Reports of Y2K failures on the rise


" With 2000 nearly upon us, a survey of 110 U.S. corporations, 12 federal, state and local government agencies, and 12 industrial sectors found that a large number of the respondents have experienced Year 2000-related failures, and nearly all of them -- 98% -- expect more such failures in 1999."

The quarterly survey was conducted by Cap Gemini America, a Y2K consulting and services provider.

"The report found that every company is now developing contingency plans to prepare for expected failures.

In a similar study done in April, only 3% were putting together such plans."

"More than half of the respondents -- 55% -- have already experienced a Year 2000-related computer error.

This figure is up from 44% in October and 40% in July, according to Cap Gemini."

(Rev 18:10 KJV) "Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come."

(Rev 18:11 KJV) "And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:"
