Software CEO says "No Problem"greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
Any one want to take a shot at answering this guy. He's CEO of a Houston-based software firm.

IMHO he doesn't have a clue!

His entire line is that he's unhappy because people bought software solutions that only addressed Y2K. If they'd waited, he would have been happy to sell them HIS software.
I love the line, "are, or should be," referring to programs being remediated. We can all agree that the software should have been remediated by now. All that it took would have been reasonably astute management, recognizing the problem when it first surfaced, and fixing it. Didn't happen, which is why there is a crisis now.
The man's trying to sell snake oil.
