Google Moon ?

Google has done it again.
In line with their google maps, they have gone and mapped the MOON ??
Welcome to google moon.

Today is the 36th Anniversary of the landing of Apollo 11 on our nearest celestial neighbours shores, and Neil become the first chap to bounce around on the moon.

Google seem to be getting better and better at the new crazy ideas...

Careful not to zoom in to far ;)

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.

If you have an SA blog leave me a comment, and I will add it to my proudly SA blogroll :)

Groen Knopie

Somebody forwarded me this Ringtone today.
It's in MP3 format, and I spat coke out onto my keyboard it was so Funny.

Download it here, and take a listen :)

Greatest Reward on Earth...?

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....."
  1. No Sir, your contract has been declined.
  2. "Um, ok. Could you please tell me WHY my contract has been declined ?"
  3. No sir, we cant tell you. Please phone ITC -Start thinking, have I being blacklisted, and why ? Shit in pant.-
  4. Ok, phone ITC, no sir, you have to go online, and get a credit profile.
  5. Go to ITC website, do credit profile(which is very cool by the way), pay my R25 and check through.
  6. Hmm, everything looks good here. No judgements, no nothing. Eish.
  7. Fuck this, im tired of licking your ass.So I go to hellopeter.com and log my rant."
This morning, get a call from a kind young lady at Cell C(Lerato, which coincedently they have 11 Lerato's working at Cell C in the customer Services Department), asking about my rant. I explain the whole story to her, and eventually she sorts it all out. Yey...

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.

And now for me to think of some stuff to blog....
