I've edited my post to include some more local sites, also add those you mentioned above. I could always create a new thread with a better version of my post which can then become hopefully sticky, since I'll keep it updated.

Links I added:
Brabysmaps
Funnel
ModernGames
IS gaming
ITweb

I've removed google.co.za, not locally hosted

Games played locally: Warcraft III on gateway war3.co.za, world of warcraft on SA servers, Call of duty 4, havent tried Crysis yet. I wish there were a work-around for steam games such as Counter-Strike, Team Fortress 2. We should get our very own local steam server where we also edit the gateway, similar to how Warcraft III works, that would be the *****. It would probably be to much to ask for a steam server that also host the update files.

I like these for news...
http://www.iol.co.za
http://www.mg.co.za
http://www.busrep.co.za

Then I check out lovely lingerie...
http://www.thingamathing.co.za (Perfect for the romantic candelit nights being rolled out so generously by Eskom - countrywide!)

Then I plot what else to buy next...
http://www.jump.co.za

And when you really run out of things to do, this one's very interesting and hair-raising
http://www.hellopeter.co.za (it's a relief to see that you are not the only who gets treated like the gum stuck on some big company's shoe.)

Oh yes - this site's also great for all sorts of intersting stuff in the world of marketing (who knew marketing was so interesting?):

LOL, www.nag.co.za was the only site I didn't check, Thanks for the update, will fix.

Zoopy and myvideos are the same site, not hosted internationally and if it is, it is still viewable after cap

I think it will be in everyones best interest if we could confirm which of those Games work online after cap.
Also what apps work after cap

Added 14 more sites, 4 new categories.

I test all sites before adding to make sure they work.

Added, pretty cool how many useful sites SA have. I'm still looking for a software download site, one that host files such as winzip, drivers, winamp, system utilities. Tucows was not hosted locally so I had to remove it. Anyone know of such a site?
