No reports of Y2K-related incidents, says the New Zealand Y2K Readiness Commission

So if the Y2k readiness center was due to report in 5 minutes from their last report, why - two hours later - haven't they posted an update?

I just heard a report from the Y2K center and the guy (Hager?) said that there are no problems in power, communications, etc. in New Zealand or Australia.
