NO KWAI-YAN The Government has rejected a suggestion to set aside a working day to test computer systems for the Y2K bug.>> End snippet..................

"Set aside a DAY????" Oh my word......

Mr. K -

sure, it's easy! remember this is the same country that publicly announced last summer that power generation facillity that didn't get their remediation in place by last October 31st would result in 'special disciplinary measures' for the senior administrators of the site. S.D.M., of course being a euphemism for sending said administrators to a government slave labor camp.

one day? hey! I bet they've got everything certified by their own people by lunch time!

Remember the old story about the thief volunteering to teach the king's horse to sing...
