Akachi: that was the best i could get at present will see if i can get what you have requested, but chances are you'll have to work with the comprehensive one.
JC: i will be checking my emails periodically if there is anywhere where there is some ambiguity please email and raise the alarm for prompt assistance.
please ensure to email Victor all the necessary by tonight so that when he gets to the office at 6am he can finalise the MBL915 and upload by 12, before he travels.
so Mr.Hove forward all the comments to Victor before you go to sleep tonight and lets be patient with the guys they might not meet the proposed deadlines, however I shall make sure to keep reminding them to submit.
Shungu wanted to know about our live meeting in Jozi, i think we will discuss this in detail at next week's meeting.
i assume everyone has had an opportunity to look through the SOW, any comments?
Iam sorry Cde Chair, guys i still feel the MBL15 needs anaalysis please refer to the paragraph i refered above. Iam sorry to take u aback
Sorry, i was confused whether to reply here or not. Kindly lets reply to posts/thread on time.
On the MBL915 Assignments, i understand ALL your comments. Hove, as Jeremiah has promised to do, kindly put all your comments/edits/suggestions and send to me via email tonight. I will be in the office from 6am tommorrow to work on this assignment and upload before i travel.
i have attached the budget speech please if you require any more information let me know so i can avail it promptly. we, myself and Hove, wish to have the assignment uploaded by the 29th so please work with us accordingly so we can achieve this.
its more of practical than theory, may have to look at the deadline again.
Agreed Akachi. The deadlines are too tight to be honest.

the actual deadline for submission is on the 2nd of June the Tuesday when we are at study school.
the reason we proposed the 20th was because the 21st is a holiday so this would give us enough time to compile all your contributions and work on them with minimal work related distractions... so can we rather move it to the 21st noon CAT?
Akachi - - this is an aside: but can you pls check on Utang if she is online? If she is, we need to see her posts/replies. Kindly remind her to keep refreshing her page after every two minutes or so.
Shungu - - Are you online?
Guys i think the timetable is suitable taking into cognisance that our last day to be able to post the assignment EDS is the 29th according to the SOW. I think Friady the 30th might be the last day because Saturday we will be laeving to SA so we cannot post it
advise on where we can exercise some laxity, which deadline should we move forward? we will be available on email, so feel free to clog our emails should you have any premonition of doom...
we are not praying for doom, combining this stuff with work is quite challenging. we will try our best to beat the deadline
That fine Mr Ngwu. But if we extend it to the 22nd thats fine.Have all the other guys logged off?

Kago - I thought you would provide some leadership that ensures that we deliver on time. We need clarity on the timelines, that all dude!!!
Last edit: 08:23, 18 May 2009
what clarity do you require JC?
i guess we are done for the day. wishing everyone a very pleasant week ahead.
Kago - my point is on flexibility and clarity if the times can be moved. If not, well we have to comply mate.
i assume, we have all managed to browse through the 3rd Draft, any comments?
Sorry guys I have been slow in my review. however I have the follwoing points to make: 1. 32 PAGES looks like its too long to me? How many pages is the limit / target? 2. The SWOT analysis is weak - we may need to do a table and sum up key points. I can add some points on that.
We are required to deliver a minimum of 20pages with no clear limit. The current document is 26 real peages. Your suggestion about the SWOT analisis will be helpful. When will that come in?
l can submit my comments if there are any tomorrow l have problems with my yahoo today, l do not know why.--Shungunyoni 18:23, 17 May 2009 (UTC)
Akachi, Shungu, Taurai any comments? thanks Jerry for for the contribution.
it seems everyone else is quite happy with the draft Victor. please if you do not have any comments kindly state "no comments" so we know that we are on the same page and can progress quicker
I think if we utilise a table that will be a ploy to reduce the length of the assignment, however i do not think that will give us the opportunity to put an indepth analysis of the environment as expected. Lets just focus on improving the way it is. It might be the flow of the information which has a problem. I going through the draft while participating on Wiki so i do no have much to contribute.
Thanks Kaygo, i guess that will be all the comments from members on this. As a note i will be doing final edits, remove all notes unclaimed/without sources and hoping to do final upload by 12noon moro GMT.
Thanks to you all.
Akachi would like to know who is doing the QC on this assignment? Victor please advise; and remind him as well how the Wiki meetings structured...in terms of where to reply
Unfortunatly, i beleive that will still be me. I will do the best i can as i have done so far. Any comments so far on the QC?
just to confirm on the font size, spacing,referencing, etc
Kindly reply to this message immediatly you log in to this page to indicate your presence and readiness for this meeting. After saying your "Hello" kindly dont ever comment here again until the meeting comes to a close. Helloes should be said latest by 5minutes BEFORE the start of the main meeting discussions.
Please note that the main discussions will be in a seperate heading and to be started ONLY by the chair of this particular meeting.

Jeremiah & Victor how are you? Victor the attachment which i saw is an image. Have you seen that?
No Hove. If there was an image included, it should be a corporate one attached to all our mails but a Word document was also included. At least Shumi and Kaygo were able to download and has just sent me his comments.
