    Medical Aid: would going through a broker be beneficial?

    Hi I am looking to sign up a hospital plan with Discovery (probably - still deciding). I was wondering if there's any benefits to going through a broker? Or is it better to call Discovery directly? Thanks!

    Slow Internet speeds for South Africans caused by cable outage

    Hmm, I didn't reboot after installing Python, and I also skipped updating pip (I saw the message saying it's out of date but didn't bother). I'm on Windows 10 in case that makes a difference. Also, when I downloaded and ran the main TunSafe install file, it had the "Tap Adapter" as an option in...

    Slow Internet speeds for South Africans caused by cable outage

    I'm using normal warp in my test above. It's helping with the current situation - but I don't know how much of an improvement it will be when the cables are fixed and things are normal.

    Slow Internet speeds for South Africans caused by cable outage

    The bottom 2 are without Cloudflare. Local and London. The top one is with Cloudflare. Better ping and full speed. I'm in Newcastle, KZN so this is crappy 10Mb ADSL.

    Slow Internet speeds for South Africans caused by cable outage

    I was getting very jittery 380+ pings to London with lots of huge spikes. I used this tutorial to use Cloudlfare Warp in windows via Tunsafe (a wireguard client) and now my pings to london are 195-198 and very steady. The entire process took 2 mins. It creates a new warp account for you etc...

    Gautrain vs Uber from Park Station to OR Tambo tomorrow(Public Holiday)?

    I've never used the Gautrain before, and I heard that Uber drivers can get harassed by taxi drivers, though I'm not sure how common that is. My wife and I are arriving at Park Station by bus at about 5PM tomorrow (25th Sep) and it's a public holiday, so according to the train timetable there...

    Where to buy a Razer Blade Pro - or if I import.. can I get it serviced here?

    I'm interested in this laptop: It's $3699 so a very hefty price.. and I might get it from the USA. My question is if I have any problems with it, does Razer have a local presence that can help me out.. or am I stuck having to ship it back to...

    Telkom did something weird to my line..can't log in with any ISP

    I have 2 lines in my home, both under one account. An old line on 4mb adsl, and a newly installed one on 10mb. I called on Thursday to cancel the old 4mb line completely.. and was very specific about which line to cancel.. and even had them repeat it to me. They said it'll be done in 2 hours...

    Mweb Cancellation timing?

    I'm considering swapping to Crystal Web for all the good I've been hearing about them. I'm currently on Mweb uncapped premium. I see after logging into my mweb account on their website, that there's a cancel button for the adsl account. So if I cancel via the web interface now.. will that mean...

    Telkom can't fix a simple thing? I'm syncing at 2 & they can't change it back to 4??

    Hello everyone :) My line has synced solidly at 4Mb for about 5 years now, no problems (except during really heavy storms, where it sometimes drops and resyncs) - but in the 5 years, that's happened only a few times. Otherwise, it's perfect, and my SNR stats are all very good. About a...

It's not too difficult finding video's and articles about it now, but what happens next year when the next one comes out.. the new new iPad? And what...

    I need to understand an Apple person ...

    Be funny if they release it with no on board storage, and it somehow installs and streams all your apps, movies, music and pics from icloud. I know it's ridiculous, but waiting for it to release before selling your ipad2 makes sense, just incase they remove something you like, or the first...

    iPhone Ringtones

    I'm an Android user, but my mum just got an iphone 4. I tried emailing her an mp3 to set as a ringtone, but inside the mail app there's no functionality. Is there a file system browser that can just make a folder, save the files somewhere in the filesystem, and use the file from there? There are...
