Daryll: ??? It sure does for me! You can always do it the long way: "http://fennel.assumption...".

seraphima: This was excellent! Worth going to the very bottom of this issue, and clicking on the (rightmost) link to the previous issue (May) -- plenty of Y2K and Stock Market info there too!

After running a searh engine I came up with this:

I'm not sure why his worked for him with the added "pub" in it while it didn't work for the rest of us... Any experts out there care to explain it? :-)

You know what's really interesting about that cash computer is, that if you input very minimal percentage figures and only $150 for individual cash withdrawal (enough for a three day weekend or a little more), you end up with the banking system holding up. Perhaps this is the basis of that recommendation - that it's the most the banking system can really bear.

a great place - Thanks Seraphima

Very interesting.

I think the problem with large companies is not that they will withdraw cash, but they'll move it into something they perceive to be safer, like US Treasuries. Many large companies have deposits in excess of $100,000. This movement is what John Mauldin calls an "electronic run" on the banks, and could bankrupt the system.

Wake up America :o) If every household takes out 1,800 for y2k the banks crash! Thats not counting any companys or bussiness stashing anything away for a rainy day. I have nothing so I'm out ): So what does that tell you?
