It’s been a fairly quiet few weeks on the loadshedding front, at least for us here at the htxt.co.za head office, but that could change going on Eskom’s latest tweet.

Eskom’s official account has tweeted that there’s a medium chance of loadshedding today, with a high probability of loadshedding happening tonight. So if your candle or gas stocks are low, consider picking some up and grabbing some fully-prepared food before heading home this evening.

This, despite Medupi’s Unit Six coming online recently and an extra 100MW added to the local grid through the KaXu solar power farm.

Deon got his first taste of PC gaming at the tender age of 11 when his father bought an 8088 XT, ostensibly to "help him with his homework". Instead, it introduced him to Leisure Suit Larry, King Graham, Sonny Bonds and many more, and Deon has been a PC gamer and hardware enthusiast ever since. He landed his first professional writing gig in 2006 at a prestigious local PC magazine, a very happy happenstance as he got to write for a living about things he loves - tech, PCs, gaming, and everything in between. He's been writing about it all ever since, and loves every minute of it.
