    125cc vs 150cc scooter?

    My daughter turns 16 next year and we have decided to buy her a scooter. At 16 she can legally only ride a 125cc, but the 150cc is the same price in most cases. I am having trouble coming to terms with paying the same price for less. Is there any good reason to buy the 125 over the 150? As for...

    NP200 yay or nay?

    I'm looking for an ldv for the office. I've spoken to a couple people who have recommended I stay away from the np200. I've always liked them tho I've never owned one. What's the verdict? I've also looked at a few Chevy Utilities. They seem good too? Cars in Joburg just seem so much...

    Relief from the banks?

    I applied for Covid Relief from FNB and they came back with an offer. It seems a little.. crappy. I was hoping that, for the lock down period, they would not charge me bank fee's, extend my home loan and not charge me interest on my overdraft and credit cards. I didn't take a salary last month...

    Do you think that there will be help for white owned small business?

    I really hope so, but everything Ive seen is talking about BEE and every application Ive seen wants to know all these BEE requirements. I suspect that this will turn into another corruption fest and what little money actually gets to its target will be for those that are black owned. :(

    Transunion is terrible.

    So every time I do anything with Vodacom I get a slew of fraudulent applications for credit in my name. I work through the crap every time and deal with all the crap and disputes. Last year when it happened I checked all my information with Transunion and made sure everything is correct...

    Sonoff for irrigation?

    So I'm currently using a hunter 401 to run my irrigation and it works ok. Its a pain to figure out how the programming works, but until now I haven't really needed to change it. Now I want to add some new zones and it only has four. So if I replace the hunter with two 4ch sonoff switches that...

    So my daughter is 13 and she is starting to struggle a little with her skin. My wife is convinced that if she (my daughter) washes her face 2 or 3 times a day with face wash then it will sort out all her problems. I'm not convinced if washing that much is good for you. So I have been thinking...

    I'm looking to get one of these. Ive found it on EveTech for R1299 but I have had less than stellar service from them in the past so I dont really want to buy from them, especially not via EFT. Where is the best place to get it affordably?

    Identity Theft - What do I do?

    So I just got a call from the credit department of British Airways (??) informing me that there has been an application on my ID number for a loan of R140k.

    Mouse Recommendation?

    I need a new mouse. I had a G700 and I loved it. It lasted me about 5 years before the switches started giving trouble. I replaced one of the switches but it was never the same, so I bought another one. This one lasted 6 months before the switches started giving trouble so I took it back and...

    S8 Plus Custom Rom?

    Since I have decided not to upgrade this year and keep my S8 plus I have been playing with the idea of loading a custom rom without some of the more annoying samsung and vodacom crap in it. The con will be the knox thing. I'm not sure what that entails. I have read that banking apps and some...
