    The pain of signing up

    I feel like I have become one of those people who rant about Rain, but the signup process has to be one of the most painful ones I've ever come across. If it makes any difference, I got a SIM from Clicks, and attempted the activation and RICA process as soon as I got home yesterday. The first...

    FNB Fusion accounts and fraudulent transactions

    Hi everyone, I got a mega spade of denied from Telkom and I'm not too pleased about it. About two weeks back, my parents phone line stopped working. As soon as someone tried to make a call, it would ring once, then cut off. ADSL works fine. So I logged a fault, someone visited, and they said...

    Google Inbox Shutting Down in March 2019

    I saw this last night. I've been a fanboy of Inbox since I could start using it. Sad days. Fortunately they've posted a transition guide for people like me :D I tried finding the appropriate section to post this under, figured it was IT news. If I made a mistake, please move it. Source.

    Hyundai Atoz Cambelt Change

    Hello! So - my father has an Atoz / Atos. It's a 2005 model. Cambelt change is WAY overdue. I phoned up a Hyundai dealer in Durban today and asked for a quote, and they said R4000+ (couple of hundred over that, didn't catch the figure). Assuming my fathers car is worth R40 000, which I...
