Now how did a 'Hard Head Farmer Son' get a soutie name like 'Peter Connan' ??
Simple David
My great-grandfather was a scott who settled in the Northern cape. He opened a trading store about 100 miles south of Upington. In those days and that area he had to learn Afrikaans quickly to survive!

Hmmmm.. interesting thread this! I must admit that I did not scrutinise the forum rules in any detail when I joined, so I reverted to my "normal" forum habits (I belong to m-a-a-a-a-a-n-y fora) when posting! :redface:

I normally tend to post technical or reference posts in an internationally understandable language (i.e. English), but reply to Afrikaans threads or witty banter (soos in "twak praat") in Afrikaans...

I sincerely hope that's not a dismissible offense? I've grown to like the forum and its members! :biggrin:

Thank you kindly Mr P/ter Connan - you have worded my sentiments exactly. Only difference, my dad was Irish [and so am I ] thus, I would spell HardeKOP Boerseun a little different.
The Dutch have a bilingual approach - http://leo4x4.forum2go.nl -
But as Grant pointed out - "Rules are rules" and Rules rule, right? - so i will try and do the techno stuff in Ingrish and the funnies sal maar moet Afrikaans bly.
