My first Y2k meeting : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

I just attended my first Y2k meeting. Sad ! A gentleman presented Ed's powerpoint presentation so fast the slides were a blur. He took no questions. Said we could submit them in writing. It gets better. The other guest was from a local alarm company. Her pitch was that their alarms had an 18 hour backup battery rather than just a 12 hour one. Sad, Sad, Sad. Many in attendance seemed more aware than the speakers.
