Aluta Continua Cell C

Oktober 31, 2008 in Sonder kategorie

Miskien onthou julle van my stryd met Cell C oor die selfoon rekening uit die hel.

Die een van amper R 11 000 met  ‘n item van oa. R 7790.36 onder die hoof  ” GPRS while Roaming”.

Genadiglik het ek die bank sover gekry om die R 10 962 om te swaai , en het die debietorder ten gunste van Cell C gekanselleer, maar ek het hulle wel R 3500 betaal vir die wis en die onwis, net om seker te maak my kant is skoon terwyl ek ‘n bestendige een rigting e pos en faks veldtog met hulle voer.

Een rigting want hulle antwoord nie, hulle het wel my uitgaande diens op die 20 ste gesny oor die nie-betaling van die volle R 11 000 rekening. Ek kan nog inkomende oproepe ontvang.. veronderstel mens moet dankbaar wees.

Gister, na 4 weke, stuur Pam Viola Madlakamela toe jou wrintiewaar ‘n e possie , hier is hy

Good Day.

Nou kyk, sedert 1 Oktober het ek BAIE e posse vir hulle gestuur,  BAIE BAIE.

In een van hulle  het ek doodonskuldig die volgende vraag gevra

Dear Cell C

My questions again :

Your Cell C GPRS – Internet service has reference.
 
Questions :

1. Does cell C have a data roaming ( GPRS internet) service agreement in Mozambique.

2. If yes, what is the cost per megabyte of data.

3. If no, please confirm that you do not have a GPRS internet roaming agreement with a service provider in Mozambique, and also advise if such an agreement will be contemplated at some future date.

regards
Petrus Pap

Vandag kry ek toe hierdie absolute juweel van ‘n antwoord :

Dear Mr Petrus Pap

Kindly be advised that we currently don’t have GPRS internet roaming abroad also including  Mozambique. Please note that it is not yet confirmed when it will be launched or available.

Thank you

For any further assistance feel free to email us at [email protected]

Hahaha , wat kan ek sê anders as dat ou Richard my held is !!!

Aangesien Cell C nie ‘n “GPRS internet roaming” diens of ooreenkoms in Mosambiek het nie, volg dit seker dat hulle my nie daarvoor kan laat betaal nie ??

Hau, eish!  g’n wonder dit gaan maar sokkel sokkel daarso by die Cell C IT afdeling nie.

What next ?

As die sedoos nie waai nie.

Oktober 30, 2008 in Sonder kategorie

Tot eergister het die suidoos ons skoon deurmekaar gewaai.

Maar gister was daar net so ligte suidwesserige briesie en laatmiddag vandag glad niks wind nie.

Eers effe bewolk, maar net na 6 breek die son deur.

So het dit gelyk.

Eers was dit net bewolk, maar die outjies het sommer met ‘n roeibootjie gaan probeer vir geelbek.

en hierdie ou in ‘n kajak.

Toe breek die son deur. Die groot rots regs is Swart Sophie, en Dyer eiland is op die agtergrond.

Franskraalberg is helder verlig in die laatmiddag son.

Hier voor is die ghwano rots, met ‘n paar duikers wat die laaste bietjie son indrink.

Hier agter deur die duineveld is Dangerpunt waar die son nou wegsink in die see.

Morawiërs

Oktober 29, 2008 in Sonder kategorie

So week of twee gelede ry ek van  Die Dam af in Wolvengat se rigting.

Na al die reën in September is die Strandveld groen.

Wolvengat is naby Elim, en die Elimmers is die beste rietdakdekkers wat daar is.

Hierdie huis in Wolvengat is in dieselfde boustyl as die huisies in Elim.

Elim is ‘n Morawiese gemeenskap, die Morawiese kerk het daar en op nog so paar ander plekke, sendingstasies opgerig.

By my in die kar was ook ‘n Morawiër. ‘n Regte egte een. Vanaf Zlin, daar waar die oorspronklike Bata skoenfabriek was.

Probleem is nou net die Morawiese kerk is al vir eeue lank nie meer in Morawië nie, die Morawiër by my behoort aan geen kerk nie, en veral nie die Morawiese kerk nie.

Ek wou weet hoekom die Morawiese kerk in Duitsland was en nie in Morawië nie, wat die regte egte Morawiër glad nie kon verklaar nie.

