    SAA business rescue plan in deep trouble

    Well the debt to Comair is the fine SAA owes them for anti competitive activities (I seem to recall the fine being over a Billion Rand) so I doubt they are going to see anywhere near R1 to the Rand of that fine owed to them so maybe it would be in their best interests to kill them off rather and...

    SAA business rescue plan in deep trouble

    I was on the aisle so didn't have the best visual, but we seemed to touch down very late and bounced back up and then down again.

    Home Affairs requiring couples to produce the BI-30 marriage document

    Tracked the marriage minister down to a school he now teaches at in KZN. Confirmed he still had all his parish stuff in the boxes he moved with. He found the book which contained the carbon copy of our marriage register and then took a good photo and WhatsApp'ed it to me. That man is a legend!

    SAA business rescue plan in deep trouble

    I would've told the unions to sex and travel. They have no cards to play in this business rescue process and they can just be ignored. Government listens to them because their represent massive chunks of voting stock. No such problem for the business rescue chaps.

    The Official Xiaomi Thread

    Miui 11 on Android 10 has a very irritating unlock effect (Mi 9T). When you unlock it shows a blank home screen for a split second and then pops in the widgets and app icons. This feels like a lag stutter every single time. Have not been able to find a setting to turn this transition off. Grrrr
