It's the countdown to the Sydney 2000 Olympics, and the Head of Administration and Logistics, John Clarke, and his colleagues, Bryan Dawe, Head of Accounts, Budgeting and Finance, and Gina Riley, Marketing and Liaison Manager wish everyone to know that everything is running smoothly. Certainly, the running track is not actually 100 meters, allowing Bryan to break the world record - but we can always put a bend in it, that's no problem. And 30% of the athletes and their sponsors may refuse to come because of the new fool-proof drug test - but that's a small price to pay to be known as the the very first drugs-free Olympics. And as for the rumours about the recently deceased IOC VIP dying in a King's Cross brothel - nonsense. That's just media hype. As are the rumours that the fencing may be dropped because there aren't enough venues or that the la crosse centre isn't actually built yet. In future may we suggest you not believe everything you see on television? Written by

At least Australians *have* decent comedies, albeit sporadically
Well, hey, at least the Australians *get* worthwhile television programming.
For the life of me, I can't think of one American comedy series in the past 15 years that's been any good at all (any mention of the alleged comedy series know as "Seinfeld" gets the mentioner a metaphorical boot to the head.)
A region-free DVD player purchase is definitely in the near future. This is so I can watch "The Games" and "Mother and Son." "One Foot in the Grave" is also on the shopping list. Victor Meldrew is THE MAN.