Die antwoord is natuurlik dat die lede van die kerk van Bohemië en Morawië uitgewyk het Duitsland toe vanweë vervolging, en toe Duits geraak het. Moes maar bietjie gaan oplees, maar daar weet ons nou.

Haai fees

Oktober 27, 2008 in Sonder kategorie

Hierdie is nie oor Saterdag se rugby nie. Kon gewees het, maar was nie.

Hierdie fees was van Donderdag aand to Sondag middag. Net soos by die Walvisfees in Hermanus,  was dit opvalllend, en ‘n jammerte dat so min mense die orkeste gaan kyk het.

Tente  is altyd noodsaaklik by ‘n fees.

Allerhande stalletjies ook.

Feesgangers.

Die WP het miskien nie Saterdag in die finaal gespeel nie, maar hierdie ou weet wie hy ondersteun.

Hierdie was die lekkerste orkes, die “Boulevard Blues”

Rand – vasbyt.

Oktober 22, 2008 in Sonder kategorie

Mike Schüssler is hoof-ekonoom van T-Sec, en sy ekonomiese voorspellings was nog altyd redelik akkuraat.

 Hy skryf vandag in  Die Burger   in sy weeklikse ekonomiese rubriek :

“Vir eers wil die Reserwebank met
onveranderde rentekoerse volstaan, maar ’n mens wonder of dit so sal
aanhou indien die rand met byvoorbeeld ’n verdere 10% sal daal –
miskien sal die rentekoers moet styg.

Op die oomblik wil
niemand eers aan so ’n moontlikheid dink nie, omdat eiendomspryse en
die vraag na algemene goedere, soos motors, selfs verder kan daal.

Laer eiendomspryse sal ’n ramp vir banke wees wat reeds meer as 5 000 voertuie per maand, teen ’n verlies, terugneem.”

Terwyl ek nou hier sit en skryf verhandel die rand teen 11.09 per dollar.

Mike het sy rubriek seker al ‘n dag of twee gelede geskryf, en die rand se meer as 10% daling het klaar  gebeur.

Die rand hak nie eers vas by die gewone weerstandsvlakke nie, en persoonlik sal ek nie verbaas wees as die rand binnekort verby 12 gaan beweeg nie. Dis nou 12 rand reenoor die dollar.

Wat beteken dit :

Huispryse gaan verder verswak.

Hier is groot vasbyt voor.

Laastens, vir al die groot “eksperts” na regs bv. Anton, en na links soos bv. Francois, hierdie ineenstorting van die rand het alles daarmee te doen dat die groot beleggers, wat 95% van die valuta transaksies doen, besig is om geld te ontrek.

Dis nie net ons nie,  ook bv. Turkye.

En in die paar minute wat ek hier skryf het die rand nog so paar pips verloor … nou by 11.17 !

bietjie later, net na 6 .. die rand verhandel teen 11.25 .. nog 8 sent

Moskou vir Ou Top

Oktober 22, 2008 in Sonder kategorie

Die Portugese ontdekkingsreisigers het mos klipkruise opgerig waar hulle aan wal gegaan het, soos by Kaap Kruis en Kwaaihoek.

Lubyanka plein is ‘n baie berugte plek in Moskou. Yster Felix se standbeeld was altyd hier … reg voor die KGB se hoofkwartier … hier in die agtergrond.

Die Lubyanka moltrein stasie is met die trappies af.

Die spesifieke doel met hierdie was om die Amerikaanse weegawe van die padrao voor die KGB se gebou af te neem.

McDonalds se burgers smaak nog steeds sleg, al het hulle ‘n McDonalds tak op die Lubyanka plein opgerig.

Yster Felix Dzerzhinsky se standbeeld is  in 1991 verwyder.

Hierdie foto is in 2001 geneem.

Daar kom die Alabama

Oktober 17, 2008 in Sonder kategorie

Black Sophie was thirty-six years old when the Alabama broke out the Southern colours and made her dramatic appearance in Table Bay with the Northern barque Sea Bride as her prize.

Cape Town favoured the South, for slavery had not long been abolished at the Cape; and the Alabama’s men swaggered through the sunlit streets as heroes.

For weeks the Alabama came and went mysteriously, taking thirteen more prizes, always returning with fresh tales of adventure.

Kaptein Raphael Semmes van die Alabama

Now it was late in September 1863 and the moon was nearing its full.

All knew that soon the Alabama would be seen no more in Cape  waters.

