I rang 1800 500 864. Sam is apparently the "online technical editor" and
works for Fairfax (as oppossed to being a newbie subcontractor). The dude
on the phone was quite helpful, and informs me that Sam Varghese's boss is
Mike van Niekerk (mvanniekerk at f2networks.com.au).

I would expect better from an "editor".


PS: I'm going to go have a little lie down now. I think the stress of exam
week might be showing through the cracks...
