With an almost perfect day in Cape Town, hundreds of enthusiastic cyclists turned up for the opening race of the PCL Summer League series. The Cape Cobra was bound to be an exciting race as most of the riders were out to test their fresh legs after a festive season of relaxation and good eating. Due to the South African Championships being held earlier this year (first week of February), top athletes from around the country came out to gain some valuable racing experience, and to see what sort of form the other cyclists were in. Two new teams to the peloton, Team RSAWEB and Team Brothers Sport, brought a new and interesting dynamic to the race. Both these teams were well represented and resulted in a more distributed load in team strengths.

The Cape Cobra is a well known race and is considered as one of the toughest road races in the Western Cape. The 85km race started at Reddam House School in Constantia and took riders over some of the most challenging climbs along the Cape Peninsula. (more…)

Who wants Freebies?

December 03, 2010


 

Let’s face it, although Social Media is incredibly useful, it can be a source of much distraction – especially at this time of the year. You’re planning parties, attending parties, untagging those incriminating photos of yourself from parties – plenty of stuff to keep you busy and doesn’t constitute real work.

This #FreebieFriday we’re injecting a little social media humour with our ironically themed social notworking Geek Gear t-shirt.

Winners are selected randomly – so if you’re one of our twitter followers or Facebook Fans, or simply just said “hi” – you could be surprised with a #FreebieFriday prize.

UWC Students visit RSAWEB

November 24, 2010


Earlier this week, we were visited by two students from the University of the Western Cape, who are currently studying towards a Bcom degree with a major in Information Systems. Cynthia Kanyenze and Tejas Gihwala are part of the UWC Job Shadow programme which RSAWEB actively participates in.

The students had the opportunity to meet 3 of our key personnel members – Jason von Berg (Technical Operations Manager), Vernon Naidoo (Network Operations Engineer) and Ayesha Bagus (HR Manager), who explained the ins and outs of their respective positions.

Tejas noted, “I’m interested in pursuing a career in Business Analysis and Business Information Systems Consulting (ERPs), and found the presentations from Vernon the most interesting as we have a mutual interest in networking, network cabling and the mechanics thereof. Jason’s talk was also very informative, as he covered quite a bit on how networks work, systems analysis and business analysis. He used a lot of technical jargon, but once he’d fully explained it to us, I think we were all on the same page.”

” The environment at RSAWEB is superb, the people were very welcoming , and I particularly enjoyed the presentations from Jason and Vernon. My programming skills aren’t strong, but talking to them opened my eyes to a new path of Information Technology which I’d love to explore.¬† Although I was only at their offices for 4 hours, I have nothing but praise for them – They really made an effort to welcome us,” commented Cynthia.
