New sysop/moderators being organized for this forum : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread


As part of my "sayonara" decision, I've been looking for someone to take over the task of serving as a moderator/sysop for this forum. A group of forum "regulars" is in the process of organizing themselves; for the time being, they would prefer not to identify themselves by name, but these are people whose postings I've read over the past year, and whose objectivity, maturity, and common sense I respect.

I think a lot of good discussions will continue to take place on the forum, and I'll be lurking from time to time. Best of luck with your own Y2K plans, whatever they may be.

Mr. Yourdon: I was wondering if you intended to answer 'old' emails to you that were received prior to changing your e-box. I know you must have been very backup up between the high volume you usually get and the testimony etc.

Best regards as always, Rob.

Dear Ed,

First thank you for your great work and wondersul summary to the Senate.

We had a good conversation at dinner in the Hilton Waikoloa on the big Island the evening before your lecture there.

The fact that even then you spoke of soon retiring from the Y2K mill and preaching to the choir confirms there are no fearful motives but simply a well thought out action. occasionally I would like to send you information about the events on the Big Island. Not more than one short message per month, so if you care I would appreciate your dropping me a brief e-mail.

As you know there are some unique advanbtages to be in a fertile region next to the ocean with vast anounts of empty fertile land. Lots of wild boars and fish and cattle.

Aloha and may we meet again

I hope to see another "American Programmer" book from you!

-- Anonymous99 (, May 31, 1999.

I'll vote for that!

ain't gonna happen :(

-- Andy (, May 31, 1999.


How about a book on "deprogramming" for the 21st century?

At any rate, thanks... again... Ed, for the information.

Ed, just wanted to say good luck to you. It was a pleasure meeting you a couple of months ago when you gave your presentation in D.C. (along with Paula Gordon) at George Washington University (right before I re-located to NW Arkansas!). Thanks for keeping this forum on-line, it truly has done, and will undoubtedly will continue to do, a lot of good helping people prepare for Y2K.
