    Johann Rupert: Why SA is on the verge of an IMF bailout

    Many people may not know this fact, it was the Rupert family that started Small Business Development Corporation (SBDC), now called Business Partners. I was a recipient of a loan from the old SBDC 26 years ago which got our business off the ground. With hindsight no Bank would have lent us the...

    Where to Clear my mind in Cape Town?

    My favourite place, I spend many hours of tranquil fishing at Cape Point. Just far enough away from the rat race but close enough to travel, 50km from my place to my fav fishing spot in the reserve. Don't do the usual tourist thing at Cape Point, also venture around, hike Smitswinkle, Neptune's...

    Do I really need to keep contacting telkom to keep my line on interleaved?

    Interesting. I think G.Dmt is set at Fastpath by ASSIA whereas ADSL2+ can be set either way, fastpath or interleave? We have 2 ADSL lines: *At our business, ADSL2+ 10Mb right next to the Exchange, very low attenuation, ASSIA appears to have set it permanently at Interleave on both Downstream and...

    New water restriction tariffs hit Cape Town: what you need to know

    It has always been about the revenue stream (pun intended) for the City of Cape Town when it comes to water. Water unlike electricity for instance where they have to first pay Eskom or even Rates increases which is regulated by law, water is one resource that they control and can levy whatever...

    Xiaomi Mi Box / Mi Box S [Android TV OS]

    Hi Soul Assassin. Considering the last set of speakers I bought was a pair of Goodman Magnum Ks 38 years ago, it was a welcome treat to listen to our mp3 music collection using VLC on the MiBox last night through some semi decent Sound Bar speakers. It was amazing! Thanks for the advice.

    Xiaomi Mi Box / Mi Box S [Android TV OS]

    Bought my wife a Samsung HW-M450 Sound Bar for her birthday and was wondering if this Toslink adapter would enable us to play directly from the Mibox S to the Sound Bar. The Sound Bar comes with an optical cable but no 3.5mm toslink cable. The HDMI cable is plugged into a fairly old TV. Or would...

    Telkom enabling ASSIA and driving me nuts

    Could you screenshot the DSL Status page again of your router Signor65, so we can see the top half of the screen like in the image I uploaded now. That Interleave Depth of yours looks crazy high to me but then I am not sure what would be normal. In my case my Downstream Interleave Depth used...

    Telkom enabling ASSIA and driving me nuts

    Fibre box was installed on the wall outside about a month ago, so I have options. However, I still need my Telkom line for business so will look at porting options one of these days. My 10Mb ADSL is working fine so haven't been compelled to change and make that call and possibly raise the blood...

    Telkom enabling ASSIA and driving me nuts

    If Telkom had to enable VDSL (40/10) here I doubt I would bother with Fibre, as I need a Telkom line anyway. Stuck with ADSL2+ My interleave depth was set at 128/8 couple of months back, ASSIA has been quiet since?

    Where in Cape town can a Family walk in nature safe

    Talking about temperatures over Table Mountain where the wind chill factor plays a big part in making it a pleasant or not so pleasant walk. One of my best hikes was last year in August on a day when I measured 12 degrees on my bakkies temperature gauge when I parked at Constantia Nek. I walked...

    How embarrassing, I was looking at Windfinder. Will edit post. Thanks for pointing that out Sam. Been invited to go fishing tomorrow on the boat but I think the residual swell is not going to be lekker at Cape Point.

    New water restriction tariffs hit Cape Town: what you need to know

    I was browsing through The Tatler newspaper today at the Dentist while waiting for my wife and noticed the changes that are coming with regard to water, electricity, sewerage charges etc. What caught my eye was the % increase on that unpopular new levy that the City of Cape Town implemented...

    Telkom is getting beaten by other fibre providers

    If we had that connection fibre would not be necessary as my attenuation is very low and perfect for VDSL.
