Clinton-99.9% of mission critical systems ok : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread


"With the end of the year in sight, I am pleased to release Office of Management and Budget's (OMB) final quarterly report that shows that the Federal government is ready for the year 2000. As of today, 99.9 per cent of the government's mission critical computer systems are Y2K compliant."

I wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of all those unfixed NON-mission critical systems! If your livelihood depends on non-mission critcal systems, suddenly they become VERY mission-critical.
