Today won’t see an Africast going up, as we’ve encountered a perfect storm here at the htxt.africa offices of meetings, events, deadlines and several circumstances beyond our control conspiring to keep us from doing our Friday podcast.

We do apologise for the break in transmission, but never fear, we’ll be back on Monday with a doozy of a podcast for those of you keen to hear our voices and listen to our unique take on tech, both local and international.

Nick’s at a preview event in London for the next Gran Turismo game, for instance, and he’ll no doubt have a lot to say about it on his return.

Until then, have a great weekend!

Deon got his first taste of PC gaming at the tender age of 11 when his father bought an 8088 XT, ostensibly to "help him with his homework". Instead, it introduced him to Leisure Suit Larry, King Graham, Sonny Bonds and many more, and Deon has been a PC gamer and hardware enthusiast ever since. He landed his first professional writing gig in 2006 at a prestigious local PC magazine, a very happy happenstance as he got to write for a living about things he loves - tech, PCs, gaming, and everything in between. He's been writing about it all ever since, and loves every minute of it.
