    "Forced" Vacations.

    Alas I have institutional knowledge which means I'm needed almost daily by a wide range of staff to provide information they can take credit for.

    You taking the Vax?

    Same with my manager and a good friend who has just been taken off cortisone and physio. All were doing OK until around day 8/9. With my friend I actually mentioned to him when he passed the first week that now was the time to watch, soon after he was put on oxygen because his O2 levels dropped.

    "Forced" Vacations.

    HR told me I was about to lose 16 days vacation. But I've done my research and know my rights and no one tells me what to do! I've lost 16 days leave...

    Must have been those pesky little nanobots. I must admit it might have been nice being a little magnetic, my personality certainly isn't but at least I could stick reminders to myself with fridge magnets.

    Well, just got Pfizer shot number one. I'm hoping for a combination of side-effects that include an Adamantium skeleton together with smoother Windows updates for both myself and my PCs.

    "Forced" Vaccination

    Maybe this has been covered already earlier but is any protection afforded by having had a strain of C19 necessary as effective against other strains as a vaccine might be? Clearly Delta is testing the limits of the current crop of shots but is it receiving resistance in people who have had...

    I liken it to a bad driver, they benefit from the caution of others who prevent the accidents the bad driver clumsily would cause if others on the road drove in the same way.

    Does the first option mean no because you've had the Rona or no because you've already had the Vax? 😬

    "Forced" Vaccination

    Yup, would be strange them being in the early phases in 2020 if they'd been mass producing in 2018. I actually remember the push in 2020 to get schematics for a simple ventilator from a UK based company. The model was no longer produced but they wouldn't provide the docs. Became quite a drama...

    Does seem a bit strange given they worked on production of ventilators in 2020: https://ewn.co.za/2020/04/06/denel-csir-armscor-eskom-join-forces-to-produce-covid-19-ventilator

    Everyone thinks they'll be fine if they get it because hey, its not that bad. Then it turns out they're not in that category. Think I'm upto around 8 or 9 people I know who have died, know others who have been in induced comas and are still undergoing OT after what it did to their body. Me, I'm...

    Ah OK, that answers my question mark re remuneration in lieu of liability.

    "Forced" Vaccination

    Pretty sure we don't have any similar immunity granted. The Road Accident Fund Act for example prevent you suing the driver of a vehicle and creates the Road Accident Fund as a substitute. That's one way general liability can be limited. To grant complete immunity though here would be a...

    Legal Aid South Africa would often hire Attorneys and Advocates to argue High Court criminal cases. I did a good number of them. It was always amazing to see how guys would fire a representative on brief by Legal Aid in favour of someone briefed privately. There existed a conspiracy that the...

    "Forced" Vaccination

    The problem with the statement is the use of "it" because it implies a singular vaccination. There are a variety of vaccines with different efficacy from traditional vaccines to the new mRNA vaccines. So its to establish what is required in the different scenarios presented.

    I confirmed that the 2200g works fine and we know the 3200g work fine too. Is that the original 1600 or the AF version?

    So I'll just focus on the end bit: "Somehow have the feeling that more people will start looking for loopholes to get past Mr Presidents words "No one will be forced to be vaccinated" and make life difficult for those who do not wish to vaccinate." I believe there is a Labour Court decision...

    Superbike: Need for speed fever _ buying advice needed

    Must admit I ended up in hospital due to a Yamaha DT 50 so capacity doesn't always matter. What does matter is not passing out on a bike, hitting a curb and being thrown into a stop sign. I had a great conversation with a guy whose wife had hit him with a panga while waiting for medical aid to...

    Superbike: Need for speed fever _ buying advice needed

    My bike is slow af compared to anything that has come out in the last few decades (like 40 years). I have an old XS 1.1. What I can tell you though is that bikes have different characters and you need to decide what character suites you best. Also, even my ancient 1.1 would scare many folk...

    The condition issue is much more important that R700, well it is if they decide (as they often do) that a repaint is needed or some other issues that aren't fair wear and tear. I remember an article years back on the question of painting as a grey area in lease agreements. Last house we actually...

    Rent Deposit...

    As I remember it the Rental Housing Act requires the deposit to be placed in an interest bearing account but doesn't stipulate what that interest must be. So technically you wouldn't be entitles to a CPI linked interest rate for example. I can't remember is this is a minimum requirement of the...

    [Wanted] Tippmann setup for self defence - rifle, pistol and accessories.

    Nah, they can be tweaked. Most are pressure regulated so you just up the pressure to up velocity. The simpler blowback ones you up spring tension to increase the time the valve is open and it ups the velocity. Most self defence guns using .68cal are just paintball markers with an orange paint...
