+Frank Soll  a blast from the past I discovered when I was doing a major chuck-out.  Recognise those ??  ;-)  

Very valuable RAM chips circa 1997: a whopping 16MB each!  Whoopee 32MB of RAM!

Would love to find the invoice to go with it...probably the same ZAR value as a 2GB RAM chip now...except 1ZAR was worth at least 10x more then!

Yes..the great irony.  #twt    The SA public - quite justifiably - bays for the blood of some thug cyclists who assault a driver. A driver leaves two cyclists - riding within the law, by the sounds of it - critically injured. Where is the baying of blood, and calls for motorists to 'respect' cyclists or else...

Should we wager that there will be a legal outcome on the cyclist assault case before Burry Stander's killer is convicted? Justice is still in the hands of the motorist, whatever the cycle-hating fraternity has to say...

Taking regular exercise is the most effective single lifestyle choice people can make to reduce their risk of dementia, according to one of the most extensive studies yet into people’s long-term health outcomes.

One wonders if this is a big sigh of relief for Pistorius, and I big sigh of frustration for Reeva Steenkamp's family.  Guilty or not, botching the evidence means that Justice is ultimately unlikely to prevail.

Hooray something useful from Google Now!  That said, I am not that convinced that the #Proteas will keep it very busy :-|
#t20cricket  
 
Alright, cricket fans—we heard you. Starting today—just in time for the upcoming ICC World T20 in Bangladesh—Google Now supports cricket. You can get live updates on your favorite national teams’ runs and wickets, as well as checking their upcoming fixtures. Just open Google Now, add your team to your settings by tapping on the “magic wand,” and you’ll never miss a wicket again. (Make sure you have the updated app: http://goo.gl/idgt3y and have your language set to English.) Of course, it’s not just the Now cards; you can always ask Google for the latest scores, too. Even if you can’t watch your team’s match, you can still get all the latest live results, on your mobile devices and on desktop. Try “Bangladesh vs. Afghanistan” to see if your team’s up or down. Howzat! #T20WC2014 #GoogleNowUpdate

This is an inexcusable embarrassment for all Cape Town cyclists trying to improve the behaviour of motorists wrt cyclists.  Ban them.  #twt   #fb  @AndrewMclean
 
I cannot condone this kind of behaviour