Too many international complications had arisen, and Semmes had been given clear warning that he had used the naval harbour of Simon’s Bay long enough.

The deserters were waiting for news, and expecting it, in Black Sophie’s saloon that night.

Black Sophie’s deep voice reverbrated through the smoke and the fumes.

That night she might almost have known that Cape Town would still be singing the Alabama song more than hundred years afterwards.

” Daar kom die Alabama …. Die Alabama die kom oor die see ee ….. “

Never, they thought, had they heard such music, and never again would the Alabama song convey such meaning. They stamped out the rhythm and clasped their girls, filled their glasses and sang with Black Sophie.

That was their mood when one of Black Sophie’s runners panted in at the Bree Street door. They guessed his message before he spoke.

“Gone!” declared the runner. “Telegraph from Simon’s Town – Alabama gone!”

A link had snapped, and the Southerners knew there would be no homeward voyage for them while the Civil War lasted.

Jack Gove chose his moment and walked over to the group of men the Alabama had left behind. …

 ” So yon Semmes has slung his hook eh? What now , boys – what’s the plan ? “

“D’ye fancy shore jobs for a spell? I’d say it would be better for you lads to lie quiet for a bit – get out of reach o’ trouble.”

“Can you fix it mister?”  They were eager.

“I can fix up the lot of ye on the islands,”declared Jack Gove. “We sail at daybreak. Now lads, who’s for the islands?”

Die noorde, die “Union” het die Alabama eenvoudig as ‘n seerowerskip gesien. ‘n Seerowerskip met die Kaap as basis. Die ou Kaap kolonie se betrokkenheid by die Amerikaanse burgeroorlog.. en die oorsprong van die liedjie.

“At Daybreak for the Isles”  deur Lawrence G. Green,  uitgegee deur Howard Timmins in 1950.

Swart Souf

Oktober 16, 2008 in Sonder kategorie

I took my liberty to go ashore,
 and get filled up with Cape Smoke,
 I thought I would never come back any more,
 Till I fetched up at old
Black Sophie,

 there I met Maria Fine
 with a face so young and gay,
 she
caused me to stay overtime

 way down South Afric-kay!


Black Sophie, that strange hostess, belonged to a wild era. She was a Cape coloured woman, dark as her nickname, a huge and powerful woman with a vivid personality. Her boarding house was no better than other Bree street dives; but she had one redeeming trait – she was genuinely fond of the roistering sailors of her time. So much did Black Sophie enjoy her own parties that she almost forgot the motive.

Bree street was another world. It supplied all the needs of of beachcombers and sailors. The lower part of Bree street was as raffish as the Ratcliff Highway; a street where men from the ends of the earth met and drank and parted; a street that merged in into blue water and led to every corner of the earth.

Jack Gove, Billy the Prussian, Pete the Russian, Big Oscar the Swede, Cockney Jim, Bluenose Brown – few but the headmen had proper names, the rest were nicknames and often enough the owners preferred to leave their real names over the horizon when they signed for the islands.

They drank and yarned about the islands. They talked of the tons of guano they had scraped from those barren rocks, the sacks they had filled and humped, the ships they loaded, the sealing on sea swept ledges, the gullies and blinders and reefs of of the lonely coast……. and the island dawns when the birds rose from their nests in multitudes and darkened the sky… the ships that had called , and some that left their bones on the island beaches.

Savagely they remembered the long succession of crimps; those human sharks who had profited by spiking the liqor and taking blood money  for sending them off unconcious to sea in undermanned windjammers. Shanghai Brown of ‘Frisco, Paddy Doyle of Liverpool, Jim Brady of Antofagasta, Jack Booze of Table Bay….. Black Sophie, who did very much the same thing was different…. though they would have been hard put to explain why.

Sinclair’s island, Plumpudding, Pomona, Possession, Ichaboe, Mercury ……  Headman Jack Gove  needed more men…. that was the motive behind the free drinks; that and Black Sophie’s love of a party!

Brandy, bad woman and song- all those have sent men to the islands… but often there has been something more…… It is so hard to define that you will have to ship for the islands yourselves before you can hope to understand.

At daybreak for the Isles   – Lawrence Green

Net anderkant die sloep in Kleinbaai is hierdie rots. Swart Sophie. Regs.

Dyer eiland was eintlik naby aan die Kaap,  maar daar was guano om te skraap , en robbe om te slaan…  en ‘n partytjie met Sophie en haar meisies is op die eiland gereël.
