Preliminary World Wide Y2K Compliance Survey Results : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

I came across this on Monday and have posted the link in a couple other threads. This is as of March 15 1999, from Gartner and USA Today. Three charts, Countries, US banks, and Worldwide industry. Any comments? <:)=

Preliminary World Wide Y2K Compliance Survey

-- Sysman (, March 24, 1999


We've seen this before Sysman. Why are you continuing to re-post stuff from the past - especially after criticizing Norm for doing the same. Can you spell hypocrite?

-- Y2K Pro (, March 24, 1999.

I don't recall seeing a thread dedicated to this Y2K Pro. Would you care to point it out? Many people may have missed a link burried in another thread, and I feel it is important enough to present for comments. Have a nice day. <:)=

-- Sysman (, March 24, 1999.

Sysman, I missed it.Thanks for posting the link again.

You're welcome Chris.

Could it be that Y2K Pro has been our mischievous JavaScript fiend all along?

This chart is about one week old. I've seen some from last summer, but if this chart is even close to accurate, the situation is worse than I thought (and I had heard recently that Gartner was following de Jager's line).

Comments? Scary. Depressing. Makes me want to be out in my garden, steadily digging up more space for corn, potatoes, wheat, vegies, beans, you name it.

makes me want to order another ton or two of basics, along with the light 20 gauge shotguns for my daughter and fiancee (hey, we're getting married Friday!!) and lots of ammo for them.

It makes me more convinced we face an 8 (serious depression) to 10 (well, you know, what happens when cultures die?).

Makes me want to build up my library, who knows what I might need to know.

Makes me want to stop total strangers on the streets and try to warn them.

Makes me value the last, golden, bittersweet days of a dying culture and time.

I find it very disturbing that the semiconductor industry is only at a 0 - 2 level. How are they going to manufacture all of those replacement chips?

-- Incredulous (, March 24, 1999.

Thanks for your input folks. Sorry for the non-sense stuff after the post. Looks like we have some kind of JavaScript war going on here! Some people just don't GET IT, and those that do must make fun of those that don't I guess. Just be prepared, and spread the word. Family comes first. When you have that covered, then we can have some fun! <:)=
