The Bloggers IdentityConrad

Hello universe If I write this, does it really matter? In one hundred years I will be long forgotten, no one will know my name. My life is only a spec in the history of time. Not only that, I am one of billions of specs on this planet. Do I really matter? Do I […]

Rolling down the riverConrad

There certainly seems to be a lot of excitement around the “Dave Winer River of news”, what he is done is actually pretty interesting, sure this is just a rehash of an RSS feed but it IS a very easy to use way of reading news, its lightweight and quick loading. The most common anti-arguments […]

Every night a strange thing happens all over the world, people get home after work, slip into a an alternate persona and go off to do their own thing, things like heading over to their multistory mansions for a bit of DIY or gardening, dancing with people they have never met before, talking to people […]

Netlife reviews IS 1mbit (DSL-over-fibre)Conrad

Tue, 11 Jul 2006 20:21:29 +0000

There is an interesting review of the IS 1024 kbps DSL over fibre solution (as opposed to satelite) over on Netlife. I quote: Pros: 1) Uncapped & Unshapped 2) Reliable 3) Great service desk 4) Far cheaper than Diginet based solutions Cons: 1) Cost, its far from affordable for end users 2) IS retains ownership […]

Tue, 11 Jul 2006 20:13:55 +0000

We are living in exciting times, I sometimes forget the incredible advances that we have made in the last 50 years, its scary to think that the BMW M5 has multiple times the processing power of all the computers involved in putting the Eagle on the moon.

BCCT Video SagasConrad

Tue, 27 Jun 2006 08:26:37 +0000

Friend Shane Wilson is trying to put up some BarCamp Cape Town video footage and has the blow-by-blow of the frustrating saga up over on his blog. Apparently YouTube has a silly 100 Mb upload limit which is only really good for a few minutes and not entire presentations. (He caught like a couple) Have […]
