    Planning for December (Lockdown)

    Given that the ANC government response to the pandemic can only be stricter lockdown regulations as infections rise, would it be unreasonable to assume that the ANC will again close beaches & 100m restrictions around water bodies, come December 2021?

    MSMs inability to criticise the ANC

    News24, IOL, EWN, ENCA, MyBB, etc: all of these outlets seem completely paralyzed in their ability to lay the blame for the failure of Government, its departments and the SOEs at the feet of the ANC. Sure, every now and then a single ANC cadre will be lightly fingered (pun intended) as the...

    Cell C Fibre is increasing their prices by R80 from July 2020 for the same speed. Is there another ISP anyone would recommend on Openserve that I can migrate to for under R800pm for 20-meg fibre

    Things are worse now than the week before the lock-down. Change my mind.

    As per the thread title. My view is that measures Government put in place the week before, and the awareness created around SARS-COV-2 / COVID-19, were much more effective than the lock-down.

    Where to upload old software and CD/DVD-libraries?

    WhatsApp "Background" Camera Access?

    Whilst reading a message on WhatsApp earlier, I rotated my phone and the display switched into landscape mode. As it switched, I caught a glimpse of myself, as seen by the selfie camera, in between the frames whist the display was switching to landscape. Does this mean WhatsApp has at least one...

    Hoverboard Reccomendations

    Our 8yo is very keen on us buying her one of these things for the birthday in December. I'm rather clueless on what to be on the lookout for regarding hoverboards. This shop seems to have a nice selection. I'm not looking to get the smallest variant and am thinking of an 8.5" board that is...

    Notebook USB-C Charging Support

    My Wife bought this notebook over the weekend and I was wondering whether it could accept a battery charge over USB-C from a powered docking station? Can I simply plug a USB-C cable connected to a wall charger to check of the battery charges as confirmation? There is nothing in the device's...
