Fritos

People of Cape Town! Want to make some quick money this weekend? It’s easy! All you have to do is stock up on baby powder, spandex shorts, bicycle tubes and sugary-chalk water energy drinks and you’ll be sorted for life once you start selling those items for over-inflated costs. The Cape Argus cycle race kicks off on Sunday, which means that right now that Cape Town has more cogs than a warehouse filled with Games For Windows copies of the first Gears of War game.

Good luck to everyone taking part this weekend! Try not to die!

In Other News: Monster Hunter X goes west with Fire Emblem content, Rainbow Six sieges a pro league, Helldivers calls down for some cake and prepare for more Splatoon.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post today, because I was too busy asking people who they were gonna call.

          See? Chili, 1 “L”, specific dish. Chilli, 2 “L”s, the spicy ingredient.

        Great part is there’s no shaping or fair usage policy.

        Only got the 2Mbps package though. Will upgrade to a bigger one later

            Had Telkom LTE. Much faster (when it worked), but only 10Gb and terrible ping

          • VampyreSquirrel

            March 4, 2016 at 16:20

            Ah, I’m on Telkom LTE, hardly have issues with 100GB cap. Live 2 blocks out of “uncapped range”, so Telkom won’t even think of giving it to me. I do however get about 50Mbps.

          Would you mind sharing some details. I’m currently on a horrible 2 Mbps package (premium) and I need something more reliable.

            I’m at Afrihost.
            4mbps. So far no problems and no throttling problems either.
            They’re upgrading our estate to fibre now though, so then my speed’s going to be upped to a bottom cap of 10mbps 😀 I’ll be forced to pay a bit more, bit only a slight increase.

          • Lord Chaos

            March 4, 2016 at 16:36

            I’ve been trying to get our estate to go fibre. No luck so I got this while they wake up

            Took quite a bit of convincing by us to get the older folk to agree to signing the form to get it.

            Is there an open house on this estate xD? Thanks I’ll go take a look at them because Mweb has only been a headache so far for me (may just be a personal issue).

            I was at them before. Was difficult to cancel my contract, but totally worth it.

          March 4, 2016 at 16:34

          I do around 100GB per month, never had a throttling issue myself. 4mbps and so far I’ve never had a single problem.

            I was with Telkom on 4Mbps DSL… used to hit an average of about 150-170GB per month.

            March 4, 2016 at 16:59

            That’s about how much I use on a busy month.

            Yeah, I just like that he’s wonderfully un-PC (shakes fists at SJWs ruining everything), but he would make a pretty shitty president though.

          • Lord Chaos

            March 4, 2016 at 16:35

            Can’t really say that yet.

            Sure he says a host of bad things, but he’s at least somewhat honest (Speaks his mind) and most importantly, he’s not loyal to any campaign backers.

          • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

            March 4, 2016 at 16:39

            That’s the problem though, imagine Trump having to host Putin at a luncheon. As weird as it may sound, you still need that silly political decorum, and a guy like Trump would be like an obese guy on a segway trying to drive on beach sand….

            Maybe Putin needs a little real-talk, but I can’t see Trump having the intelligence to pull it off without coming off as an asshole.

            I actually think they’d have it out, drink some vodka and 5 years later we’ve colonized Mars.

            The Chinese would have already colonised Mars by then… 😛

            He is playing the populist game, much like Malema, half the things he is saying he can not pull off or go against each other.

            On the other hand he wouldn’t even have a tenth of the support if the other candidates were so piss poor, on their knees pleasing their sponsors.
