  1. Pyeongchang 2018 Ceremonies

    If it's being used for the Athletes' Parade, maybe they have found that walking in a large circle on a sloping surface affects people's balance for a day or two- so the South Korean team will secretly practice walking round it in both directions beforehand ...

    It's still very much a work in progress, probably because they have been bringing in heavy machinery for various purposes, which might have chewed up wooden flooring. That framework to the right of the performance circle suggests that there's more sloped flooring to come.
  3. Given that, as a matter of apparent policy, the USA is not hosting any Olympics, Summer or Winter, for a period of more than two decades since 2002, it was becoming rather nonsensical to claim that America is hosting too much.

    Looks like all the lights are going to end up in boxes too !

    A symmetrical arrangement of two groups of three flagpoles in front of the presentation stage. Will there be two flag-raisers, or a flag-raiser one side and a robot the other?

    That would probably screw up international sport in general. Solidarity over politics is one thing; solidarity over blatant cheating is quite another (though there may need to be some rule changes about accepted medication for asthma etc.).

    And so he did, nicely timed for African and European evening news bulletins. As announcements go, it was .... interesting.

    Wind by itself would not have been a problem, because big modern LED screens are mostly hole, with LEDs every 3cm or so. However, it has occurred to me that LEDs don't run hot enough to melt snow, therefore in winter they will need to be enclosed in an insulated and heated box- and that in turn does create massive wind resistance, so the boxes and their supports have to be really strong ...

    That's a very chunky box for a modern flat screen- I wonder if it will include other functions.

    Have you tried the Venues thread?

    Or rather, last survivor of the losing side. Looks like there's going to be a strong emphasis on not blowing each other up between now and February.
  12. Thank you and Goodnight...

    But if it's your last post, how will you be able to tell us what the DVD does about the stuck-cauldron problem?

    Not quite the last time ...

    What puzzles me is the triangle of floor to the right of the two men. That looks to me like a pretty significant slope down towards the centre of the arena.
