No need (or permission - everybody has viewer status) to update the spreadsheet. Also, I noticed late last night that wikipedia has a stub for the medal table (one entry: Japan with zero medals). The spreadsheet and the pinkmeeple website are both using that currently. If a better site is identified (e.g. official Olympics site) that can easily be imported to the spreadsheet, I'll switch to that. Otherwise, I think we're good to go, and just in need of some extra eyes to verify that the data is correct.
As far as posting standings to this thread, that's just a matter of copying the blue table (columns Z-AC) and pasting them here. Anyone can do that. I'll try to do it by noon PDT which should be valid through the previous day. If anyone else also wants to post (for instance, at other times), that's fine by me.
