From Buddhists to Sikhs, through Muslims and Christians and everything in between, there are many good people out there and if you do not allow yourself to be swayed by petulant religious opinion, the world is an awesome place with the odd idiot in between trying to make it rubbish for others.

I doubt it. Our cable TV doesn't carry the games, and I have no idea where I will be able to stream any games free.

Also most of the games will take place while I am at work...  :-\

I am 6 hours behind y'all at the moment  :peepwall:

Sounds good! Send it to my email then I can just click the link on my laptop. Do you have my email? I'll WhatsApp it to you just in case  :biggrin:

It's been a long time since I watched a rugby game. I'll set my alarm. Then at 8 I start work...  :peepwall:

Would have to be fairly close friend since you effectively gets access to their dstv account. 5 devices can be added to an account but only 2 removed every six months, so it is not a quick chop and change to remove and add devices.

You don't need to add a device. I use my parent's account to stream supersport via the supersport website in a browser on my pc. It redirects you to dstv now as per the link below.

So I finally managed to watch SOME of the rugby this morning.

An incredibly trusting and generous WD sent me his log-in details for his DSTV jobbie. I used it and logged in, but I wasn't able to see anything. It seems that DSTV will not allow people in the USA to stream. So I thanked him, and logged out again so someone else could possibly use his extra log in. Thanks brother, truly appreciated.  :thumleft:  Pity it didn't work, I would have loved to watch Naas and the boys again take the game apart  :peepwall:  :imaposer:

Then Silvrav sent me a link that I got to work on my tablet. I woke up early, and after logging into channel after channel I finally found the game! I managed to see the last 10 minutes of the first half and all of the second half. Well, mostly. Because the channel kept buffering and cutting out and kicking me out. Apparently Japan had satellite issues or something? Anyways, it was good to watch the Boks play again after 3.5 years, even though they lost. Huimwee…

So last week the boss bought another Nissan van.

It's an older one than mine, and it has just a shade under 220 000 Miles on the clock. The outside is good, no crashes, but it had some issues; the drivers window didn't work, and the back of the van was pretty badly beat up, dented, scratched, dirty as all heck.

So this last week the new guy and I have been using any free time (usually after work) to get it sorted out. We took a wire brush on a angle grinder to the rust and cleaned I up as best as we could, then used a "rust converter" to treat what was left. It apparently turns rust back into steel or some-such witchcraft... then we painted on a self-etching primer, and finally a white top-coat. The floor of the van we painted with a rubberizing paint, similar to a bakkie liner.

I ordered a new mechanism for the driver's electric window. After stripping it out we found that the retaining bolts had come loose with the result that the metal parts had bent out of shape and jammed solid. The motor still worked fine. The mechanism arrived Thursday, and I collected it from the spares shop, and that evening we installed it. Now the window works perfectly again.

So the boss also wanted it fitted out just like I fitted mine out. The plan was to bring the van to my house Saturday morning where I had all the necessary tools and stuff and get it done. So after the rugby was done I had a quick shower and opened up the workshop. Rick (the new guy) arrived dead on time at 8:30 and we got to work. I had already planned out how we would build the wooden shelving for the plastic parts bins, how we would cut the sheets of plywood for minimum wastage. I had also already written out a "shopping list" of stuff we needed from Home Depot, so we got into the "new" van and headed over to Home Depot.

We bought the supplies we needed, and took them back to my place. The first order of the day was to make hardboard side panels for the inside of the van. I had some left-overs lying around taking up space in my shed, so instead f buying more we used them. First pic is of Rick attaching the completed panels to the side of the van. These will stop stuff from falling down into the sides of the van and getting lost for ever.

Then we gave the panels a good coating of the left over rubberizing to protect them from splashes and the odd washing of the inside of the van.

Next up was to build the shelves. I had worked out that with careful cutting we would only need two sheets of plywood for the entire shelf. Both sides, and all 11 shelves... At $35 per sheet that saved the boss a bit of cash. I used my new workbench to help build the shelves, it was a good baptism for it. I found one or two small issues that I need to address, but nothing major. Just some fine-tuning  :biggrin:

After completing the shelves we installed them, and then re-installed the original steel shelves back on the left side. But instead of plastic grommets and kak we used proper bolts and Nyloc nuts so that they would be stronger and not rattle or come loose. Finally we installed a single sheet of OSB plywood on the floor to absorb the daily bumps and scratches etc. It's just wedged in with a couple of cut-outs where it fits under the wooden shelf so that it can't slide or move, but makes it easily removeable when it gets worn out. Replacement will be easy too, and the sheet of 9mm OSB was only $8. Cheap way to protect the rubberizing and the floor.

We were finally done at 5:30, and Rick left. I had a quick shower because I had been sweating a lot and I was dirty, then I poured a lekker brannewyn & coke and relaxed.  8)

Tomorrow I have all the normal chores to do, like mowing the grass and weed eating, cleaning up and tidying the workshop, cleaning the house, phoning my mom and my son in SA, and a few other "honey-do's" that I'm sure Mrs Zog has in store for me. Typical Sunday... Lekker  :ricky:

Great work, Mr Zog... you could do fitting out of vans as a side-line !  :thumleft:

So who gets to benefit from your handiwork - Boss Man or New Guy?  :sip:

Download the app 'UK TV and Radio'. You can watch the games on there. I did it yesterday from my phone and it worked well.

The games are shown on ITV. There is also an ITV +1, incase you can only watch an hour later.
