A Cry for help!
Rodney Marks [email@example.com]
I'm currently wintering over at the Amundsen-Scott
South Pole Station in Antarctica. I've checked out your site
for the past few years, but this year it's especially valuable,
being as I am at the most poorly connected place no tele,
no radio, and even the satellite goes down about half way through
the second quarter, so I can't keep up with the commentary at
I have a question, which maybe
some of the ex-pats can answer. I want to get someone to video
tape the granny, and any other finals that might be telecast,
and have it sent down to me at opening. The catch is that, since
this is an American base with American VCRs, it has to be in
NTSC format. So it would probably have to be someone in
the US or Canada.
I would be very grateful for
any help you could provide, or any of the ex-pats. Even though
my team bombed this year (I won't embarrass myself by naming
the Melbourne satellite city in question), I really miss home
and especially the footy in September, so it would be fantastic
to see some of the finals action, even if it is a couple of months
Anyone who can help would be
suitably reimbursed of course, either in moolah or south pole
[Darryl: Can anyone assist
here, It would be great to find someone who could send a NTSC
tape down to this guy with a few of the finals matches on it.]
