Indiana: "This will be the day that I die"greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
This is part of my article (which, in turn is part of my "Y2K This Week" column) on the Indiana Auditor's Senate testimony.
Especially amusing is the quote from a State Of Indiana Y2K web page. That page is at: http://www.state.in.us/dpoc/y2k/article2.html

----- In an email to the "Bloomington Independent", Bill Pierce, Indiana's Year 2000 Project director, said the state government's mainframes have been 98 percent remediated, but only 32 percent of the systems have been implemented. He said much of the remaining implementation involves the Bureau of Motor Vehicles.
Pierce said the state is relying on manufacturer's statements to verify Y2K compliance from vendors on all except 30 products. BellSouth told the Florida Governor's Y2K Task Force they did independent testing on compliance claims by their vendors. More than half were wrong. (See last week's "Bloomington Independent")
In a strange choice of lyrics to quote, on a State of Indiana Y2K web page posted February 1998 is the following: "So, bye-bye, Miss American Pie, drove my Chevy to the levee, but the levee was dry, and them good old boys were drinkin' whiskey and rye, singin' this'll be the day that I die, this'll be the day that I die."
