greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

first thank you to those who wrote about the compliant or tather noncompliant companies, I had a feeling it was this bad,

what I need now is the site where the 120 cities that are on the list for 'protection' by military types for terrorist or toxics or something,

the list at GN Martial Law site is no longer up, st least not at the address given, moved???

thank you all

It does not appear to have moved. Their Firewall is not allowing us in.

You should be able to simply put your cursor on the link on your screen and click to get to the page about the 120 Cities. If there is some reason why this doesn't work for you, the URL that you need to type into your browser is:

http://archive.abcnews.com/sections/us/DailyNews/terrorism_training041 7.html

O.K. Just got "the willies" big time. I tried to use the link provided by searcher. It worked. No problem. BUT, when I tried to scroll and actually read the thing, I was cut off. Bye-bye. No longer on-line. TWICE! What's in there?

Don't worry--I'm reasonably sure there's no shadowy conspiracy lurking behind your problem viewing this web page.

For one thing, the HTML code for the page has lots of tables within tables, which is the sort of thing that tends to cause web browsers to crash.

For another thing, when you click on a link within one of these threads, if you're viewing the thread from within Ed Yourdon's site, the link you clicked will be displayed within a frame within the main page. This is another thing that may make a web browser crash.

If you want to view the linked page separately from the yourdon.com site (this may answer Carrie's question as well), try right-clicking on the link (if you're using a Windows application) or clicking on the link (on a Mac) and holding down the mouse button. Depending on your web browser, you will probably see a little menu with options like "New Window with this Link" or "Copy this Link Location."

These will let you view the linked page in its own window, or copy the address of the linked page so you can paste it into a different window and go there directly.
