sea change : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

have you noticed the sea change that has happened in the technical press, no longer are there piecharts/stats on y2k readiness, eg what % of companies have completed, haven't started, will complete by Sept, how many are 50% there etc, instead of hard evidence we have most pundits now making generally optimistic statements, govt spokesmen saying their agencies WILL be ready (is that a command or a prediction), blame is being directed at those who are deemed to be "scaremongers", on the whole y2k is being played down, the opinion being instilled is that it is a "foreign problem, the UK will be OK" It is therefore becoming "their opinion vs yours" and of course the "official opinion" must be "more noteworthy" the argument is just degenerating into a slanging match lets have more surveys (or are these being suppressed)

Yes, there is a blight without Richard's limericks & Hardliner's poetry. The Asylum is dry, the Brotherhood quiet, the Circus stalled, the Cat runaway, But! we still have Rob & Tricia hi-cueing, and Hallyx is back with majestic prose and quotes. And of course Dieter ... Yes, much as we try not to, we enjoy the laughs with Dieter, who has been making some good point lately ;-)
