door or boot with it. Do locksmiths do this or will I look like an idiot if I ask?

    Learning Laravel this weekend

    Anyone doing Laravel? I'm going to building a little web app for fun this weekend to learn Laravel. I already know Django, Flask, Rails, NodeJS, React, NextJS, GatsbyJS, and 'vanilla' PHP, so thought Laravel might be a nice addition.

    ISP Logger

    Hey guys. Just thought I'd share a little side project I've been working on over the past few weeks. Basically an open source Docker script that performs a speed test every hour and then that data gets sent to my server. Would be cool to have some testers, before...

    Resident refusing contractor access to property

    About 30 houses in our block haven't been lit up yet as some person aren't allowing the Openserve contractors on their property because the pole is "obstructing" their sea view. What's the legal route Openserve / Rate Payers Association can go to get this sorted?

    What happens if an SA bank goes bust?

    Does SA banks have some sort of insurance? I've been googling, but no answers. In the UK for example, if a licensed bank goes bust, they have a compensation scheme that covers up to £85,000 per account. Just a random thought.

    Kitchen light - high pitch frequency noise

    Recently got solar + inverter installed. First night I noticed our kitchen light have this super high pitch noise coming from it, that's bound to give me a headache if I'm there for too long.

    Full stack frameworks in 2020

    With all the hype being around static frontend framework SPA's like React / Vue and separate backend API's (usually written in Node) these days, does it still make sense to build new web applications with traditional full stack frameworks like Django, Laravel & Rails? My 2cents: The last since...

    Which FNO's does GPON and who does Active Ethernet? I assume GPON is most common here, but are there actually areas that's got Active Ethernet in SA?
