Finally the time has come, and I'm off on leave today. Whohoo..
Wow. What a year, a birth of a beautiful baby, and the sad loss of a loved one, so in all a rather "entertaining" year. But I have to admit, that its been a exciting year,with so many lessons learnt.
I guess living at the beach doesn't count as going on holiday, cause you already on holiday, so I am going to relax for the next to weeks, in front of my TV, and drink loads and loads of beer.
So to everyone who reads this blog, THANK YOU. I promise I will try and blog more next year.
Have an awesome festive season, Drink lots but don't drive. And just be merry.

I see its that time of the year again, where the International Weblog awards takes place.
They have a category for "Best Middle East or Africa Blog", which only includes 1 South African blog this year. It is a step up from last year, where I think we had none. Joblog highlighted this last year.
But what suprises me more is that its a relativley unknown South African blog called "The Fishbowl", first time I seen this blog (of which I have hundreds of South African Blogs), has cracked the nod in this category.
The Fishbowl lacks visual appeal, and the content is well boring. It has a standard blogger template, and has about 3 comments in the last 15 articles ??
I know my blog def doesn't match up to some of the other South African blogs we have out there, but surely the likes of Cherryflava, Joblog, Chumpstyle, SerenityDawn etc etc , the list could go on and on, could have easily cracked a nod in this category.
We looking forward to the South African Blog Awards, which thanks to Cheery Cherry we should have hopefully organised again next year.
Anyways, go vote anyways for The Fishbowl at "Best Middle East or Africa Blog", and lets get South African Bloggin onto the World map :)

Am most of you know, I am mapping befok. Still want my GPS for Christmas, but one day. Google Maps still leads mapping in my mind in the world, but locally we have a few options. Swoop used to be quite cool, but they seem to have stopped doing much. Now Brabys Mapping have come to the party. WOW. Developed by a local Durban Company, AAT, They do driving directions, which is a big plus in South Africa, and the maps are clear and concise. Only problem that I have is all the silly flashing advertising around the page, but hey I guess someone has to pay the bills.
Bookmark them; you never know when you have to have to drive down to durbz, who knows you may just never get lost again.

Eish, what a crap week I had. My mom passed away very suddenly last week Sunday. She had been in hospital for a Hernia operation, and things kinda just went downhill, and last week Sunday, I got the dreaded phone call. None of us were expecting us, so it was a huge shock. I have never been so upset in my whole life, and it was a mad rush to get myself to Pretoria ASAP. Kulula came to the party, and helped soo much. They checked our luggage in and allocated seats before we got to the airport, and they were amazing.
Last week consisted of a lot of hard unpleasant work, organizing all sorts of things. It’s someone I don’t want to wish on anyone, but it has to be done. So on Friday we had the funeral, which was very pleasant, and almost felt like closure. I know sometimes we all take our families for granted, but I learnt a big lesson this week, although my mom and I were quite close, we still had our ups and downs. I will never forget the last time I saw her 3 weeks ago, and I’m so happy for her sake she went peacefully.
I never got to tell her I love her, which I will regret. She knew I did, but it’s still a horrible feeling. I hope she is enjoying whatever she is doing now, and I will never forget her.
R.I.P Mom, I love you ;(

Once again “the Goog” has done it.
They have launched 2 new services in 2 days. WOW.
The first one is called Google Analytics. This is essentially a stat counter for your website, and shows you marketing values, as well as hits and all kinds of funky stuff. The one thing I really enjoyed, being a “geo-freek”, was a worldwide map showing you of where all your hits to your page come from. Very impressive. Take a look and see what you think.
The second is called Google Base. Another brilliant idea, which allows you to post classified adverts onto Google’s space. Not 100% sure if it will work in South Africa, but from what I have seen there are millions of things you can get here; Jobs, Recipes and anything else you can imagine.
Well I’m off to play Google Google….. (

