World full of morons and idiotsgreenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
I am a computer expert for a state agency and I know you are all morons.
If you all really think there is a problem then why are you all not fixing it?
You morons don't have a clue! Go on waste your money stocking up on food that will spoil anyway.

If you are such a computer expert, why did you post the same question twice? Peddle it somewhere else, sister.

That question needs to be asked a thousand times... once for each idiot who think the world is coming to an end on 1/1/00.
Go peddle somewhere else yourself, all of you Y2K cultists!! I hear there are some new openings in Jeruselam now that the psychos from Denver are gone.

Linda, thank you for your interesting post. May I ask which state you are employed by? I just want to be sure I don't live in it.

What makes you an expert? I've been a professional programmer since 1968. I may be an expert at ASSEMBLY language, but my working knowledge of COBOL, FORTRAN, BASIC, C++, JAVA, SQL, CICS, etc doesn't qualify me as an expert. So, please tell us, why are you an expert?

Naa, wait a minute. Y'all are being too hard on this individual.
This person has geven us the *best* example I've seen on this board yet of making an assertion in thier Title Line and then proceeding at a quick pace to prove themselves in the text of their post.
I sure don't think I could do any better.
- Got proof?

It must be getting close to the weekend! Sorry private joke.

Right on sister, This forum is frequented by a bunch of scared sissies. They say they know...they know nothing. Tell them the sun doesn't rise tommorow and they freak out. Reminds me on stoneage tribes in Africa.

The amazing part of this post, is that she probably does represent a state agency. But I know it is not my state, as they have not created a "Ministry of Propaganda", not yet at least. Welcome to 1984 Linda, now get a life. John Galt

I'm a computer expert too. Push the button this way and it goes on, then you can do stuff. Push the button that way and the thing goes off. Easy to figger!

Linda, maybe you should refrain from posting around this time every month

I have been instrumental in having threads like this ZAPPED. Maybe you should go to another forum and test the waters there.

With all due respect, if a few disturbing posts are enough to run you off I don't think you are going to thrive if Y2K comes down hard. Then you will be dealing with the worst of human nature, but without a modem buffer.
I am not trying to be rude, just realistic.
