    How to cancel your Telkom ADSL

    I cancelled a few months ago and just got a bill with this "Notification Fee" on. Phoned billing department and they told me it is a credit (they owe me). They asked me to email banking details so that they could do a refund.

    Rebooted and then got message stating that my profile is invalid. I've been using the default profile for months now. Changed to APN and now it works! Speed is also better at 8Mbps download.

    Cell-C / IS "fixed" LTE

    Mine went down sometime in the last 3 hours... And this after struggling with 1-2 Mbps download since Sunday. Seems just as I get used to the service working as advertised, it breaks again.

    Why logging in as root is a bad idea

However, when I ssh into a machine, I normally want to do admin that requires root privileges, so I normally log in as my user and sudo su root, so that I don't have to sudo... the whole time.