Over the last couple of days, I really haven’t felt like working, and aside from reading the hundreds of blogs I have on the right over here ->, I have been browsing the net.
Working for an ISP has its advantages, which allows fully fledged surfing, of which I take advantage of quite often.
So my blog today will be some of the cool things I have found over the last couple of days. Use them or don’t :)
First up in my blog last week, I was amazed at what Apple’s new offering in the iPod, the Video iPod. I was so marveled by this, I ordered myself one from Digicape. Eish, those spur of the moment things. Dunno how the bank manager is going to allow me this one,but eh, its an early Christmas present :).
Watch for the review in about 6 week’s time, once I get it.
I also downloaded the new version of iTunes, which is awesome. Again, still peeved that we can’t buy anything here in SA, so I went and found a new couple of tricks to get me going for my new toy.
First up I wanted to find out how I could convert .avi or .mpg files to .mov files so they can be played on the video iPod. And along came Xilisoft Video Converter. Wow. This thing can convert almost any video format to any video format. Amazing. Of course you need to buy it (cough cough). This had me more intrigued. Now I wanted to download videos to play. This is where Emule WOULD have come in handy, except it has become Shit over the last couple of months, and seems to have really slowed down.
Somehow I came across this page, which is a sneaky sneaky way of downloading music video’s from Yahoo Launch, and converting them into .wmv format. Brilliant. A little bit of work required, but hey. Well worth it.
Anyways, I converted a few vid’s and we will see how it goes.
I also came across a website called digg.com which allows users to submit stories and as people read them they get bumped up the list. Another Great site added to my RSS Reader.
From there I came across the world sunlight map. At the top of this site was a link to webcams, which has a collection of private webcams which are open to the public.
Now I think I better get back to work, otherwise I just may never be able to blog again…

Why is South Africa so behind with the times?
I’m specifically referring to ITunes. I mean we have a growing number of IPods being bought here, and Apple have recently gone as far as opening a specialized Apple Shop in Cape Town, and even CherryFlava has covered this topic but it’s still irrititating ?
I still do not have my own IPod (yet!) (hint, hint), but they really have improved their offerings.
Yesterday they launched the new Video IPod, which allows you to download video’s from ITunes Music Store, and view them on your IPod. And Itunes 6 released yesterday, you can download episodes of Desperate Housewives, Lost etc etc.
All very cool, If you live in UK or USA :( Sad…

I keep reminding myself I need to start blogging properly. No more posts every month or as I feel like it. So I have taken the first step. Changing the way my blog looks, while it may not be a very big change, and all people who use rss readers will notice a difference, I think it looks cool. I headed on over to http://blogger-templates.blogspot.com/
and got me this cool template. What you think.
More posts to come...I Promise ;)

In life, there are couple of things you just have to do.
I'm no skateboarder. In fact I think the last time I was on a skateboard was when I was about 8. And thats a looong time ago. Now, I think my beer collecttion in my stomach prevents me from even seeing the skateboard below me :)
But like I say in life, there are some things you need to do. Which I did on saturday, and took meself off to Gateway to see Tony Hawk and crew. WOW. I'm pretty sure almost every person has heard of this super dude, and boy can he skate. He had a few other guys with him, but he totally rocked.
Gnarly Dude :)

Google have launched a new service today called Google Blog Search, which will do searches of all blogs out there. Technorati.com has been doing this for a while, but me thinks googles offering will be a much better one. You can even subscribe with an RSS or Atom feed to the search results. Pretty nifty.
Now, I wonder what the blog search has been saying about me, or my satelliteza (eish, not very much, except for myself)

I have been BAD with my Blogs. I know I always say, I’m going to start posting, but I never do. Eish, it’s bad.
I said in my last post I would post more on Google Talk, and I didn’t and I suck.
Well now I am, and I have played I really haven’t been overly impressed. It is a really basic Instant messenger that allows you to do voice chat, but definitely doesn’t match up to skype for VoIP or for MSN for IM. It has a very basic user interface, and seems to be very basic, with the options and features.
But as always with any Google product, I’m almost sure it’s going to get better. And I’m pretty confident that one day, Google is going to take over the world, kinda like Microsoft did in the 80’s.
I still stand by my favourite, Google product, Google Earth, and have decided to update my SatelliteZA Blog with some new links I have found for Google Earth thanks to my “Earth Hacking Rival” Michelle.
Now off to find me some more places to visit :)

Google has finally revealed what many have been speculating about for years.
Welcome Google Talk. Based along the lines as a combo of MSN messenger and Skype, it integrates Voice & and Messenger protocols into 1.
Could be a very interesting product seeing as Google has now pretty much matched Microsoft in all areas except for the Operating system.
You need a GMail account for it to work on your pc, and if you don’t have one of those yet, where have u been :) (or you can just leave me a comment, and I will give you 1)
More to come once I have played a bit more :)

