Will Infomagic ever post again?

I'm not alone in realizing that Infomagic has caused many intellectuals to fret and ponder the potential hazardous scenarios which he postulated months earlier.

There are those who blamed him for his prediction that the stock market would crash late in 1998.

I was not following the stock market last year, but I remember reading earlier this Summer on a DejaVu post supplied by *a* where Infomagic warned that the closer the stock market crash occurred to Y2K, the worse it would be for America and the rest of the world.

And his words are more relevant than ever! Does anyone dispute his logic?

The American trade deficit is horrendously higher than ever. Americans are borrowing more than ever. The Bablyonish stupidity quotient is entering the stratosphere of neverending dreams!

When foreign countries panic and suddenly decide to sell off their stocks, bonds and other equities, then the Dollar will fall suddenly into a spiral chasm of no return. That will be the end of the power of the American Dollar as we know it.

Cash will become igneous liguid.

Can anyone contact Infomagic and let him know that we desire to cogitate upon his most recent thoughts?

Please, don't link to earlier Infomagic posts. These have been hyperlinked ad nauseum.

I want to hear from Infomagic himself.

Infomagic: Are You Out There?

E. Coli posted last night. He disappered about the same time Info did. Both have similar views.

E = Info???

Speak up E, we can't hear you.

Infomagic had the courage to make specific predictions, and the sense to lie low when all of them proved dead wrong. Compare with Milne, who lacks both courage and sense.

-- Flint (flintc@mindspring.com), October 08, 1999.

Flint: Which Milne predictions would those be?

"The remediation will fail" (true)

"The Government budget will increase by a factor of 10" (true)

"More and more spin and lying will ensue" (true)

He has been right on y2k more than he's been wrong Flint.

Speaking of Paul Milne, I about had a wreck in my car listening to a Christian radio program on Y2K. The guy was talking about people going out and stock piling food and supplies, and then he said "why there's this intelligent man, who was a commodities trader, very successful in what he did, he bought a farm in Virgina and has stocked piled food and ammo and all kinds of assault weapons. Well my dear people, God does not ask or require that you prepare such as this man did, he who only requires that you trust in him only." Then he said "why don't you make a special love offering to God, right now. If Y2K does happen, you won't need that money, so why not put it to good use now, send it to ____________, where we can use it to further God's work." I kid you not! My point is, that this guy was talking about Paul Milne and in the next breath he was being greedy himself! This guy was a BIG TIME POLLY and a GREEDY one at that!

Someone (Roy Rogers?) once said that "preachers tell you to give money to God, but they always give you their address." The televangelists are as threatened by diversion of all possible resources by families to preps as are the big corporations selling all manner of pointless items. Gary North has chronicled several specific cases of this (such preachers).

I don't believe E. Coli is Infomagic. The former is a pagan. Infomagic is a God-fearing man. I respect him.

I fear God's judgments.

These are the last good times in America.

Everyone can hoot and holler all they want about Y2K, but the systemic problems will be the bane of America's undoing.

Most of you are mostly prepared, but the VAST MAJORITY do NOT have Y2K common sense. And they will suffer.

We must help these people. I know it won't be easy, but they WILL appreciate our help.

Please, please make plans to help others.

Be prepared because the worst is coming soon...

MS: Don't you mean Will Rogers?

-- curtis schalek (cschalek@earthlink.net), October 08, 1999.

No...you mean Buck Rogers! Uh....or was that Ginger Rogers

-- TM (mercier7@pdnt.com), October 08, 1999.

My apologies...It was Mr. Rogers!

Infomagic is an ISP in Flagstaff, AZ. I hear their commercials daily. The post you refer to are from someone in that general area. He or she has nothing to worry about, if they stockpiled some wood, food and water. Flagstaff is a 50K college town. No food riots there (food fights maybe). The "thining of the heard" was the basis for his posts. Paul posts his toast message. The bottom line is, if the SHTF and you are not prepared to weather the "storm", you are at the mercy of others whom prepared or an impotent government. Mad max, maybe? Your preperations will determine your fate in the event the supply chains break. Got water, food, heat, ammo,....?

Infomagic is Ivan Mingham, an IT professional. Not to be confused with E. Coli, one of the very best and most interesting posters we have ever had on this forum (I've been lurking since mid-98).

-- Count Vronsky (vronsky@anna.lit), October 08, 1999.

E. Coli and I fought like cats and dogs on this forum, but we both agreed that it was generally fun. I miss him.

E., where are you?

-- Paul Neuhardt (neuhardt@ultranet.com), October 09, 1999.

No one should feel that bad about predicting a stock market crash last year. If history offered any guidance, it would have crashed. What we are seeing now is unprecedented in US market history. There has never been a mania like this one before, not even in 1929.

-- Dave (dannco@hotmail.com), October 09, 1999.

I am well aware that Infomagic does not post here.

Yes, it was a vain hope. *sigh*

According to *a*, Infomagic was doing some important preparations in Newfoundland, Canada.

The last post I remember reading on Deja News [sorry I mistyped that newsgroup in my original post] was that Infomagic was seated at his laptop computer in Southwestern America, joking with his girlfriend while he typed his message and was enjoying the company of fine wine and his canine.

E. Coli has been beset with his nomenclature.

BTW, remember to stock up on multi-vitamins and antibiotics!
