Too bad I use Windows NT.

-- Dog Gone (, July 15, 1999.

"Microsoft has patches available for this Y2K problem"

Yup, Service pack 3 for NT fixed the Y2K problems, right? Oh, that's right, they missed a few, so out comes SP/4. Now it;s ok, right? Humm, must have missed a few more, so next we have the "Service pack for Service pack 4" (I just loved that one). OK now, right? No? More Y2K issues with SP/5? Don't worry. It'll be fixed in NT/5 (Win/2000), the most complex OS ever, right? <:)=

PS - And I wonder what all those other issues on the Microsoft Y2K page are for, if the only problem is NT???

Hey Pro, could you put eseech on my fries?

Ya know, this Y2KrazyIdiot kinda grows on you after a while....

In six months, when she's huddled around a burn barrel in the alley, dodging hungry stray dogs and wishin' she'd at least remembered to wash a weeks' worth of underwear, I hope she'll be thinking of us...

I know I'll be thinking of her.....

I can't think of any way to rebut this article, so I'll take personal pot-shots at the person who posted it - secure in the knowledge the moderators will not censor me. For I am a Doomer...

-- Y2K Pro (, July 15, 1999.

Nah, Translation:

This bow-head - who we will have spent a whole year with by the rollover - won't be able to post from the "warming center", and I'm gonna miss her.

-- Lisa (, July 15, 1999.

Well, personally, I like Peter's version better. Unfortunately, my personal contacts have given me a less rosy picture. I'm no expert, I'm a headhunter. I get to talk to techies all day if I want to.

6 months or so will give us a better idea.

Y2K PRO, if you've seen my posts here, you know I am not one for making personal attacks. I don't see the point. The Internet is the ultimate "sticks and stones" (G)

If you are right and I am wrong, I will most gladly stop back here after it is clear that all is well (at least into the 2nd quarter) and post said fact daily until I get bored with it. Right after I let all of my extended family get a piece of my rear end.

Hoping you are right, worried I am

-- Jon Williamson (, July 15, 1999.

Lisa, precisely why do you think I am a gal?

Y2K Pro: haven't we already settled this?

Boy do you have this person pegged. Everything is being looked at backwards, right? Yup, got it all backwards, including the Y2k data.

-- Gordon (, July 16, 1999.


Usually your opinions are worth reading. But it this case, even I can see that we have a serious troll. I'm rather surprised that you cannot understand that trolls who mock your enemies nonetheless contribute nothing but noise.
