    Only one of these adds to your value as a human being: Consuming things other people have made or making your own.

    True...there's not much you can do with local. The local usenet is useless and there's only so much local browsing you can do.

    you could always create a script to loop and keep downloding iso's from IS

    I can send the PM... but it will be empty, I have no idea what folders are on there. Try a few random ones, maybe you get lucky

    Here is my local bookmarks, nicely organized in firefox, not sure if all of them are locally hosted though, but most of them should be.

    Game Server/downloads: http://games.saix.net/ ; http://www.is-gaming.co.za ; http://games.tucows.saix.net/
    Other downloads: www.newshost.za.net

    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.

    The best local search engine in my opinion is funnel -- http://www.funnel.co.za/ - it's got a very google-like feel to it.
    http://www.aardvark.co.za/ is great too - it uses google's database, so you can use it for normal google searches too by setting the results to 'global'.
    As for maps, http://www.brabysmaps.co.za/ is definitely the best in SA at this stage...

    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

    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?):
