Prepared?greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
Some of you are feeling foolish, don't!!!
A VERY simple philosophy, which is hard to argue with is:
It is better to be prepared, than unprepared, it is better to care for your family, than to neglect them.
It is early days yet, so NO one need make excuses for preparing or caring (and probably not before the end of March 2000

It isn't the preparations so much. Everything can eventually be used over time. It's the fact that family and friends were so irrationally hostile about the preparations.
I know what I did was a rational response to the information at hand.
But what appears to have happened tonight is that there WAS no Y2K problem. Even the countries that didn't DO anything were just fine!
And that doesn't make sense.
Right now I'm starting to wonder what the Greenwich atomic clock is going to do once it gets past December 31, 1999, + 99 hours and 60 seconds.

Scarletbreasted, I'd feel foolish too, if MY breasts were blushing.
