Bill Gates' Valuable Insight Into Y2K:
"We may see 12 months where people are distracted getting their things ready. But I agree with the general sentiment here, that of the range that people have thought about in terms of the problems that will occur, it will be below the middle of the panic that some people have suggested."
[Bill Gates, February 1, 1999, Davos, Switzerland]

Gee, his grammar and syntax while speaking is as badly executed as his Windoze "OS".
Spoken by a man with *no* mainframe experience. *No* government programming experience. And who lies repeatedly about his own products' compliance.

So I guess Bill is a 4.5 <:)=

Can you imagine Bill Gates palacial estate "NOT" having backup generators of industrial proportions? What has HE got to worry about? He has to worry about his ass line....oops....bottom line. Keep sheeple in a placated mode so they will buy, buy, buy, buy, buy....
***remembering the "personal comfort monitors" handed to Gates guests that monitor their body temp and automatically raise or lower any rooms temperature to their "comfort level" as soon as they walk in the room...***

Didn't Gates acquire an island in the Pacific that he could bug out to, or is this rumor? I tried finding a thread about this, but couldn't find it...

So BeeGee thinks Y2K will "be below the middle of the panic that some people have suggested." What "some people"? Paul Milne and Gary North? How much below? Does he mean a little bit of panic, then? And is that like being a little bit pregnant?
