Chris you idiot : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

While reviewing old posts from last year (I'm bored with the current discussions), I've come across this post from Ed Yourdon in March '98, which explains in a nut shell why I don't buy anything Troll Maria (who's nowhere an expert herself) may claim about her company, or any other spin from Banks, gov. and big companies. I thought Ed's post might be helping in bringing things back into perspective. -- Chris (, February 23, 1999.

Chris this is why you are: a) one of the biggest butt heads (by my definition someone who throws flames without a point) and b) one of the stupidest (no definition needed) people on this forum. You have the dubious honor of falling into both categories. Your post (exemplified by the above quote) contain all emotion (butt head) and no technical (stupid) content.

Too bad youre bored with current discussions. I guess that goes to show your mental maturity.

I could give a rats butt whether you believe anything I have to say.

I have never claimed to be an expert, but do tell, oh exalted one, how many systems have you remediated?

You know nothing about spin. The post from Eddie is spin, he is trying to sell books. You couldnt see the truth if hit you between the eyes.

What perspective, moron? Old information about remediation efforts in March 1998. Weve come a long way baby. Why dont you wake up from your eleven month slumber?

Now now ladies - decorum, decorum :)

-- Andy (, February 23, 1999.

I would pay $50 to see them in bikinis, mud wrestling!!!!

-- King of Spain (, February 23, 1999.

Maria, calm down, have some chamomile tea, and tell us:

1. The name of the telecom company you work for, and

2. Documentation that they are 100% Y2K compliant.

Obviously we needn't know your name, but surely you can volunteer these two itsy bits of information? Go to a library computer if you're concerned with being traced. We'd all rest a lot easier knowing that things were under control, and we wouldn't remain so suspicious of your statements.

Troll Maria I've got something you need to read:

Click here

-- Get it today! (Not@fan.bigtime), February 23, 1999.

$75 if topless!!!

-- King of Spain (, February 23, 1999.

The $50 - $75 comments are the same types that would be gone in half a second if found out the women were over 35 - wouldn't even leave skid marks.

-- Debbie (, February 23, 1999.

-- Go go go (pow@pow.pow), February 23, 1999.

Now Maria,

Everyone is entitled to make idiotic statements in their Y2K "youth" or "old age," I have myself. We call that being human.

I have hopes that, you too, will spout some wisdom, upon occasion.

This is NOT one of those times.


-- Diane J. Squire (, February 23, 1999.

Please - now THAT's two good points you've got there; Get It Today - hilarious, and also another good point; you guys - shame on you, the women on this forum wouldn't stoop to such low, sexist remarks about you (except maybe La Troll herself), that's pretty juvenile; Debbie - very astute; Troll Maria - you've just wiped out what little bit of credibility you had remaining with me and many others on this forum. Calling people "butt-head" and "stupid" tells me someone identifies with Beavis and his friend.

-- Parental Old Git (, February 23, 1999.


Want a bet? I wouldn't trade my woman for a young'un at all. I think older women (my age) are way far and away better then teeny boppers.

"The $50 - $75 comments are the same types that would be gone in half a second if found out the women were over 35 - wouldn't even leave skid marks."

I'd take an older woman any (older) day!

-- Mark Hillyard (, February 23, 1999.

Mark, glad to hear it! Personally I find men aren't really interesting till they're over 35... My point, y'see Mark, you know the secret and don't have to plaster it all over the internet, like these guys who have to put playboy stickers all over their trucks to remind themselves what sex they are.

Felt good to get that out... ;-)

-- Debbie (, February 24, 1999.

"Personally I find men aren't really interesting till they're over 35.."

Debbie, you'd find me absolutely FASCINATIN'! (Maybe in an archeological way?) And KOS, my check's in the mail to you - just for the mental picture.

What? Huh? Oh.... Gotta go, the nice young lady is here with my medication.

-- Lon Frank (, February 24, 1999.

Jeez Lon, that wasn't 35 in octal ;-)

Debbie 35, and if I make it past Y2K, shooting for 120 (You don't have to lie about your age if you give it in hexadecimal)

-- Debbie (, February 24, 1999.

Hex, for those who don't know (you SHOULD, this is a computerized society!!):
0d = 0x
1d = 1x
2d = 2x
3d = 3x
4d = 4x
5d = 5x
6d = 6x
7d = 7x
8d = 8x
9d = 9x
10d = ax
11d = bx
12d = cx
13d = dx
14d = ex
15d = fx
16d = 10x

53d = 35x

-- Blue Himalayan (bh@k2.y), February 24, 1999.

Blue, ole' fur ball,

Are you trying to tell me that Debbie's a 53d??? (My medication needs to be increased)

A dear friend of mine says that she has never considered me old. She's a geologist.

-- Lon Frank (, February 24, 1999.

Welllll, I wear a 44XL tee shirt, and 32x34 blue jeans. Where does that leave me in this decimal/octal/shirt size/bust size catagory argument?

53d? Mhmmmmm.

-- Robert A. Cook, P.E. (Kennesaw, GA) (, February 24, 1999.


Methinks ye and me are treading on thin ice here. Didn't you learn anything from the beating I took in the thread about arguments and logic and such?

-- Lon Frank (, February 24, 1999.

Robert, about 6' and 165 pounds? :-) And if you've got a bust, I'm worried!

-- Gayla Dunbar (, February 24, 1999.

Come on, now Gayla. I've seen you sneak a peek at Robert's cleavage more'n a couple a times.

What's that?

Oh, you were just admiring his ascot, huh.
