    Your oldest working phone

    Let's take a walk down memory lane, dig through your drawers and try to power up your oldest cellphone. I just made a call on my Nokia 1610 with home made battery : Will see how long this battery last. Might change it to a Li-Po one that fits into the battery pack.

    The Thin Client Thread

    I have made some previous posts about model specific thin clients, however this thread is for those that also enjoy pushing these tiny machines to new limits. Quite often you can find these on sites like bidorbuy/gumtree/olx/ebay/etc for prices that are a fraction of what they sell for new. Most...

    The view from your bedroom window

    With so many negative things in our country we often forget that it is still one of the most beautiful countries to live in. Therefore one should make the most of it and try to capitalise on the beauty of the land. As the saying goes; life moves pretty fast, if you don't stop and look around for...

    Do you have a song that reminds you of your car?

    Just curious if anyone else has a song that reminds them of their car when they first got it. Perhaps you had something that was a favourite on your playlist at the time and you played it when you took delivery of your car? I have a couple of tunes that will always make me think back to when I...

    What's up with those stars and red and blue fridge magnets?

    Someone asked me what's up with these red, white and blue star vibe fridge magnets on Top Gear? Good question, I don't know. Does anyone else have a clue what it is about?

    APU performance increase DDR3-1333 to DDR3-1600

    For the last two years I ran my PC on 2x8GB Transcend DDR3-1333MHz CL9 RAM. I noticed I never use more than 3GB of RAM so technically 16GB is overkill for me. Currently it runs in single channel mode as AM1 does not support dual channel. I am wondering what kind of a performance gain I will...

    2016 Opel Astra K

    The current Astra J is a beautiful car, but the replacement is on the horizon and is about 2 years or so away. The 10th generation Astra seems to be influenced by the Monza Concept. Something about the front feels rather E-type-ish which is a good thing.

    Old Concept Cars

    Stumbled upon this site while trying to show someone the Ford Probe III on which the Sierra was based. Must be one of the most complete sources of concept cars from all manufacturers. Really worth a visit :

    Official Vodafone 785 / Smart 4 Mini thread

    Go mine yesterday, first impressions were not too great but it was certainly a hit amongst most of my co-workers who found it to be excellent value for money. Once I got home and had time to play around with it I really started to enjoy it. It does wonders with the limited RAM it has, Chrome...

    R100,000 budget - thoughts on Audi A8 4.2L D2?

    Yes "This thread is about the A8 D2" because if you have ever driven one, and heard the amazing sound of its 12 speaker Bose sound system you'll know why it is a waste of money to spend R100,000 on any other Audi, especially piddly two litre B7s with their worn out interiors. Life is just to...

    Historical significance : Delta Motor Corporation vs South African Motor Corporation

    While I realise this thread has the potential for going off the rails I am curious as to what those that were around at the time think of the whole Delta VS SAMCOR thing. For many recent other threads, of great historical significance, was their first encounter with divested entities like...

    Natural Running Shoes - are they any good?

    I don't run as much as I used to, back in 2011 I managed to put 800km on a pair of Nike Pegasus 28s and by mid 2012 I already had more than 1200km on a pair of Asics Nimbus 13s. Since then I only did 1000km on Nike Pegasus 29s and the last few times I ran in the 29s I had to stop because my of...

    How much fuel did you save this year?

    I did the maths, out of the 220 times I went to work this year, 140 of them was on my bicycle. Since I stay only 10km from work it would have cost me R5.5k if I were to drive to work every day, thankfully I saved R3.5k. So with high fuel prices getting even higher, budgets getting tighter...
