Live Y2K insider CHAT now, it's great!greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
"As if we weren't getting enough proof already that Y2K news (stripped of the Pinnochio Factor) is daily redefining what "not done in time" is going to mean, we have yet more news on the "bug out plans" of programmers who are writing their own "Sayonara" letters....
Join us tonight with a choir of programmers from the field who'll tell you their views and express your opinions on the latest in Y2K developments...
Be sure to check out our special instructions on soybean.com/chat, showing you how to bypass our java program and use www.mirc.com's freeware program (if you don't already use it), to ensure you have a good (uninterrupted) time.
We're on at 9 p.m. tonight, like every Tuesday evening...
Again, it's soybean.com/chat
Hope to see you there.

I can't join you, but since you are talking with disgusted programmers, you might mention my new forum, Deathmarch Y2K. It's a spinoff forum from this one. It invites a discussion by programmers of the organizational dysfunctions which have led to the programmers being in such a bind.
