By the way, FoRK lost two and gained two this week. We're balancing the
flow and harnessing our chi... sorry to lose the two though. I think
this week was a record breaker for traffic, so I totally understand.
We've earned a day of rest...
The 2000 Summer Olympics began here Friday night, in a city that can now kick back and watch the athletes following its own multi-year marathon of dodging cement mixers, road closures and security drills as the city geared itself up for the microscopic attention of 3.5 billion television watchers.
During a nearly hour-long procession of nations, a somewhat sheepish American software billionaire Bill Gates -- hidden in the stands somewhere -- was caught momentarily on the stadium's massive television screen waiving a flag for the U.S. team. The crowd roared in celebrity-welcoming approval.
Though Gates was cheering on his countrymen, he must have approved the way the Australians opened the Games with nary a glitch.
The best news out of Friday night was that all the toilets flushed, the power stayed on and the trains and buses ran on time.
