Major US companies lag behind in remediationgreenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
We keep hearing that the problems with Y2K will be minor or non-existant because big companies just have too much to lose and they will all be ready in time with correction and testing. It seems that its not working out quite as well as some would have everyone believe. Check it out at: http://biz.yahoo.com/bw/990507/fl_weiss_r_1.html

I rank Weiss' guesses as about as meaningful as Infoliant's -- which is not very.
The only people who take either seriously are Y2K Doomlits who need numbers to throw at people.

Stephen,just wondering,do you have food in case some unforeseen emergency happened?Or would you need to rely on the welfare state for your sustennance?and doesn't it put a strain on your personel relationships always NEEDING to be right?

I don't need to set aside food. My sole preparation for Y2K (or any disaster) was the purchase of an M1A main battle tank, complete with 1,000 rounds of HEAT, 1,000 rounds of AP, and several thousand for the coaxials.
(That was my BROTHER who bought the Harrier; not ME. Don't even go there!)
I keep a coupla cans of deviled ham in it -- just to tide me over 'til I get to your house for dinner.
