Thanks, farewell, and good luck to everyone : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

The time has come to say adieu. While I hope to continue to post, I'm not sure that I'll be able, for any number of reasons.

I've learned more from this forum in the past 20+ months than I ever imagined possible. Everyone has contributed to a better understanding of what is an enormously huge, complex, pan-dimensional/double-helix/Moebius strip, mystery wrapped in an enigma known simply as "Y2k".

Yet, I still feel strangely dumbstruck at times at how little I really know. I have tried to contribute in my own humble way to the knowledge base. I hope I have done so.

In 24 hours, to quote Cory Hamasaki, "all the rules change". Most of us have prepared, and are ready to adapt to whatever lies ahead.

There are too many people to thank individually. I can only say thanks to everyone. You have all given me strength and hope, as well as humor when I needed a good belly-laugh.

I hope to keep in touch. My e-mail is real for anyone who wishes to stay in touch with me.

Still hoping for a 5. See you on the "other side of midnight"...

Who the hell is Cory Hamasaki?

Hey Steve... be safe.. be well!

See ya.

God Bless Steve.


I named one of my chickens after Cory Hamasaki.

I appreciate your posts and your efforts. Do take good care of yourself and your loved ones. You remain on my mind and in my prayers.



Corey Hamasaki is--for all intents and purposes--famous for his Washington DC Y2K Weather Reports. There is a wealth of information to be found, as well as entertaining reading!

Steve....Very best wishes to you and yours for a Happy Healthy New Year!

Some guy named Clark didn't recognize who I was, so I feel that I should be able to question the existence/importance of another human being.

That said, it appears that Mr. Hamasaki is a weatherman. That's very nice.

Hi Steve,

Will email you from NZ when the clock ticks over, when I can.

Check out the site Jim Lord recommends for info on NZ.

Email also real.

Best Regards, BobB

BTW: Cory just put WRP #134 up on his site. Offsetting the happy stories from the televised celebrations, his outlook still has the mainframes giving us fits over the next few months.

I tend to agree, too.
