How to assess Fortune 500 compliance + Some Hard Infogreenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
Howard Belasco of Westergaard 2000 has a new article out called "Assess". It gives some tips on how to interpret SEC 10-Q filings, and then goes on to summarize the latest work of Robert Egan. Mr. Egan has done a lot of work on extracting information from the SEC 10-K/10-Q disclosure reports available at the Yahoo! or Edgar sites.
"Assess" by Howard Belasco is a must read!
Much of Howard's article deals with what companies are saying about their anticipated completion dates for remediation, both IT and embedded. It does not cover testing.
I strongly suggest you check out Howard Belasco's article yourself. But I will post some of the information here.
Announcing completion: May Department Stores, McDonald's, The Limited, Venetar (was Woolworth's), Consolidated Stores.
Joining Chevron (will miss 12/31/99): Nash Finch, U.S. Office Products.
Actually "moved up" their dates:
AMR 98/12/31 (was 99/03/31)
TransAmerica 99/03/31 (was 99/06/30)

Good work Kevin!
Gonna focus on the .gov sites for awhile, and will get back to this.
So much to search, so little time...

That was a Typo. iIt should not read "assess" but rather "Asses" with Howard's picture prominently displayed.

Did Paul Milne post the last message, or was that a troll? Paul types and spells better than that.
