Beating Off 2.0


I have a friend who works for Eskom and the poor guy has to go in all the time. I feel bad for him. He hates Eskom even more than us.


For today, I’m more upset with the electrician who wired up our office’s UPS wrong.


yay loadshedding from 2 - 4:30 at the office and home - I am gonna be studying after all


stage 4

that escalated quickly


Yep, I want to know what they are thinking


I don’t recall having had stage 4 before



Well i guess I’ll be catching up on some reading then


stage 4 is cowboy mode, they can shed anywhere anytime without notifcation, for up to 4 hours at a time, last resort mode


Here by us it goes off 4 hours at a time at stage 1 load shedding already I think. Definitely stage 2.


See its another reason why I will be here in the cape


2 and a half hours max here, most of the time its actually just 2 hours.


Or like today if it happens at 3 instead of 2 we get 1 and half hours if that


Afternoon all. Our loadshedding is fron 14:00 to 16:30. And again from 22:00 to 00:30. The 2de one hurts that is normally my netflix hours.


When do you sleep?!


Same problem here, we like to watch from 20.00 to 22.00 and that is exactly where we being shed, so I am rapidly downloading the netflix episodes to watch offline on a laptop tonight with my wife.


Great, so the upgrade from stage 2 to 4 loadshedding took us from no planned outage today to two outages of 2.5 hours each. If we have this tomorrow again, we’re looking at 3 sessions which would make a 7.5 hours for the whole day. Hopefully they start tomorrow after 7am again so we can miss at least one session.

Maybe I should start looking at a battery trolley for backup power. Normally I wouldn’t mind having some off time, but I have a tight deadline for end of March. Now is not the time for mini vacations during the day.


From 00:00 to 06:15


Luckily no load-shedding so far. Was suppose to happen 18h00-22h20.

I’m probably getting old, but the last 2 years I need 8 hours sleep.


we are sadly getting a genny for the office so no more off time :frowning:
