Hi all,

Please check my new load-shedding website https://www.lexity.co.za , which I have recently created in the hopes it will be useful to anyone looking for a tool to help track electricity load-shedding outages.

Feel free to let me know what you think. It's just some very basic functionality. At the moment, I only have stage 1 - 4 showing, for City of Cape Town municipality. I hope to add more municipalities and features as time and resources permit.

I make no promises in terms of future functionality, but would be interested to hear any suggestions.

Hey Thor,

I have just released an update to lexity.co.za which includes responsive design for 6 different device screen dimensions:
  • 240 x 320 (small phone)
  • 320 x 480 (iPhone)
  • 360 x 640 (Android)
  • 480 x 640 (small tablet)
  • 1024 x 768 (iPad - Landscape)
  • 768 x 1024 (iPad - Portrait)
Thanks for flagging the issue.

In this particular case it would make more sense to use an existing system like Eskom se push (as they have notifications build in).

It's useless as you can't upload your own tables. You have to email the developer and wait till they have time or get no response. And our tables rotate so it is different every single day and month. I want to insert the table myself.

What do you mean your own tables?
 
It means I want to take our load shedding schedules for our area and insert it myself?
I don't understand - your area is already on their app. You jsut search your area and then you get the alerts.

Why do you need an external website to be able to do that for you, can't you just do that with something like google calendar or Outlook Calendar?

I am telling you the schedules are outdated and will always be outdated. IT IS USELESS. I live here, there is no argument about it.

No. Too much effort. How do you import tables into google? I don't use Outlook.
