y2k IN A NUTSHELL......

Pull up the page.

Click on FILE

Click on SAVE AS....

Give it a NAME, and you just saved the HTML page on your local hard disc.

That's all there is to it. It will look EXACTLY the save as the "on- line" version, except any JPG's won't be included. Also, Your browser will be the application that reads it, when you want to see it again later.

Hope this helps

I especially liked Brownlee's Notes from the Future. There is a lot of wisdom packed into this little essay, and perhaps a dash of prescience.

Leadership did finally bloom in the Y2K crisis, of course, and it came from a host of unexpected quarters. Real leadership emerged organically, from the bottom up, much to the dismay of those who were trying to hold the old systems together. It was uncontrollable, flexible, responsive -- vastly different from the models of power and authority that had previously held sway. The new leaders convincingly demonstrated that true leadership does not mean accumulating and wielding power. Instead, it means empowering others to be truly creative.
We on this board, most of us, have prepared physically as best we can. We have a few days left in which we can quietly reflect on what in our lives is most important to us -- on which do you spend more hours per week: shopping; or playing with your children? -- and mentally prepare ourselves for the coming waves of change.

After the rollover, it's a new world.

A very significant article. However, there's more.

Debt repudiation, alone, has the power to deliver subhuman grubbing to much of society. The American public does not realize that their bankers have loaned out all their wealth, never to be repaid.

For a decade or more, a small number of economic historians have envisioned this age of technics as fast drawing to a close. Everything that seems cast in cement is about to change and change is an ordeal. Sadly, the word has been emptied of all meaning.

We're going into reverse for a long long time. There's no!way!out!

My advice......Make sure your anchor grips the Rock of Ages.

Thanks for the response Dennis......

I was thinking about a printable version. Like something to hand out to several DGI children. Of course I could reformat in a word processor. Awfull lot of work....However...may be the only way.
