Drudge Report: Norm In Critical Condition ......

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread


While trying to post yet another bogus "good news" report about Y2K remediation, Norm (nwo@hotmail.com) or "Norm" as he/she calls themselves, was struck on the head by a copy of De Jager's latest article.

On Norm's way to the hospital, a medical device with a malfunctioning embedded system exploded, leaving Norm with shrapnel in his dorsal area.

Norm is now reported to be in critical condition. Y2K Pro is said to be rushing to his bedside.

More to come soon on this breaking story ........

Yes, the norm thing is kinda a running joke here. I am sorry for the trouble you are experiencing but would really like you to give details as to what kind of problems you guys are experiencing over there as it may help some people here to become more aware of potential problems. Thanks

THE YOURDON TIMES ***** JAN. 21, 2000

Norm, the well known polly from the Yourdon TIMEBOMB2000 forum, was found dead today, at the bottom of the Grand Canyon. His best friend, Y2K Pro, was also found, dead, about 1 inch from his body. Official reports say that they both suffered from the well known eyes-stuck-closed virus. The cure was well known, being published on the Yourdon site, and many other Y2K sites on the internet. However, they both refused to even attempt to open their eyes. Friends from the Gary North Is A Big Fat Idiot site, and friends from the Y2K Debunkers site, carried the flowers... <:)=
