Like a relay runner left without a teammate to hand the baton, the Salt Lake Organizing Committee began a furious search for a technology partner to replace both Quokka and Logictier as the clock continued to count down.

On broadcast TV, NBC has hit a home run with "The Weakest Link"—a top-rated quiz show differentiated from most in the genre by a brutal pace and an acerbic host.
