As someone learning taekwon-do, this particular Winter Olympics has special significance in that - assuming it's not just a "long game" ploy by Kim Jong-Un - there's some real indications that North and South Korea may not always be mortal enemies.

It's quite interesting seeing how excited a lot of the people Jem and I are acquainted with about this. I doubt it'll come to much, but it'd be pretty cool if it did.

Yes teletekst is actually still sort of widely used here, via the iPhone app or the website that is... it's just very fast and still has for this sort of result the best editorial people


And 'duitsland' (germany) has passed us again.. sort of inevitable since they compete in many more sports...

Wait, Teletext (I prefer your name - the word 'teletekst' looks a bit cooler) through a smartphone app... a collision of worlds, old, modern :blown:

So you're telling me the able Dutch people who somehow claimed a big chunk of the ocean to plant tulips, still use teletext?

Yup, i think it was one of the first apps i installed on my phone;) just for reliable data, like football scores, obscure sports (like the live scores of the dutch baseball league) there is not a faster alternative, as long as they keep funding the people entering the data...

So... it's an internet service? Not actual Teletext? Seems unusually restricted for no good reason

It looks deliciously retro. That's a plus.

On the ‘what is a sports discussion’. Mr T likes curling. That makes it a sport imo
