    Recent tech purchases

    Got these. Definitely good investments. Helped me twice to type out two documents quickly on short deadline when my laptop behaved oddly.

    Has your life and career gone the way you thought it would?

    Not sure how others feel but personally I gave up on making life plans years ago. We change all the time and are different people to what we were a year ago. I've learnt that simply some things will work out better than expected and others worse so we should just try to better ourselves in the...

    Looking for jobs abroad, anyone have tips?

    I have seen many tech recruiters on LinkedIn so you can try contacting them. I literally cannot count the amount of them that there are. In my field, it's extremely rare.

    Looking for jobs abroad, anyone have tips?

    Ok, After finally getting an interview for a job abroad, I get feedback and get told I'm on standby should someone pull out. I really thought I stood a good chance with this one, especially as the interview panel seemed to like me. I'm not sure but a rejection may have been better as it...

    The 2022 F1 Thread

    I'm not a big fan of Hamilton either and found him annoying in his younger days but he's matured a lot and dealt with defeat in a classy way after losing out to Verstappen. I highly doubt prime Schumacher would have dealt with it the same way if history is to go by. I don't need to be a fan to...

    The 2022 F1 Thread

    He's at best a very passionate F1 fan. He gets away with it because he's in SA where there are very few people connected to F1 insiders (those that are are likely not involved in media work). They are probably the staff of Ferrari, Mercedes etc. He just throws in some technical jargon which on...

    The 2022 F1 Thread

    The odd thing is that they love Verstappen, hence it makes you think race plays a part in this. I'm talking about Sasha Martinengo's fans. Verstappen is also quite obviously a product of wealth (most F1 drivers are) and you sense very conservative as well.

    The 2022 F1 Thread

    I've been following Renaldo quite a bit and he does seem like a closet racist but one that will accept black right wingers into his circle, some of the modern day ones are like that these days. But he's not the only one. I just used this as an example. Criticism of Hamilton is everywhere yet...

    The 2022 F1 Thread

    I've never been a massive Hamilton fan, I support Alonso, Magnussen etc but what is it with all the hate he gets? Is it because he makes his political views known or because he is black in a sport which is historically very conservative to the extent it didn't even really have a problem with...

    Will Smith slaps Chris Rock at Oscars

    What Will did was bad but I do think everything is capable of violence, if a certain situation happens. For some, it takes more to crack than others. Everyone is also capable of evil.

    Embarassing moments you had?

    Oh, plus had people take off with me and lose it with me many times. Not diagnosed but I've suspected I may have ADHD. I was also decent in high school at most subjects but struggled at the ones that required you to pay attention like Maths and Physics. I remember two of my ex University...

    Embarassing moments you had?

    Happened to me several times as well. Fortunately they didn't tell as far as I know.

    Embarassing moments you had?

    Around 2015. Raised my arms out to hug a girl and she didn't reciprocate. She may have not seen me or may have not expected it so it was probably a misunderstanding. I recall hugging her later so it was def that. Still it was embarassing to be left hanging especially when people may have...

    Has your life and career gone the way you thought it would?

    Interesting. I have not really came across many in my age bracked on these forums. Either older or much younger. I'm also 26, turning 27 later this year.
