How do you know someone is in an area that never gets loadshedding ?

How do you know when ESCUM is lying?
When their lips are moving.
On the west rand of JHB we have had quite a bit of load shedding.
Don't believe anything ESCUM says.

Have had three power outages in the past two weeks so I don't suppose it matters if there is no load shedding.

Eskom said it had notched up over two weeks without load shedding on Wednesday.
Actually it's almost 3 weeks, just checked the uptime on a server that shuts down after 5mins on UPS:

... needless to say Eskom have probably jinxed us with this press release :mad:

People complaining that there is power issues and think it is due to loadshedding. Most power issues in the west rand and joburg area is due to local power stations not transferring power correctly

As others have said, Eskom only gloats about how long it's been when they know its about to come back.

Invested in my second double-battery inverter a week ago, so now I should have enough power to maintain everything I need to be productive during office hours. Next on the list is some solar panels for the first step in getting off the grid
