"Laddering" and "Secondary Clocks"greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
I recently found an article on one of Dr. Gary North's links written by a Bruce Beach on "laddering" and "secondary clocks". It appears that we still might have troubles with our various computer systems which are claimed to be y2k compliant. Would anyone care to comment? Thanks. Everitt Sim

Look in the forum archives, you will find quite a few nearly flammable threads where this has been run into the ground. The short answer is: The experts disagree, nobody knows.

I attempted to explain some possibilities based upon my experience in the following link:

WILL any of the possibilities occur ... only the Creator knows for sure, and He is gonna make the rest of us wait to find out.

It is a farce! You have got to be a newbie. Bruce has busses burried in the ground that he put there as bomb shelters years ago and thought he could make up some BS and scare people into moving in to his burried busses.

You are the farce, Cherri. Shoulda known you're one of Simpoole's hacks. You never have come up with a decent rebuttal of Beach or Frauschti. But, you sure can paste an ugly picture. Back under the brid

The government recently make some comments about the dangers of hidden clocks. Bruce Beach may be right. He was getting most of his information from an oil company research facility. Of course no one knows how common the hidden clock occurance is.

Uhhh, Cherri, first of all I would like to thank you for finally posting your picture so that we can see what you look like. And, uhh, secondly I would like to ask you to PLEASE FORGET every single mudwrestling invitation that I have ever made to you.

Read the whole post.
She knows nothing. Shill city.

King of Spain, you have never asked me to mudwrestle. When I was stationed in Texas I used to legwrestle until one time this guy tried to flip me but I held my leg strait so it wacked him in the crotch. I stopped doing it after that, I didn't want to hurt anyone else.
As for how much experience and knowledge I have, the picture below is of me working on an analog computer in 1973. It is the same computer that is used in air traffic control, the older ones not the new ones that have just been put in place that are having all of those failures.
IThis was not even the first computer I worked on. I have worked on dozens of computers over the years as they became more complex, powerful and smaller. In the picture there are large servo's which you can see on the doors, on the bottom of the right door are rows of relays, the logic which has been referred to "ladder" logic. I DO know what I am talking about and have more years of training and experience in the hardware and software of computers than most people on this forum.
Most people have experience in one or the other- hardware or software, I have both.
You can take someone like Bruce Beach who is looney tunes or Paula Gordon, who is a failed politician who appears to live off of grants and reads a bunch of webpages, askes irrelevent questions and twists facts she is incapable of understanding and writes "white pages" about them and make the two of them (Bruce and Paula) and others with just as little experience and knowledge into your little "embedded experts" you idolize. You then profess to have the ability to determine my depth of knowledge.
It does not matter what you choose to do or believe, you cannot change the facts.
Now I have a question for you or anyone here who thinks with your kind of logic.
If you had a multimillion dollar piece of equipment that you needed to have installed and maintained, who would you hire to do it? Paula Gordon or me? If that piece of equipment had a failure, would you want Bruce Beach, who has "discovered" a (previously unknown to the millions of people who have worked on computers) "clock function" to troubleshoot and repair your equipment? Or would you want me, with my 30 plus years experience in troubleshooting and repair and programming computers and "embedded" and hardware systems?
Would you, like so many businesses have done (to their detrement) and hire people because of their "label" or "degree" which they percieve as being all that is needed to do the work, or would you hire someone who has a proven tract record of doing good work?
When a businesshires started hiring degree's (IT degree's) instead of experienced workers, they got this Y2K mess.
Experienced computer programmers and tech's understood enough about computers to know there would be a problem with two digit years. "IT's" were never taught enough to know that there would be a problem.
Even after large interprises were remediating the Y2K problems, the assembly line (college's) were still turning out people who still put out work that was not Y2K able.
So go ahead and rant on about what you think I do not know, your ignorance is yours to treasure. If it builds up your weak little ego to attempt to put me down so you can feel bigger about yourself, be my guest. I know what I know, if you know it or not is no skin off of my assessment.
