State of Pennyslvania Declares!!!greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
Today, the GUV made the announcement that ALL computer systems in the state were 100% Y2K compliant....Heard this as I was driving to the dentist.

Pennsylvania - I remember them getting caught with their projections but I can't remember the precise numbers. In the summer of 1998 they claimed to be 90% compliant with compliance to be reached in December. Then in the summer of 1999 they claimed 95% compliance thus missing their target and conceding only 5% accomplishment in a year's time.
I don't trust those Bozos. Somebody give Big Ears the exact story please. Thanks.

I believe they're speaking of, of course, critical mission systems. 98% compliance at July of 1998. The final 2% took A YEAR AND FOUR MONTHS!

That would be nice. The STATE is compliant. I wonder how the COUNTIES and CITIES/TOWNS are doing? I wonder how the BUSINESSES are doing?
Tick... Tock... <:00=

From what I gather from my local govt, the locals and county have done squat about it. County has some contingency plans, but hasn't done much else. Local city is clueless.
I'm glad I don't live in town.
