The SIA Street test was a failure: the news blackout is the first clue... the whispers from insiders in NY is the second,...check back through the old DC Y2K WRPs, the superprogrammer's grapevine hasn't missed yet. Read Dilbert, geek to geek, speak in the code of the geeks, what's really going on? The NYSE is about to take a hit in the machine check handler and HIR will be UNsuccessful. The message is, "HIR FAILED, SYSTEM ENTERING WAIT STATE."

Everyone knows the Stock Market is artifically propped up and I do not believe there is anyway it is going survive at this level for long even without Y2K. I have no holding in the SE but if I did I'd be out! It's one of the worse problems though. '29 was nothing compared to a crash now. Look how many, many more people depend on the earnings from their investments! d

What the heck is this talking about? Someone please decode it.

It means that the Wall Street tests (SIA)failed, as reported by inside programmers, word of mouth, rather than being the success the media noted.

I never believed those tests went as well as reported. I heard several reports that there were "glitches." Read that whole page from Cory Hamasaki. It will scare the pants off you.
