NO I couldn't either Chris. I tried 4 or 5 other search engines as well, and then searched "gartner group" and found an interesting page of links from '98 until now, mostly older but still a way to get to sites for updated info. 1 bookmark=lotsa sites Didn't seem to have anything to do with this thread though. Should go back and do advanced Yahoo search "Gartner and Group and 30" and see what happens.

REPORT: Year 2000 Risk Assessment and Planning for Individuals 00073955.html

... The Bottom Line: Individuals should prepare for limited duration, localized failures of services and infrastructure rather than an apocalypse. The type and number of failures will vary geographically and cannot really be predicted. Individuals should ensure that they have at least two weeks' salary in cash and up to five days' contingency supplies of key consumable materials (e.g., medication, fuel and food) that they might need.

This Strategic Analysis Report represents the collective view of GartnerGroup as of October 1998. ...

Quote on Y2K Solutions page ... Most organizations will be picking up the pieces of compliance problems far beyond the Year 2000.
