Glad you liked it. Y'all should enjoy, especially the features.

Good job - you've surprised me again.

-- Robert A. Cook, PE (Kennesaw, GA) (, February 09, 1999.

Yeah, well, Declan, you may have a great site and all, but your book reviews really make me wonder...

Not only is this novel Don Tiggre's first, but it's by far the best of the Y2K novels to date. In Y2K: The Millennium Bug (Don L. Tiggre, 1998), the crisis hits early and hard,

This book in its totality is absolute garbage: obvious, badly written, sophomoric in plot and content, flat in characterization, it contributes no new information about y2k, and will find it only use as bird cage lining. But since you'd have to spend time ripping out all the pages for that, stock up on paper towels, save your newspapers and give this book a pass. I would say: this isn't writing, it's typing but that would be too kind. Yuck!

"Americans are sick and tired of lurid tales of AR-15-toting survivalists preparing for Y2K Armageddon. Instead, the media should focus on the nitty-gritty of whether local electric utilities and 911 services will be up-and-running come 2000."

So the TIME article was a mistake, then? Have you forwarded these poll results to the wunnerful folks who produce that truly excellent magazine?

Interesting. Haiku too? Hummm. (FRL alert).

About 80% of your articles ARE good. That Time Magazine "Millennium Madness" still rankles though.

Thanks, folks. Glad you like our site.

As you know from the "written by" note, I didn't write the Tiggre review at (though I do think it's a good book, better than the other y2k novels. it has been nominated for an award, i believe)

-- Declan McCullagh (, February 09, 1999.

I'm still foaming at the mouth over that Time issue. Your name associated with it makes it impossible for me to see you as anything but a wannabe. You seem to understand Y2K sometimes, at other times you make Paul Davis appear like a hardcore. Your site reflects that.

"Y2K A to Z" is worth a fruitcake mention from the FRL.

"Panic of the past" is worthy of Time Magazine.

-- Chris (, February 09, 1999.

Heck, if you liked everything I did, I'd be pretty scared. I hardly expect to please everyone. But I'm glad you're interested enough to read the stuff in the first place.
