They never learn. It's like load balancing is this mythical concept...

Oh and they were supposed to be "prepared"
Of course not.. it was all just media hype and spin

The one thing that I wanted was only limited to about 150 units which are already sold. Sigh

Was hoping for more specials in the camping section, surely you have more line items that you could have discounted.

But overall did not have a problem with the site, cloudfare would do its thing and then let you through to the landing page.

Once you have an item in the cart, it warns that it will be moved to a saved for later section after 30 minutes. Keep getting a message that the time has run out when I try to login, even though it has only been 30 seconds.

You have 30 seconds to checkout, but takes 2 minutes to load the page. GG

5th year in a row now?

Doesn't the hosting company know what load balancing is?

The Black Friday on the QLED is R4.00 more than what I paid a few months back, albeit also on a special.

I thought Black Friday specials trumped other specials though
