    Kombucha Brewing

    Collected my stc 1000 today... the fridge has been certified dead, so I'm going to use this as my "pilot" - heat only, and if it doesn't work out, I'll source a scratch & dent. Need to decide where to place the fans still, but its coming together... I'm going to wire the stc 1000 temp sensor at...

    Kombucha Brewing

    I have the glass shelves, but I'll got some off cuts of plywood I might try. Out of curiosity - does your fridge cool? I've seen some people talk about using a peltier, although apparently not very efficient. Just thinking if I want to expand my horizons in the future.

    Kombucha Brewing

    My neighbor gave me an old fridge. Doesn't work, don't think I will need much cooling as I would heating. Now to get some PC fans and an stc... the stc will live in the freezer compartment

    Kombucha Brewing

    Very nice! I am now looking for an old fridge. Do you still cover your kombucha if it's inside the fridge?

    Kombucha Brewing

    The struggle is real. I've already been given the green light to purchase a small fridge because my beers and kombucha are taking up too much space :ROFL:

    Kombucha Brewing

    Is there enough airflow for kombucha? An old fridge that has been modified? Do you perhaps have a pic you could share?

    Kombucha Brewing

    Thanks for the suggestion. I may just get one... works out cheaper than a diy solution. I first need to find a suitable cabinet for brewing kombucha. With the current config of having kombucha on the counter wrapped with the heat mat, the only way to accurately tell the temp would be...

    Kombucha Brewing

    I found my house is far too cold in winter. I'm using a seedling heat mat which seems to work pretty well and speed things up considerably... On warmer days I need to turn it off... Perhaps a good hobby project for an Arduino, Relay and Temp sensor. I'm aiming for > 20° C, and < 30° C. 3 - 4...

    Telkom Fibre High latency at night

    This issue is consistent on LTE as well - likely network congestion. Usually between 19:00 and 00:00. I've got a few smokeping probes which show that the issue is Telkom network related. I have opened a case with Telkom, and shared these with them. The challenge is getting this to the right...

    The official supersonic R999 Uncapped feedback!

    I downgraded to 30/30gb to use the account as a backup, but at this point, I'll need a backup to backup the backup. o_O Local traffic peaking at 100/120ms - without focusing on the packet loss... This is to 8.8.8.8 ^ I'll cancel this and try Afrihost/Vox. Just want to get my hands on some...

    The official supersonic R999 Uncapped feedback!

    For SuperSonic LTE I've been using the ZTE MF286C - I found it was able to pick up the signal better (noticeable better SINR and RSRP), and slightly lower latency. For Telkom I've been using a B818. B818 performed the same as the ZTE for MTN. Using the ZTE, I've averaged around 60-70 Mbps. Peak...

    The official supersonic R999 Uncapped feedback!

    I've gone with the 1 TB deal. My usage doesn't usually exceed 1 TB, so it works for me. Speeds are > 120 Mbps download, even during busy times. Often I get around 170 - 200 Mbps. Without taking the occasional jitter into account the latency from PE to CPT around 22-25ms and 44-50ms to JHB. INTL...

    The official supersonic R999 Uncapped feedback!

    It's official... I'm no longer an uncapped user. I downgraded my account to 30/30GB and will use it as a failover only. Telkom will be my primary LTE connection going forward. The change was only supposed to kick in on 1 July aka tomorrow. I woke up to an SMS today saying I'm capped :) Portal...

    The official supersonic R999 Uncapped feedback!

    Unfortunately not... also beware of the SuperSonic routing. Not much of an issue if you are in JHB though.
