As of December 1998, 56% of mission-critical systems (distribution) are Y2K ready.

As of February, 1999, 64% of mission critical bulk electric systems Y2K ready.

Scotty, you point out that "79% of power distribution systems done with ASSESMENT, 56% of the 79% are y2k READY." I'm a bit math dyslexic, but I think that creative use of numbers means 56% of the 79% of the 100% are ready, yes? I don't have a calculator handy but am I right in thinking that it actually translates to only 44% of PD systems are Y2K ready? In any event, 21% aren't even done with assessment yet. Bloody hell! Surely even Decker finds this not boring.

Just a note- it appears that the distribution numbers are from the NERC survey that is current through November 30, 1998.

Same old same old. Until the lights go out, until the shelves are bare, until people are cold and hungry and jobless we will still have our Decker's and Davis', etc. I'm sure the report has some interesting tidbits, but some folks (alot of folks) will not listean until their eyes see it. Just try to stay out of their way when they stampede. Awefully messy, that.
