KISS THE RAIN......
A high tech tracking signal? A device installed in one of the luxury vehicles? OR, devices attached to the streetlights/telephone poles surrounding the property over at 29 Collingham Road?
Since the lies that fell from the so earnest lips of Allen Spence, Master of Electricity for Durban & Puppet to the Corrupt, I have learned that nothing is as it seems.....*cackles...
So I will have to guess as always.....
Mr. Shiraz Fahed and Councillor William Mapena (see Sunday Tribune 7th October 2007) are no longer the flavour of the month? That after a tipoff, the chopper occupants were clearly able to see these luxury vehicles moving on and off the property and became sufficiently curious to finally activate all the marvellous monitoring devices on the poles nearest to the Fahed property....
That audio monitoring of No. 29 Collingham Road itself took place, and monitoring of cellphones and fixed lines on the property as well? Can this evidence be used in Court? Probably not yet, but simple enough to build a case without revealing the rabbit in the hat...*chortles delightedly....
When this Big Brother system is actually used to catch genuine crooks, one cannot help but applaud....*claps....
If young Mr. Fahed is still puzzled by his downfall, let him look no further than at the Telkom Wimax boxes nearest his home...*falls over..
There is also the ironic possibility that he is himself a Wimax Trialist...*cackles.... That he too signed Telkom's Confidentiality Form, enchanted with the concept of something for nothing...*beams....
Let me remind you that once you or your neighbour have signed that ambiguous document, your right to any form of privacy has left the building...*grins...
Is the Councillor guilty of complicity in this matter? If so, will he be allowed to buy his way out? the public will certainly never hear the finer details of the case but it makes for interesting speculation does it not?
It could be that this case is one of the first examples of what lies ahead for you all? That the Councillor has enemies powerful enough to pay for the information gleaned from this Big Brother/Telkom Wimax Project... that the Tribune article ends with the fact that the Councillor is not a suspect at this stage is pretty darned hilarious.....*chokes...
Whether he can in turn buy his way out of this mess is immaterial, as he is now permanently tainted....*grins...
All speculation of course, but you begin to get an idea of the enormous Baksheesh Bonanza that is now available in the Zone and beyond, and why Earl Barnabas was so happy to involve his Government contacts in this project....*chuckles....
If you have been following my ramblings closely *winks at Bali.... you may recall how at some point during 2004 we were treated to a veritable rash of uninvited visitors?
Back then there was a drive on for residents to sign up with Blue Security? *grins at the so eloquent Ravi....Before your time methinks?
Anyways, we had already had I guess, 4 instances of intruders to our property and had finally signed up for a panic response option..
It was raining hard the night of Wednesday 22nd December 2004, as the GameWrecker sat watching TV and I, no doubt struggled in a #trivia channel online. *grins...
I have previously blogged how I heard the thud as an intruder jumped down into our back courtyard, and the chaos that ensued...
How despite repeated attempts at persuading our visitor to leave, he declined?
I was only ever afforded one clear glimpse of him during the evenings excitement, but have looked for him everywhere since then....*smiles...
He had been infuriated when I finally managed to get him with a shot from my toy pellet gun...an almost impossible feat as he rarely moved out from under the eaves of the house...
I had been immediately contrite, back then, and had murmured 'nkosiyame' (sp), but in his rage he had smashed the window nearest him and asked me why I shot him and THEN expressed sympathy....
Not long after that the Cavalry arrived with our ex-CPF Chairman in the lead... the SAPS guys were the last to arrive (*cackles) and took the guy away saying he would be arrested and charged because he had smashed the window...
You remember how I was told that the intruder had a nasty looking lump on his head? Which led me to believe he had been forcefully persuaded to terrorize us? *wipes tears of laughter from it's eyes.... a fertile imagination indeed...*grins...
And it came to pass that we did indeed meet again...*beams...
There he was, up the ladder last Friday the 5th October 2007 at 12.24pm (see previous blog "the Struggle"), repairing the 'faulty' line on the now vandalized Pervert's Wireless box pole in the valley...*applauds....
Although he seemed vaguely familiar, it was only after I had the zoomed-in pictures printed that the penny finally dropped....*cackles...
Added to the fact that he was one of the very few unsmiling Telkom techs I have met in this Game, and that he took great care to keep his face behind the pole as I snapped merrily away, it was clear that he was unhappy to be photographed for posterity....*beams....
So, although much of his face is obscured, the golfball sized cyst/lump on his forehead makes him easily recognizable as the Star of the Show back in December 2004...*laughs....
The photos show the date and time they were taken, making it a simple matter to put a name to the face....
Will I take it further? *looks at the vastly amused Toby van Heerden of Overport Telkom....
Nope - why would I? The young man was certainly not acting independently and it wasn't exactly a funfilled evening he had in the end, back then...
I would merely hope that should he be sent to do further work on our poles, he grants me a smile at the least...*cackles...
I am well aware that the Wednesday night could have ended in tears. That he could have gained access to the house itself and done more than just scare us.. as in the case of the intruder sent to Rajie's house all those years ago... resulting in both she and Sarushen being shot with their own firearm.
No such unpleasantness occurred to us. Whether or not Toby van Heerden was aware of this little visit matters not. May I suggest that he speaks kindly to this young puppet employee and reminds him that smiling at the toad will not turn him to stone...*cackles...
Moving on.....
Captain Courageous is quick to utilise the spring rains ...*laughs... From the time I switched on the first light yesterday evening, it became clear he was treating us to constant dips on our system...
At 6.50pm a big dip all but cut the power and then the visible little dips continued all evening....*shakes it's head...
The rain? A fault on OUR system? *cackles loudly...
Well no - though the brilliant white flash as the toilet light blew at 4.30am this morning showed that he had made headway...*grins...
Minor irritations are, and always have been, the Heroic One's Speciality...*beams...
This morning it is dark and rains still, yet the lights are stable...not a dip to be seen.
He certainly does control every jackpoint in our house and in spite of this responsible position (or because of it?) he certainly surges our power at will.
As our power supply runs from the streetlights, I make it my business to inform the Manager of that particular Department, Rudolph Mhlope, of problems we experience.
Though fully aware of the monitoring, he is basically a kind man.
Is he unaware of mon Capitans abuse of power? Is he left out of the loop and take for a fool?
I'm guessing Rudi earned his Managerial position unlike many, and would be less than charmed to find his name associated with the Chicken Kings personal vendetta?
My Master of Bravery should perhaps spend more time perfecting his swing on the greens than his swing to our power supply? *cackles...
Having just been permitted to sent 68 individual texts to CPF Members without a hitch is quite astonishing...long may it last...*curtseys to der Kommissar...
The rain falls relentlessly here in the Zone. May you all stay safe...

PS: At 1.15pm the dead and skeletal mulberry tree just outside our valley wall, finally gave up the ghost, and with little more than a sigh, keeled over onto it's side....smack onto the phone line!..*grins... Serendipity? Fosho m'deahs.....
There was little Norman Knothead up the ladder just last Friday and now his services are already required again....*laughing....
Even my Controller has come home especially early to view the scene....*cackles... In spite of the cable now being stretched to it's screaming limit, I have had a remarkably clear phone line (apart from the sound of a fax constantly operating in the background) *winks at Bali....
May I suggest a power saw to simply remove the one branch hooked over the phone line? It's quick and the line will hopefully snap back up into place once freed? You're call of course....*beams...

Ends.....
