Gee, thanks so ever much for bringing this garbage to our attention. I know I would have missed it otherwise. Moron.

Just Say No.

It's sad really, when amateurs try their feeble attempts at sick mastery of Y2K Forum serials.

This poor soul apparently attempted to out-do the Bagga Saga. He failed miserably.

Pitiful. No redeeming value at all. Even his use of adjectives was forced and contrived.

Oh well, they say this is the sincerest form of flattery.

How 'bout a Saga of "The Battles of the Beano" Greybear?

I'm more interested hearing from people with facts, such as the United States Senate Special Committee on the Year 2000 Technology Problem. I hear they're coming out with a report today...

And Declan succeeds in generating more "click-through" income from his site as folks jump over to y2kculture in response to more of his "ad-threads". Dang, what a great racket! *ka-ching!*

If it's any consolation, we haven't made enough money on the site to even pay for the hosting, domain name, and traffic fees. For us, at least, making money is not the point. Putting up that kind of site is fun, and we're enjoying ourselves. Me, I've turned down well-paying gigs -- including magazine articles -- so I can spend more time tinkering with our site.

As for the Y2K report, I'm working on an article about it for

Declan --

from what I've read of it so far (lacking C-Span 2) the most interesting aspect is the disconnect among Koskinen (public face), Bennett (last year vs. this year) and Dodd. And no mention of the detailed work of Rep. Horn's House subcommittee. Or of the various military exercises and plans that have been reported.
