Each day during the 2011 Sydney TC meeting, an emailed Dayzine miraculously in delegate’s inboxes. The Dayzine, in the form of a broadranging travelblog, formed amorphously in response to the types of questions that out-of-towners often ask, like
- “what did that shopkeeper just say?”
- “do I tip?”
- “why is it raining?”
- “how do you catch the bus?”
and my favourite
- “Huh? What’s a Tim-Tam?”.

The result of all this reading was a serious number of Tim Tam converts, regarded as an achievement of itself. The size, texture, composition and phase of a Tim Tam are all potential elements of a SMPTE standard, although the ways in which one might be dunked has progressed no further than Recommended Practice.
