A Chilling Reminder From Cory Hamasaki Todaygreenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
If you don't know who Cory is check out this link:-
Latest thoughts on the "problem"... "We are watching the collapse of a technological civilization. The falsehoods, hopes, dreams, cluelessness, promises, marketing hype, none of it matters.
Does the code work? Will the code work? Can the broken code be fixed in time?
It doesn't; it won't; and there isn't enough time left to fix the essential systems.
Some of us believe in a few hours or couple days outage. It won't be like that. Large systems will break and it will take years to repair or rebuild them. Major corporations will fail.
Stating otherwise is hoping against hope.
What flows from that? Chaos or a realignment where the few functional entities capture the marketplace?
Stay tuned, this ride will be like nothing you or I have ever imagined. People will die, fortunes will be made, this is an adventure and in a hundred years, they will still be studying this event."

Just finished reading it before coming here; it was just a post to the comp.software.year-2000 newsgroup. I think Andy has included the full text of the post.
