I had inside scoop from a few of my friends working in government that many of their salaries will see freezes for next financial year. No increases. Unless, of course, you're an exec or higher, then you'll get an increase of 20%, plus a cool R1m+ bonus.

It's concerning just how many scams, computer hacks etc. have been happening lately. I've just received an email from my website host informing me their servers were compromized: names, ID numbers, bank details, passwords.

Not true! I have recently received an email claiming "Why TELKOM is on the Rise" - absolute BS. Aside from this one never gets any communication from TELKOM, not even when it takes 3 months to replace a cable cut by construction workers!

I now have it on good authority that this Susan Botha is a cousin-in-law of Waitress Suzie who was alleged to have been involved in the food poisoning incident involving the 1995 All Blacks!

Only my UPS stays plugged in but all devices from the (UPS) multiplug gets unplugged except a 15w desktop low-energy lamp. The UPS itself seems well protected as our mains power has been knocked out twice before, one when lightning took out a pine tree two houses away from us, the second was a direct strike on a Telkom pole that blew the line open in 3x different places and destroyed the cordless phone. All that can stay plugged in is that desk lamp so I can see in the dark when the power goes out. [ A UPS cannot protect your dstv, pc or tv's when there is a direct strike - the induced emf currents from a lightning strike can kill your pc's mouse, modem or even keyboard (ie USB devices). ] Only use a smartphone or tablet (not on charge) if you absolutely must be connected or on the phone during a thunderstorm. The house owner with the pine tree had damage all over his property: gate motor, intercom, tv, desktop pc's motherboard, the mouse etc. They had to cut the pine tree down - it was split right down the middle. We have a small lightning rod for the main house but it's not nearly high enough for the entire property - for that you need a $$$$ professional installation and for a property with two big trees two lightning masts will be needed at $$$$ each.

Was looking at telkom, you make me scared,its ok till you got problems.Suppose as long as you stick to pay as you go you should be alright and no contracts,so u can terminate easily if problems arise.I had a problem with MTN and found there are no numbers where you can speak to a live person on Mtn.Its a great pity that Telkom doesnt have good after sales service,they would slay the market,Service doesnt exist in african language seems to be,with odd exceptions to the rule,generalizing I know .

I played the same game a few years ago. 3 month fault. No attempt to repair, so I cancelled. Now they claim I must pay the 3 months I refused to pay due to the fault. So I am expected to pay for an ADSL line which doesn’t work... That’s like paying for a rental car that doesn’t run.

Facecrook: Poor Susan, a movie in the making, soapies are best, tug at all the sensitive bits! I know a Louis Botha. Was popular with aeroplanes, at least until the King of the Shaka's moved north with the weather vane.

That's the 2nd reason I will never ever go near ADSL, the 1st being that lightning will take out your router with the Telkom line if there's a strike close by or on a Telkom pole near to you. Yes,yes you can get discounted Terrabyte data but once your line and equipment is fried it's pretty useless. In Randburg forget ADSL unless you want to replace all your tv's and dstv equipment & cordless phones after every thunderstorm: we have to unplug everything even my desktop pc on a UPS that's how bad the lightning gets here. Mobile is our only option on a smartphone or desktop pc. But wait there's more: every now & then that horrible landline just dies and then Mau has to report it at which point Telkom informs Mau that there is an 'area' fault and that they are working tirelessly to get it up & running again. FFS, can't they SMS their landline customers when this happens, so one at least knows the darn thing is dead again? Wait wait, maybe Susan Botha can help....

The most serious problem with Telkom is their coverage map is useless. It tells me I have full LTE when 2G is almost non existent.

I decided to see if I could find alternatives for filling in a pdf form using Linux Gnu/Gnome/KDE/Mate as a desktop OS. It seems the recent version of the KDE application, Okular, has the means to fill in a form. No means to easily do a signature still. Just mentioning it for those people, like me, that don't want to use Windows.

Thanks for the replies. Nowhere does Telkom mentions what software to use. Still don't understand why not have other document formats. I use Linux and won't use Windows for this, when everything else I need works fine. Also even with those tools, how do you embed your signature? By inserting a scanned signature image? Also I believe a small proportion of the general public will know how to fill in this form, without some assistance. There is no reason for this to be so obtuse. Also a fax can be send for landline cancellation, but not mobile cancellation, is that correct, or am I misunderstanding?

What else do we know about 'Susan Botha', other than that the name is probably completely fake and that she or he is a transvestite in disguise. Does he/she/it like volleyball, soccer, rugby, tennis, monopoly or what? Dig a bit deeper, spy a bit more so everyone can find our if there's any relation to Mr.&Ms Smith or a certain Harry & Sally....maybe Bonnie & Clyde are involved too in sinister ways we could never imagine, maybe it leads back to Alice in Wonderland. Call the ghostbusters!

Foxit PDF Reader (and probably other software as well) has tools that allow you to edit and sign PDF documents. I no longer print documents to fill them in or sign them, I do it straight from my computer.
