If its Thursday, it must be the end of the world day.

So today starts with a phone call to the SARS eFiling Help line. It is because I found I could not pay SARS. When I went to the banking details page, I was asked all the usual questions. Account name, number etc. But then I got to a field that asked 'Group Number'. Group Number? Not name? [Beatles would have been my first choice.] 

I tried various numbers starting with one, only to have an alert box pop up and say; "Make sure you enter the correct group number." So that isn't going to work...

After phoning the helpful lady at the helpdesk, I was told that this only supplied by the banks. Why? And why isn't there a message on the page to say; "Get this from your bank." 

Having switched on the main PC, Adobe pops up to say that yet another patch/fix/update is needed for 'Flash'. This then brings up Firefox with the update page.

Whilst I am writing this, the Adobe downloader is struggling to get to 100%. It is at 29% now. Maybe it will finish later today. Unfortunately I may have to unplug the phone line before then as the clouds are getting darker...

Ok, Adobe's downloader has failed. I was going to put a pic here of the web page. With a warning about the Macafee virus but the insert image page has failed to load three times now...

Maybe I shall finish this later...

Make sure you don't have that "optional offer" box ticked...
