Johannesburg International Airport

December 18, 2006

The change from Johannesburg International to O R Tambo Airport

Not even ACSA can get it right, on their phone waiting messages they still refer to O R Tambo airport as Johannesburg International.

Come on ACSA, surly someone has picked this up as a TO DO item.

So if they can then I can then I will still continue to call O R TAMBO .Johannesburg International. 1 less thing to carry forward to the new year.

Monopoly

December 15, 2006

Monopolies are never good, the only purpose they serve is for profiteering.

Introducing a company who is in business in spite of themselves.

NGN, is a company who controls all the golfing handicaps in SA as appointed by SAGA…
Enough is enough; I have a stale worthless handicap. What is the point of having a handicap which never gets updated, or gets updated every 2 weeks? This means every golfer in SA has a 2 week old handicap. Mine now is 2 strokes off what it should be.
Using Global Handicaps which provide a free service to the public, my handicap should be a 12, on the NGN system is it s 14. In this instance it works for me as if we take NGN handicaps I get 2 extra shots against any golfer I may be playing, but I have friend who have it the other way round and this give the impression that they are cheating as they would need to play off a higher handicap than what NGN have them at.
Come on, SAGA and come on NGN. Pull your fingers out and get a valuable system up and running you have had long enough, your handicapping system is a liability to SA golfers.

Taxi

December 1, 2006

If you have ever been to South Africa , you would have encountered a SA Taxi for the masses.
Now if you live in one of our City’s you will no doubt have encountered many, many many taxi’s.

Living in JHB I have learnt to tolerate the taxi’s, only because they are a type of mafia, and if you give one of them shit you had better be ready to fight, the 10 that are coming behind.

What is getting to me is this, 80% of the work force who use them are at the mercy of a lunatic in a killing can, their daily commutes must be horrific.
I can’t come to terms with how the driver’s time is more important than mine, I can assure you that if I am on my way to a client I am going to make more in 1 hour than they make in a day.

As I write this now it begin to rain in JHB Northern suburbs and this is when it is a great time to get off the road, taxi’s don’t know what slow down it’s raining means…

With all that said, Metro Bus still operate in a good few areas to me a much better solution, and cheaper.
