DANG! @#@$@ I KNOW I Posted that thread! Where'd it GO?!?!?!greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) Preparation Forum : One Thread
This forum is intended for people who are concerned about the impact of the Y2000 problem on their personal lives, and who want to discuss various Y2K personal and community PREPARATION strategies and tips with other like-minded people. "
Once again, the ground rules:
THis is for HOW to, WHAT to, and as we said in another Forum:
As BD pointed out, this new forum will be dedicated to PREPARATIONS and, well, period. This means the "How?" questions. Not the "Why?' nor the "Wherefore?" questions. Those should remain the domain of this forum. And any posted on the Prep forum will find themselves over here fairly quickly.
HAving said this, there is an area that is quite grey, and might be both on and off topic in the prep forum. this is the "How MUCH?" question. To simplify the answer to this, let's try to observe the following conventions:
the answers should address "How MUCH?" using the following common durations:
4 weeks (1 month)
8 weeks (2 months)
greater than 1 year.
As the "How long?" question might be either on or off topic, let us reserve that question to the domain of the TB2K Classic Forum (THIS one).
If you feel the timeframes need to be adjusted, and remember we're trying to cover the spectrum, let us know, here, on this thread, or, well, what the heck, my e-mail works.

If you still have questions about what you believe to be disapearing posts, asI said, my e-mail works, as does BD's
specifically this also rules out those things which are better qualified as "AWARENESS"-type posts.

Y'all were warned on TB2K Classic, and now you have been warned here. we will NOT be slow, and we MIGHT try to explain if you use valid e-mail addresses on the posts. Or, at least I will try, BD may not have the time.

A small additional word: don't let this inhibit your posting. If you have a question about what fits, send us an email. Always remember that TB2K Classic can have ANYTHING posted, so long as not obscene. Of course, the grey areas here are somewhat of a judgment call and we'll evolve as we go.

Moore --- You can send us email at firstname.lastname@example.org (we list this on the forum cover page). You can get yourself an account with them or go to http://hotmail.com. You can use a pseudonym but still have email sent to the "mailbox" that you register.
