    Apple TV and Smart DNS proxy quirks

    A bit of a long story to follow and also I was not sure if this is the correct forum. So, in order to watch Hulu, Disney+, etc. I have a US Itunes account and the Apple TV region, etc. is set to the USA. And I use the Smart DNS Proxy. And everything works just fine. However you can't use DSTV...

    Work from home. What does the company provide?

    A small cash subsidy. Some people got work laptops and LTE routers and data. I only got the cash as I had been partly working from home for the last 6 or 7 years anyway and I was using all my own equipment already.

    Perhaps she thinks he will get a free ride over here, with everyone who felt her husband did nothing wrong, falling over themselves to be her savior.

    Telkom/Openserve has not doubled my speed since 1 March 2021

    I think that they say the speed is up to 50, not guaranteed 50, so if the portal shows the account as 40-50, and your speed is 25, then there are other factors involved. hey may be asking you to upgrade from 50 to 100.

    Cell C contract customers must buy airtime to call private emergency numbers

    Hasn't this always been the case? For as long as I've had a cellphone contract, any "special" numbers would not use the free allocated minutes and were always billed separately.

    How do you recharge your electricity when the power is already down?

    With the one i have, it has batteries in to turn it on. When the units run out completely, it needs to stay plugged in, then the token code needs to be entered twice and then it works, provided the batteries in the unit are fine.

    Three accidents - one minor caused by not paying attention - I had just moved into a new house and as I was reversing out the driveway, I went straight into a small tree alongside the driveway. The second one was when a full grown Dalmatian rain straight into the front of my car, as it was...

    These are the movies that you would generally skip by in a normal year as you would focus on the good stuff. The big studios are probably waiting till people get back to the theatres before any big releases.

    How much money South African banks have given in coronavirus support – and why they won’t offer debt write-offs

    Technically, they haven't "given" the money away. A payment break or relief isn't giving money away, they are just collecting it later on with added interest.
