Incidentally, sorry about the wrong info the other day : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Two days ago, I posted that the Senate Y2K Committee would not be uploading the Y2K report until next Monday. That turned out to be false. I waited to confirm that before I posted it. However, the Y2K Committee changed its/their minds, and decided to get it on the Web early. It may be because they knew other organizations were going to do it; I don't know why. But I just wanted to let you all know what happened, and why my information, though confirmed, turned out to be wrong this time around. My apologies for any confusion my original post may have caused.

Not a problem for me Drew. Thank you for your many valuable contributions to this forum. <:)=

We'll all just consider the source of your info, apply 40 lashes with a well cooked linguine noodle (LONG past al dente), and forgive you.

If we all had an accurate Crystal Ball, we wouldn't be in this mess.

Shift Happens. One more time.

Actually, Drew, what you said was "correct". I had someone very connected in Washington chasing down a copy of the report for me early yesterday afternoon. She confirmed at that time from the Committee that it would not be on the 'net until Monday, moments after someone here posted it had just become available. At any rate, I think the early release made for an even more exciting day.

Thanks for the note. I may not have made myself clear; originally, the Senate did *not* plan to release the report on the Web until next Monday; they/it/whatever changed their/its/whatever minds *after* I posted that information about the Monday release date...
