Hello and welcome,

Today we do this for the first time, and the topic is :
COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD

Here are the 3-letter abbreviation, which is actually the Codes for the Representation of Names of Countries, prepared by ISO (International Organization for Standardization). ISO also includes the 2-letter codes, used as the Internet Country code by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) to establish country-coded top-level domains (ccTLDs).
I just give here the codes of countries where English is the mother tongue:
AUS * GRB * USA * CAN * VGB * VIR * HKG * IRL * NZL * SGP * ZAF
Give me the fullname of the countries, then choose 1 or more country/ies to write about. OR give the 3-letter code of a specific country, then its full name, together with an introduction about that country.
You have up to 1 month ( post before 00h00 GMT 26 July August 2004). Once again thanks for your joining and goodbye for now.

Yours,
Pirate
