In case this forum shuts down, what are some other URL's of Y2K forums that you like?greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
In case this forum shuts down, what other Y2K forums do you feel are useful? Please give the full URL for them. The URL, the name, and a short description of what the forum is usually about would be appreciated.
Thank you in advance.

It's not shutting down Ken.
Ed said so...
Ed, Is There Anything We Can Do For You?
Lets wait and see what happens.

Thanks Diane for the click through. You were a Library Sciences major right? ;) I admire your organization and skills, and I thank you for all the "catalog and card filing" you've done here.
I'm happy that this site will still stay up. Perhaps the next moderator could delete posting that are mostly viprutive name calling and little or no Y2K substance.
This site could (though VERY unlikely) die from lack of input. Or it could go into a coma if all the polite and not so polite pollys flood it and drown out the useful conversations. Or it could be taken over by squids (very very old BBS term, think 64K CP/M days) and be deluged by "Church of the sub-genius" types.
Anyway, I would still like to augment my bookmarks with other good sources of info, so any good URLs or e-lists would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

We (Diane, a,infomagic,Invar,Taz, and others) that have contributed so much to this forum and to each other, should have a means of staying in touch should the the Forum go down. I'll glad to see that Ed is going to maintain it, and perhaps we coulkd help in some way.

i'm glad the forum will continue, as i use it for cheap therapy and it works. whenever the DGIs around me start getting to me, i check into the forum and realize i'm not alone anymore.

I find this Solar activity site interesting and a reminder that all things will not be Y2K induced. It does suggest that the problem will be compounded by extraneous forces, both natural and man made. I have on my list of to-do's some basic skills acquisition in Ham radio, but I am hoping to find someone in my network of folks, that already has such knowledge. There's just soo much to learn. I will if I have to though.
I lived in Jersey City in the mid '50s, I can only shudder to think how a city of that proportion and diversity will be hit.
You ask what we can do to help. I keep telling myself it is not necessary or productive or constructive to engage in threads initiated by the worms that would destroy this forum. There is some voyeur in me I guess because I have done so too many times in the past. I for one need to be more steadfast in my conviction to not encourage them by adding to their ego driven drivel. I consider yesterday to be an important wake up call.
