Too good to be true?greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
In a Y2K story I read at home last night, a CalTech researcher has discovered the solution to the Year 2000 mess. Independent verifcation has validated this. The new technology, Periodic Error Nullification and Corrective Instrument Logic, is said to be able to replace computer processes prone to Y2K. Evidently it's very user-friendly and while a bit slower than computer processes, it's almost infallible. Wall Street is lining up behind the manufacture of this breakthrough and the federal government has begun talks with the inventor to acquire this new process and implement it on all 70,000+ mission-critical and non-mission-critical systems. I don't have the URL, but I think it has something to do with the technology's acronymn.

I just purchased a good sharpener. Got a box of 2.5's.

Are you SURE of this?? It does sound too good to be true. I hope you're right, but I doubt it. I'll keep hoping for the best while preparing for the worst!!

hmmm...Peter de Jager must have been involved with this...No wonder Paul Davis, Mutha, Y2K Pro and Norm are so upbeat. You just gotta hand it to those fellas with the big brains!

I read on one of the on-line news sources (maybe worldnetdaily?) in February or the end of January, that someone in England has found an easy fix for finding bad embedded chips by using his laptop and a "neat" little program he wrote. He was in the process of making a deal with several big businesses in the US. It supposedly has a 100% success rate. I wish I could remember where I read it. Anyone else read something about that? I'll try to do some digging and see if I can find it again.
