Not Just Me Then

March 4, 2011

Following from my post VSO IT Do It With Staples I am heartened to find this blog post from Ivo, a VSO volunteer in Zambia, using staples also for quality IT works.

You can see the differences between VSO Zambia and VSO Namibia when he refers to:

the VSO Approved Computer-Repair-Staple

In Namibia the paperclip remains the only fully-approved method of PC repair and staples are used entirely at your own risk.

Reading his blog though it’s sad to hear about some riots occuring close by (and about the evacuation of some VSOs in this post from Andrew).

Namibia borders Zambia along the Caprivi strip and I was there last year visiting Livingstone and Victoria Falls. Let’s hope it all calms down quickly.
