Also...CK wants to point out that AUSTAR is based in Ultimo (actually
about 50 metres away from Building 10 -- that's about two or three
stone-throws, dependent on how far you can throw) and if you're really
into the technical aspect of television and broadcasting like he is, this
job would be worth considering.

...and he also wants me to send this as well:
