Billionaire Elon Musk – How I Became The Real ‘Iron Man’

As a South African, I am disappointed that Elon Musk is not celebrated in South Africa. He is one of the most outstanding entrepreneurs of our time. He’s revolutionised big industries, and He’s respected worldwide. Yet people in South Africa people don’t know who He is. The fact that He’s South Africa, born in Pretoria which makes this even more shocking.

I encourage my fellow South Africans to learn Elon’s entrepreneurial journey and see what He’s been able to do and what He continues to do. For me, Elon Musk is a mentor. Whenever things aren’t going my way or need that motivational push, I channel Elon Musk.

Bloomberg’s excellent documentary on Elon Musk is a must-watch for any entrepreneur and all South Africans. Come, South Africa, we need to start celebrating our heroes and forget about the other negative bullsh**t.

Protractor Timeout Ubuntu (Linux)

Life’s Good right now, I just joined a fantastic team, and I’m working on a huge Angularjs project. This project is what I’ve been looking for some time now. I get to work with my favourite OS Ubuntu and work with the latest web application technology.

After cloning the project onto my Ubuntu dev machine, I ran into the following problem when running protractor tests:
Error: Timed out waiting for the WebDriver server at

This timeout issue only seemed to occur on Ubuntu machines, on Mac OS this was not an issue. Anyway, after weeks of investigation, I found a solution. The solution is quite simple all you need to add to your protract config file is the following:

allScriptsTimeout: 110000, 
chromeOnly: true

That’s it, no more timeouts.
