Strange change!greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
For the last 20 years our telephone company has always distributed the new phone books the month of January. This year they changed this distribution date to March due to the fact the printing company plans to upgrade their printing capabilities and won't be able to print and distribute the new books January 2000 so they decided it would be best to change the delivery date this year and keep March as the delivery date from now on. The company said the changes being planned by the printer was only a small part of the reason for the change...the main reason was the WEATHER! Maybe I am paranoid but this sure sounds funny to me ...afterall the weather for the last 20 years hasn't always been rosy. Go figure!

Won't matter to me because I won't have a phone to call anyone, so a phone book won't help me out at all.

Darn, I was hoping to get the new book in Jan, the middle of winter. Could use it to start many fires! <:)=

Ummm....don't laugh, but, doesn't the ink smear? If so, is this healthy?
