    while i dislike the situation, its not just SA with these issues, power is a worldwide issue.
    just look at all the USA builds with Gennies etc being part of the build etc.

    Suppose because it's some kind of an emergency. They apparently need to offload something like 5 times the capacity that Koeberg generates from the grid :whistling:

    Just FYI - Bothasig went down at 8:35 and it's back up as off 10:30. Hopefully all the little fishies was ok for the two hours ;)
