With all courteousness Sophia, no one is going to feed you. Watch the threads like everyone else, monitor news sites and other good Y2K sites. Good luck on your quest.

It was a non-event. It will continue to be a non-event until......
Sorry my crystal ball went blank.
Check back. Often.

Hi Sophia: nothing particularly remarkable happened yesterday, which is not too surprising given that most of the rollover issues are accounting/invoicing etc. These are not expected to begin to show up for several weeks, since many companies and govts take several weeks to complete the paperwork rollover. Also, Japan just started Fiscal 1999, not 2000 - so don't expect much there. It is expected that most problems will be handled quietly in-house, until the problems get so pervasive that they surface into the public awareness, one way or another. Glad to see you're doing okay :-) Susan PS - am heading for the hills, myself!
