Haven't seen Diane posting, anyone know what happened to her?

-- Curious (Curious@dunno.com), December 21, 1998


5. Discovered y2k problem with her crystal, is on the way back from Himalayas with a new one.

4. Found out that, hey, you CAN make money selling y2k preparation!

3. Eloped with Chittum, is hoping if she lays low, hubby won't notice till after 2000.

2. Decided that y2k has become passe, is hanging out at a Save the Whales site with whale sympathisers who "get it"

and the number one reason:

1. Became mesmerized by her daughter's furby and is now trying to talk Ed Yourdon into translating the forum into Furbish.

Didn't she write that she is preparing a big piece on global y2k agricultural sufficiency measures, to appear in Cory Hamasaki's Y2K D C weather reports ? Probably best not to let that info leak out in dribbles.

Maybe she fell out of one of those trees she's prone to lurking about in wearing her "Robin Hood' disguise.

I suspect she might very well have a non-y2k type reason for being posted as MIA. She had something else to do?

Did you ever hear the saying about looking a gift horse in the mouth? Hee Hee

She is around... she posted to the Know Your Fruitcake thread this morning. This is evidence that she also knows her priorities too. (wink)

Good grief guys!

Doing some Y2K web-search homework (found some interesting stuff) and it's Christmas!

Diane, have you discovered anything credible to make us all relax, be happy, not worry about Y2K? Have you found evidence of 'the fix'? Or did you find evidence it's really gonna be bad, no matter what? Anything earth-shaking?

I think we should give her a separate forum. She's got good ideas.

There's my 2 cents.


-- Larry Olney (taxman@kincyb.com), December 22, 1998.


I suggest you cultivate relaxing, do your best to be happy, and prepare homes, neighbors and communities to create local solutions for Y2K. Worrying doesnt solve anything except increase the stress syndrome. Rather like whirring on an endless treadmill.

The evidence of 'the fix,' is us, not just the computers. Looks like it will be bad and good and inbetween, depending on ones location and perspective. Simplicity within complexity works for me.

Earth-shaking? Humm. Volcanoes are certainly becoming more active globally. My guess is they are linked to peoples emotional scale of getting it and reflect the level fear and anxiety increasing. That energy is destructive rather than constructive.

Challenges, challenges. Choices, choices.

Glad you're back!

Let us into your secret when the time's right.

-- Richard Dale (rdale@figroup.co.uk), December 22, 1998.

I thought something terrible had happened to you. I am glad you are back.

-- Linda A. (adahi@muhlon.com), December 22, 1998.

I thought maybe you found a job!

Diane, my dear, I'm fine, was simply asking, sorta humorously, what sort of things you had found in your research retreat. There certainly is an increase in volcanic activity, also several moderate earthquakes per day. It has been interesting watching some of the earth events correlate to locations experiencing emotional upheaval first. You'd think there'd be a big one under DC, but they're so staged & jaded there, no real emotions, so the ground sleeps on. We're prepared 90% now, thanks to lots of bargain sales this month, so we're in a comfortable space just trying to imagine localities and their various pros/cons -- a constructive way to have the mind think about Y2K possibilities without getting worried. :) :)

Diane, Ive been reading your posts for months --but I still can't tell for sure if you were joking about the "volcano anxiety" thing.

-- Dave (dwood@southwind.net), December 22, 1998.


Actually I'm not joking about it. That and earthquakes too. Im really wondering about the weather patterns as well. Im thinking our world is more of a biofeedback system than we acknowledge.


Check out the Seismic Monitor http://www.iris.washington.edu/seismic/60_2040_1_8.html

The display is updated every 30 minutes using data from the National Earthquake Information Center. Earthquakes that have occurred within the last 24 hours are shown with red circles. The circles fade through orange to yellow within 15 days. After 15 days, the circles are replaced by light purple dots that remain on the map for five years. The distribution of seismicity over the past 5 years demonstrates how earthquakes define the boundaries of tectonic plates, and the relationship between topography and seismicity. The Earths shadow illustrates day/night and seasonal changes.

Click in the center of a circle and a list of all events will appear with the event you selected highlighted in yellow and events within 10 degrees of that event highlighted in white. Events that are 6.0 and greater are linked to special information pages that try to explain the where, how and why that particular event occurred. Click on an individual seismic observatory (shown by the purply colored triangles) to bring up a station information page.

Heh...plus drought, meteors, and solar flares...I might start getting nervous.

and the winterized fire ants...and the africanized killer bees...and the flesh eating bacteria...and the penicillin resistant TB...and that we're adding to the overpopulation problem by a city the size of San Fran every day...and that Mickey D's opens three new cow patty shops every 24 hrs...and that we deforest an area the size of.......etc. etc.
