Olympiad Blogging

Only a few days before I head off to snowy Siberia. While I am now reasonably confident I will (a) get there and (b) have a hotel to stay in, I'm not so sure about the real necessities of life ie net access and bandwith.
The best scenario is that there will be wi-fi available in the hotel/media centre/everywhere else and so I can keep blogging on a daily basis. The worst case is that none of this is available and the front page of this blog remains static for two and a half weeks. (That may be preferable btw, as you would be spared my pitiful whining over thrown away points and half points).
I am assuming that there will be live broadcasts of the games from the Olympiad, although the official website doesn't have a link to this as yet. In fact Khanty-Mansiysk is in a very friendly time-zone for Australia, with the 3pm round times translating to 7pm Australian Eastern Standard Time. So assuming there are no problems at the K-M end of the intertube, you should be able to watch most of the action at a very decent time.
