Edenvale wasn't included in the list but at about 8:30 or so the whole of Dunvegan lost power up until the Linksfield onramp/ offramp to the N3. I was convieniently writing an essay at the time.... thanks ESKOM!!!!! - Had to leave to try and finish it at varsity....but was more worried about my tank Hope it's ok... Damn inefficient bureaucrats! - Does anyone know what actions can be taken against Eskom if we were to loose fish/ corals due to a prolonged powerfailure?

Yeah, I live in Faerie Glen in Pretoria East --- Power out today from 11-45 to 16-45 that's 5h 30min. Don't believe a word they say about power shedding and the times. Every time we in Pretoria East get cut but in the area where the MP's, Ambassador's and f@*#ing Mayor stays they have never been included in the cuts.
2010 in the dark I think it's gonna be very embarrassing for SA as it's only going to get worse.
There were plans and strategies in place before the ANC to power but I suppose free overseas shopping trips and expensive cars are more important than power and power stations to enable the economy to continue. When did this all start - 1995 during the Rugby World Cup. ANC took power 1994+.
I'm p'd off but luckily no damage to my reef.

I guess filling theyr already fat burocratic pockets with even more money is more important than the wellbeing and growth of this country. What an imbarrasment it will be to invite the whole world to the fiva world cup 2010 only to be greeted by power outages. By the way, does anybody remember a very informative program called beyond 2000? The world does not need to burn coal, petrol and diesel for transportation. Semiconductor technology, hydrogen turbine motors, and permanent magnet motors that run without electricity are all a scientific fact. The only reason why they are not used is there is not enough money to be made by using this relatively cheap, efficient technology! It is all about economics and the abuse of power!!