Last year in April a very close friend of ours, was murdered. It came as a huge shock to us, when we found it was her Husband that killed her, with a Spade !!!.
It made quite a few headlines,
First it started out as "Pta couple disappear"
then -> "'Missing' woman dead"
and finally the fucker went to court -> "Pta murder: Husband in court"
What makes this story so sad is that there was a 3 year old child involved, which apparently he saw the whole thing taking place..
The fucker has now applied for bail, and claims that the Drug Lords killed his Wife (Another similar story on iAfrica)
In the latest story, he claims the drug lords went in and killed his wife. CRAP. I know this is bullshit. But when he went back to kill the drug lords (yea, right), he felt the need to smoke some more crack, and ended up in an "orgy of cocaine smoking". Go figure.
I really can't believe that people can think up shit like this, Seriously.
Anyways, the trial starts on the 13th of September, and hopefully the fucker will be put in Jail, and get to share a C-Max cell with his china Donavon

I think I'm getting good at this, 3 blogs in 1 Day...whoohoo
After my post on Monday about blogging, I have come across a few more South African Blogs, which have been added to my BlogRoll on the right.
These additions are Mainly thanks to Aquila's new blogs post.
Fnb & eBucks.com have announced an awesome new competition...
Win a trip to space...
What a cool idea. Brilliant marketing, cause I'm sure almost everybody has thought about going for a jol in space (LSD excluded :) )
"The competition is open to all eBucks members who are also FNB customers. Entry into the competition is automatic."
If you haven't got an eBucks and FNB account, I think you should get one...soon
I'm off to spend some ebucks, promise I will blog from space ;)

I don't like ranting and complaining, in fact I despise it. I let people do thier jobs, but get really pissed when people don't do it properly.
So I apply for another contract with CellC Direct.
- Kiff, I should get the new Phone for the wife soon.
- Wait 1x week, thinking surely something should have happened by now.Um, nothing.
- Phone Cell C Direct....."
- No Sir, your contract has been declined.
- "Um, ok. Could you please tell me WHY my contract has been declined ?"
- No sir, we cant tell you. Please phone ITC -Start thinking, have I being blacklisted, and why ? Shit in pant.-
- Ok, phone ITC, no sir, you have to go online, and get a credit profile.
- Go to ITC website, do credit profile(which is very cool by the way), pay my R25 and check through.
- Hmm, everything looks good here. No judgements, no nothing. Eish.
- Fuck this, im tired of licking your ass.So I go to hellopeter.com and log my rant."
So thats my rant, thankfully I think every company has to have at least 1 person who knows what they doing, otherwise this world would be an awful place.
Hellopeter.com is a great website. Both times, that I have logged a problem on it,
the respective companies have come back to me quite soon, and sorted the problem out. Any ranting you need to do about anything, get on over there. It works.

I have giving much though to my blogging existence, or the lack there of, and have decided to pull my finger out of my Ass, and get blogging.
After doing a bit of my Monday Morning browsing of the net, I was goign through one of my Favourite SA sites, TashiTagg.com
This site is really an awesome South African Site, and they generally cover Reality TV and the sorts. They cover Survivor, The Apprentice South Africa and my fav, The Amazing Race. Its quite nice to go to a local site, after every episode, without getting spoilers of who won the Race, seen as US is so far ahead of us with these programmes.
Anyway, back to the point, on the TashiTagg site, they have a really cool forum. Never been one to post in forums, I read through them Daily, and came across one topic, called "Do you Blog ?"
Suprisingly there were quite a few people, who didn't know what blogging was, or thought it was a swear word :)
Out of the woodwork, there seem to be quite a few more South African bloggers out there, so After reading Aquila's Post on New South African Bloggers this morning, I decidd to add another 3 That I found in the Forums.

