Lazyweb: Truphone in South Africa this summer?

So, just a quick post here.  I’ll plan to do a more extensive post in May as well.  I’m trying to decide what I want to do for notifications while in South Africa.  I’m doubting the stadiums will have wifi.  I don’t know how much it’s worth to me to do live updates via identica/twitter, but I’d like to.  Truphone was suggested to me, but I don’t know what their South Africa message/data rates are.  FIFA is also offering pre-paid cards.  I should probably look into that a bit more, but I’ve been swamped.  Thoughts?  Mostly, would you care if I did live updates?  If not, it’s probably not worth looking into.

Also, as I’ve mentioned, I’m moving.  During my move, I plan to purchase a TV.  What do people think about this 32-in TV?  32 in is a little small, but it is 1080p and I’m not really looking to drop a ton of money.  There are larger ones, but it doesn’t get great reviews.

Also, we’ve got MLB and NCAA basketball guys lined up.  Not sure when he’ll get going, but I’m excited about it.  NBA guy just got a new job, so that’s on hold.  NFL guy should be coming soon, or at least that’s the last word I’m getting.
