    It's usually one stage lower, note as well that CoCT electricity prices are quite a bit higher than Eskom direct.

    Can you actually price that at per square meter since it will be more based on location, number of walls, age of the building, etc?

    Well, no, they said reduced price, which can be true as more competition, but not really as the point of the cable is for Google to have backhaul in Africa that they control, so they don't really care about the price (at the same time it might make international cheaper as Google could sell at a...

    All the way from Austria? :p I'll do it myself at one point as a hobby thing, but wanted a wireless mouse anyways that I can take with to double up as a work mouse as well, can carry with. End of the month work is doing away with lockers on the premises while they rework the entire floor, so...

    It's fixing your mortgage interest rate, same as most places.

    Will have no real effect, there is more than enough international capacity to Portugal (WACS is the direct competitor for that) and you'd not really use that route for anything, pretty much everything you do that's Europe will be better served going CT -> UK -> Europe (be it Frankfurt, or...

    Didn't see this, technically I am in my family as well. Gone to my aunt for the third time where I stayed for more than a week, each time I end up fixing/building stuff, be it planing the door (not sure why they didn't do it in the last 20 years), redoing the magnet strips for the mosquito door...

    Amazon doesn't ask your birth date, it asks for certain characters on your id/passport that include your birth date and some characters as a checksum. Kind of like the system.

    Eskom Power Alerts

    No load shedding currently, assuming substation tripped or something. Good chance of load shedding in the coming days though:

    Note card is usually locked, issue is when you unlock without knowing if someone tampered with the envelope. I'd probably ask for news cards at their expense due to chance of fraud.

    Electricity bill went from 27 to 29 EUR a month, my usage has been climbing though, and my provider is fully renewable and isn't an ass like Linz/Wien energy, 27/29 is still quite a bit though. Linz/Wien Energy being taken to court now, can't argue gas price increase if supposedly fully...

    Yes/no, the Vienna energy company has decided they're rolling out city-wide cooling infrastructure. Right now they have hot water pipes running to most of the city (district heating / Fernwärme) where you get your hot water and heating from (runs through your radiators). They already have...

    Got my new heating bill, I am 78% below /m^2 heating in my building and 12% below water usage. I still get to pay total / my square meters, lovely. At least it's "only" a 85% increase in heating and 59% in heating. My one colleague they decided he gets a 280% increase, note that that will be...

    Issue is the price mostly imho, the A21 is near the same price now, and pretty much everything in the price class of the device offers a fingerprint scanner, the chipset is bad as competition moved from the Snapdragon 450 (the Eynox 7884 equivalent) to the 665 (about a 50% boost single thread...
