Hey come on man, that's the definition of a Strawman argument. We all want to get our point across but don't resort to logical fallacies. Doesn't help anyone.

Too late for CrystalWeb? by betty85 in southafrica

[–]Lumpzor 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It is indeed too late. The typical ISP lifecycle at play here.

Join new ISP when they're empty/not congested.

Get amazing speeds and few hiccups.

Tell your mates that this ISP is amazing.

Everyone joins, ISP becomes congested, can't deliver the level of service it used to.

People complain and jump ship to the next big thing.

[–]Lumpzor 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He's still right though lol, a 4meg line will give at max 500kbps, that's on the high end in fact. My 10meg gives me about 930 down.

Best Thing to Do with R 100 000 #finance by RoqueSpider in southafrica

Speak to a financial adviser, reddit is not the best place to get good financial advise. It varies per person depending on your goals, flexibility, how quickly you need to be able to get the money out etc...

Did CrystalWeb die over the weekend? by Baronvonred in southafrica

[–]Lumpzor 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes, Crystal have gone to absolute shit lately. Their DNS servers are buggered.

They just cancelled my service for being on the "wrong realm" on the client portal? Never even heard of that before.

When I logged in to rectify it and couldn't log in, the technician sent me my password in plain text...I just cancelled both my services with them.

Will I be wasting my vote? by llamaluloo in southafrica

[–]Lumpzor 28 points29 points  (0 children)

No such thing as a wasted vote on a smaller party in my opinion, because firstly it's a vote that didn't go to the ANC, and it's a vote that counts towards the vote pool which will help prevent ANC from getting 2/3rds majority.

If anyone is after a really good red, I can strongly recommend the Graham Beck Coffeestone Block.

Legal advice re: towing services by TheMeatDimension in southafrica

[–]Lumpzor 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Tow truck companies are the vultures of that world unfortunately.

I had a similar experience but called my insurance on the spot and was told do not let anyone but "X" towing company take your vehicle. I hope someone can chime in and help you out but I don't see you having much recourse as nothing was in writing so it will be your story Vs theirs...

And due to our climate, we get some of the best wines. We're very lucky to be able to pick up a really terrifically good red for ~R120. Sure you can go higher but the quality here is top notch.

Sysadmin training and certifications via MOC On-Demand training by bubonis in sysadmin

4 times over the past month, which they have admitted to me was on their end. I believe it happens overnight and early morning in the US which is why we notice it more in the EU timezones.
