If you decide to use Cyber Cafe’s please checkout listings on the Internet Cafe Directory.

You can either use pre-paid hotspots available at most hotels, airports, restaurants or you can use your own USB modem with a SA sim card, using pre-paid airtime. The easiest is Vodacom or MTN. Stay away from Cell C or Virgin Mobile as they do not offer anything above Edge. So purchase a pre-paid sim card from their shop at the airport and ask them how to load data bundles. Your laptop should be set-up to use it as is.

Bill Hicks used to end his shows with this…

Bill Hicks comedianLife is like a ride in an amusement park and when you go on it and you think it’s real, cause that’s how powerful our minds are, and the ride goes up and down, and round and round. It has thrills and chills and its very brightly coloured. And it’s very loud and its fun for a while. Some have been on it for a long time, and begin to question is this real or is this just a ride. And other people have remembered and they come back to us, and they say “hey don’t worry, don’t be afraid ever, cause this is just a ride.”

And we kill those people. “Shut him I’ve got a lot invested in this ride. Shut him up! Look at my furrows of worry, look at my big bank account, and my family, this has to be real.” It’s just a ride. We all kill those good guys who try and tell us that. You ever notice that? And let the demons run amok. But it doesn’t matter cause its just a ride. And we can change it any time we want. It’s only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings with money. Just a choice right now between fear … and love.
