Koskinen on CSPAN last night

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

At 11:30 p.m. PST last night (2:30 a.m. EST) Koskinen was on CSPAN. He was very different than before. VERY CAUTIOUS. When reporters kept implying all was over and OK, he said this was just the beginning and there was a ways to go - that there would be problems and we would start seeing them and they could continue for some time. He said he would only breathe easier if he saw nothing by the end of Tuesday or Wednesday. He reiterated over and over that was still very concerned.

It was the least optimistic talk I've heard from him yet. He also thanked the people that showed great concern and even those with different points of view as to outcome of this because they are what helped wake everyone up and spur everyone on - that we were and still are at GREAT risk.

Yes, I am grateful that the infrastructure stayed up! That is major news. Now for the next hurdle.
