Unlike my post below of workds of optimism, do any of you have quotes of pessimism. I have come across a few:

"Y2K could be the event that coupld all but paraluze the plant." Newsweek, June 2, 1997.

This problem will affect us all individually and collectively in very profound ways...It will indeed impact individual businesses and the global economy. In some cases, lives could even be at stake." Senate Special Committee on the Year 2000 Technology problem, February 25, 1999.

Seems I read where the K-man said a while ago that he could see no evidence that the railroads would make it,,,I know I felt better after reading that,,,where's a PR man when you need him.
