Well, uh, durrrrrhhh...

WECT Wilmington, North Carolina just broadcast a how-to-find-out-more-information about Y2K.

I couldn't see the tv screen (my family moved "dad's hobby" up in the loft), but it sounded like an every day community service announcement.

The jist is (my interpretation), "If you have questions about Y2K, here's a number you can call 1-888-???? .... And they have a website at www.y2k.gov where you can get information."

It was a simple introduction, and quite appealing to the ear - not urgent, not perky.

Locally, in Wilmington, NC, this may be turn out to be the way we, my community, generally educate ourselves about Y2K.

That being said (my representational system is auditory, so I'm talking out loud as I type), I guess I should be able to call that number and browse that web site to find out what's going on in Wilmington and how I can connect with, get involved in my community?

I mean, getting involved face-to-face is what this is about, isn't it?

Ain't it amazing what missing a keystoke will do. Hmmm?....

... 'cause then you end up having to REALLY LOOK to see how missing that keystroke results in unexpected consequences.
