If 1/1/2000 happened this weekend...greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
Many of the more optimistic postings here seem to be based on the foundation that "enough" fixing and contingency planning will be done in the next several months so that 1/1/2000 will not be a large scale disaster ("10"), but rather something at least manageable ("4"ish). I'd like to ask everyone: If time were called this weekend, and the fixing/planning that you envision were not able to be done, how bad do you think that it would be? An absolute "10"? A "7"? (Note that this is probably the last chance to address this, what with Jo Anne Effect type problems coming in just a couple of weeks.) Thanks.
