NERC Y2K Drill Prep guidelines (How they did it and "succeeded" on April 9th, 1999.)greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
Was posted here before. You _DO_ want to see this document. It is an abysmal travesty, just as the so called 'test' which was claimed to be a great success. Can someone please send this to Gary North.

Gary North had this on his site in February, but thank you for the tip.

Forget Gary North - he's the one that originally found it! But what I would really LOVE to see is for this to get out to the media and be disclosed. Anybody have connections to get this story out? I'd love to see Dan Rather go up to the head of NERC and ask him what this is all about. It's time the world knows the truth!!

A journalist asked John Koskinen about the NERC's pdf file at "Y2K: The Press and Preventing Panic", a media conference held on March 10. The journalist had seen the pdf file at a Web site.
I can't remember what John Koskinen's answer was, though. You can hear the conference at this link:
It lasts about an hour and a half.

The recent much-ballyhoo'ed-by-Hoff FAA test was just as much of a media-suckling travesty.
Shame on you all for perpetrating this on us, and shame on those of you who should know better for touting these "success" stories on this forum.
I want good news just as much as the rest of us - when I see this blatent lying then things do NOT bode well for rollover. This is a no brainer.
