    Russo-Ukrainian War - 2022 Edition - Part3

    Some reasons why Mearsheimer is wrong: • As a realist, and like all realists, he is not realistic enough and there are blindingly obvious realist realities he completely ignores. He ignores the facts of Ukraine's massive oil and gas reserves (closer to Putin's market than Putin is) agricultural...

    Russo-Ukrainian War - 2022 Edition - Part3

    This one's for those tankies like @nicodeamus.18726 who have some cartoonish ideas about sanctions hurting the West more than it does Russia.

    Is Miphones.co.za legit?

    Thanks, but that's the number I already have. It just goes to voicemail. WhatsApp is ignored. Emails to all 3 addresses bounce with "mailbox unavailable or not local", webmail receives no response, and Live Chat is dead. HelloPeter is full of similar complaints of no comms. It seems MiPhones...

    Is Miphones.co.za legit?

    @GazXO, My wife went and bought a phone on their site and it's not arriving and I'm having the same problem with comms. Please will you send me the phone number you mention. I'll PM you so it's easier for you to reply.

    USD - ZAR trade anomally

    Could it be that the graph might now be given a higher resolution so one sees weekend activity detail one doesn't normally see?

    USD - ZAR trade anomally

    That explanation doesn't quite satisfy me. I have noticed that the weekends pretty much flatline but this seems different in its detail. Take a closer look at previous weekends and you'll see they are quiet, pretty much hold the line. This has a strong, regular harmonic up and down to the same...

    USD - ZAR trade anomally

    Could someone who knows something about currency trade tell me what the hell this strange anomaly is. I've never seen anything like this before. It looks like big trades done in a way that responds to the reaction. Could it be a sell-off until it reaches a price threshold > wait for recovery >...

    Telkom App Misleading or False or Deliberately Unhelpful?

    More nonsense from the Telkom app:- So it's the first of the month and my new data and minutes kick in overnight. In the morning I am faced with a report telling me that somehow exactly 500 minutes have already been used on a bundle that gives me 100 all-network. That meat is thrown into the...

    Telkom App Misleading or False or Deliberately Unhelpful?

    The voice history graph is also kind of useless. I know for sure I made calls in December and never made even half of 624 minutes in January.

    Telkom App Misleading or False or Deliberately Unhelpful?

    Thanks. That might explain it. It seems really dumb of them to mix free and non-free minutes on the same graph - especially in a context where there is the power to represent everything separately and graphically.

    Telkom App Misleading or False or Deliberately Unhelpful?

    Can anyone tell me why my Telkom app tells me I have 2975 minutes left but a Telkom SMS tells me my All-Net voice bundle has been used up, and I can no longer make calls? The data report is also contradictory. I get 1 Gig per month but it tells me stuff like 5 B left, 2.48 Gb used. I sent a...

    Please Rate Vox

    VOX value-for-money = Excellent network quality = Excellent support = Excellent. If you can't pay in time, they give you some grace and communicate with you before cutting you off. That is worth gold.

    Telkom Data Confusion and Fat Payment Rejection Fee

    The most you can do is add your voice to the complaints about this on HelloPeter. When my contract is up I'll be leaving Telkom. Telkom is fine until something goes wrong. When that happens it's like you land on the big snake on the last block of Snakes and Ladders and go right back to the...
