Purchase Electricity and Pay Fines Online CodeUnit 25 JAN 2011

I like doing my administrative things online. Who doesn’t? No more queues, frustrating tellers, being shunted from one desk to the other. And of the online services which I use the most here at home, buying electricity from the awesome payCity definitely ranks as right at the top of the pile!

From the same guys who came up with the original energy.co.za website, payCity links together a number of services for Cape Town and its Connected Citizens initiative, allowing you to pay your speeding fines, both local or national, pay your local “Rates and Taxes”, buy your prepaid electricity via the web or mobile (cellular) phone as well as renew your vehicle licence all from a single website!

Payments are done via credit card and the system works as smoothly as you would expect from any ajax-driven web 2.0 site.

Easy, simple to use and pretty damn efficient, the last time I have been forced to buy my electricity from the local Spar or petrol station was when I actually ran out of power!

Needless to say, this doesn’t happen any more! Nifty ;)

Cosplay Sundae: Plug Cryostat (Fight Ippatsu! Juden-chan!!) Cosplay 11 JUL 2010

You feeling a little down? A little depressed? Then you definitely need a great big jolt of electricity to cheer you up, courtesy of the phase shifting, electricity wielding Juden-chan plug girls of course! :)

Fight Ippatsu! Juden-chan!! is of course quite the strange anime/manga scenario you understand. Basically the premise revolves around Juden-chan (charger girls), females from a parallel planet known as “Life Core”, who patrol our human world in order to seek out any depressed or unlucky souls and charge these people up with electricity in order to improve their mental states. Of course, they are completely invisible to the human eye, but as every anime would have it, one lucky sod is just bound to develop the ability to catch them at their game!

Plug Cryostat is the main protagonist of this quirky show (which does tend to throw a lot of fan service at its viewers) and as luck would have it, a fair airhead it would seem. She possesses the ability to phase which naturally helps with her charging job and also has a secret love for a particular ecchi anime series called “Mille-chan”. Plug is different from other Juden-chan who normally focus simply on charging people and getting paid, instead opting to try and discover the root of the problem affecting a depressed person and timing her charges so that they don’t fall back in depression after everything returns to normal!

Today’s cosplay of the airheaded Plug Cryostat is delivered to us courtesy of 18-year-old Gravure model Miu Nakamura who fills out the infamous plug suit rather nicely as you can see. Plus, with props as electrifying as these, you really can’t tell her she isn’t doing an great job now can you? :P

For those really, really depressed people in life.

Miu Nakamura in a full length shot. For no particular reason mind you.
