projection is US$6.58 billion just to fix the US insurance industry.. : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

er, the url is too long for the software...sorry about the carriage return:

...I just wonder if anyone has bothered to total up all these billions of dollars being spent on y2k - interesting in terms of how it will refocus a significant amount of funds through a portion of the population (IT geeks and such) which doesn't normally wield that much direct financial influence...

The link ( above ) seems to be no good. A search of the MS site produces no matches on "mfx" and/or "millennium master."

You don't indicate whether this is a PC/mainframe tool. I'm presuming it's PC since MS is "endorsing" it.

Double-check that link? If it's a frame site, right-click in the frame and open it in a new window to see/copy the "real" URL.

Just a gentle reminder: There is no "Y2K-silver bullet" ...

It appears that the article got wiped already...hmm...and no I wasn't implying a 'silver bullet' fix...just that the costs keep spiralling upward...the old bit about "a billion here, and a billion there, and pretty soon you're talking real money".
