Another resignation for you to consider: "Stillman to resign from FGIPC". The entire text of the article follows the link...
Neil Stillman has said he plans to resign as president of the Federation of Government Information Processing Councils, which oversees more than a dozen groups that deal with information technology issues.
In a Jan. 12 e-mail to FGIPC officers and the board of directors, Stillman, deputy assistant secretary for information resources management at the Department of Health and Human Services, said he was submitting his letter of resignation because he plans to retire from the federal government April 30. He said James Buckner, recently appointed chief information officer for the Army Materiel Command, would become acting FGIPC president on May 1.
"I leave the organization structurally and financially more stable than I found it," Stillman wrote.

Too spooky, Kevin. *Another* replacement from the Military. Don't be complacent, folks; it's adding up.

Have to agree with Leska - curiouser and curiouser - especially the military angle. Keep running that search Kevin, it's paying off!!!
Two digits. One mechanism. The smallest mi$take.
"The conveniences and comforts of humanity in general will be linked up by one mechanism, which will produce comforts and conveniences beyond human imagination. But the smallest mistake will bring the whole mechanism to a certain collapse. In this way the end of the world will be brought about."

Humm. Just in time for the National Guard "exercises." And we have an ex-DoD guy at FEMA now, appointed by the President, coordinating terrorism and Y2K activities. Interesting. -- Diane