I Have decided that with all the cool google maps posts (from commentary guys, and cherryflava) goign on here in SA, it was high time for oue own "google sightseeing" tour in SA. So I have created another blog called Satellite ZA
Anyone can mail me some cool South African Landmarks, which I will attempt to add to the blog on a daily basis. You can mail me on email@example.com and I will try and post the landmarks....
See you on the maps... :)

Ok, I suck. I have been rather slack and when Rich...! from Jo'Blog commented on my last post that I hadn't posted anything since May, I offically felt bad. So for the last few days, I have been trying to think of something to post, nothing...Nadda...Eish
Until I recieved this blog post from Google Sightseeing this morning, in my bloglines notifier. So I took a look around and chanced my arm with looking for South African Sattelite Maps. And what do You know....they are there...Amazing...Well not all of them are in Hi Res, so they not all that clear, but still its a step forward, which hopefully means Google Maps will eventually cover South Africa. I know I seem to be a google maps freak, but they are seriously amazing...
Some places in SA, I found so Far....
Durbz by de See (Not that great pic Quality, but you can still identify most things)
Pretoria, which is High - Res, which means you can zoom right down to street level, and even seem the Hollowed fortress of Loftus
Cape Town also seems to be a not so great with the Resolution, and the table cloth defenitley seems to be on top of table mountain ?
If anyone else comes across some cool places, leave a message in the comment...

Ahh, I love every 2 years, even though its a wait, it means Vodacom UPGRADE Time.
So this year I opted for the new samsung SGH-D500
WOW...Is all I can say. It was a toss up between the Sony Erricsson S700i, I decided to take the D500.
And I'm really impressed. This is one of samsungs first phones with Bluetooth support, and after getitng me a new dongle, It works like a bomb. The only thing that you can't do, is upload Java Games. But I searched far and wide and Im glad to say that I found some real boffin, who decided to share his secret of how to do it.
Still got lots of playing to do, but if I come across anything interesting, I will make sure I blog it first :)

Just read on News24 that the trusty goverment is planning on putting warning labels on Booze.
Just another fanfuckingtastic idea by our trustworthy goverment. Nice one...
Except do you really think that we gonna be SOBER enough to look and be able to read the warning labels, once we are so pissed and legless ?? Go figure.
Some of the "suggested" warning labels include...
- Alcohol may impair your driving. Don't drink and drive. -> Um, my car goes just dandy when I'm pissed, thanks...
- Don't drink and walk in the road - alcohol kills. -> Please see above, I dont walk when I drink, I DRIVE
- Alcohol may increase personal injuries. -> I have never cut myself once while pissed, never even stubbed a toe..sooo
- Alcohol leads to violence and crime. -> I once saw a woman in Cape Town beating up her husband, must have been the plonk ?
- Alcohol abuse endangers your health. -> Hey, I'm still halthy. I finished a Case on Friday, and i'm here to tell the tale. Ok, maybe the boep is a give away, but I can still run, sometimes.
- Alcohol is addictive. -> No shit Sherlock...Thats why Im still pissed...
- Using alcohol during your pregnancy could be detrimental to your unborn baby. -> Fok dit, my baby was born almost 3 weeks ago, and she is doing just Dandy, THANKS...

I am and always have been a big fan of Google.
But thier latest addition to thier stable Google - Mapsis awesome. Its such a pity that it only it only searches maps in the US, and we can only hope it eventually gets worldwide and maps South Africa to. Imagine how awesome that would be.
But if you ever hungry in New York, and feel the need for Pizza just Click Here, or if you need a it of Gratification in Chicago Click Here, Or Even some Home Loving, click Here
For those of you that have been to the UK, i'm pretty sure you must have read The Sun Daily Newspaper.
Luckily they have a page 3 included in their news paper(like most do), which from time to time, exposes 1 one luurevely Lady. Today they have chosen the lovely Keeley from Bromley.

"Staff from a Johannesburg company decided to pull a practical joke on
their boss who had a habit of playing serious jokes on everyone else.
While having dinner at a restaurant in Rosebank, the boss
went to the toilet, and they went through his wallet and found his Lotto
Ticket. Then, they wrote down his numbers and called over the waitress
to set up a little prank.
She came back half an hour later and asked if anyone wanted to know the
evening's Lotto winning numbers then proceeded to read them out aloud,
before setting the numbers on the table. The boss looked at the numbers,
then casually pulled out his, from his wallet and compared them.
He became really silent, put his wallet back in his jacket and sat down
again, and checked the numbers, very, very carefully. Then, he sculled
his drink, and checked his numbers again.
