One of the largest credit bureaus in the US is, um, not real sure they need people to come to work Monday... : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Trans-Union has been having some "problems" with their mainframe systems. Seems they have been down more than up last couple weeks. Anyone working outside of IT has been told to call to see if they have to get to work Monday. or so an employee told me this afternoon.

course, while this sucks for my Sis in law I figger it couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of folks. (GRRrrrrrr!)

I have it from "a very reliable source" that a "Major Insurance company" will be testing their new system Sunday and Monday... all employees are to call in Tuesday to see if they have to come in.. just an fyi :-) I'll have a front row seat to the whole thing

I assume they'll still get paid...?

Only senior management will get paid. Line employees will lose everything. That's the way the Y2K bug works.

yeah but of course any problems..."aren't Y2K related".......

"Only senior management will get paid. Line employees will lose everything."

It's not my wallet on the line... But if it were, I'm scream louder than a stuck pig. The name of the offending company would be all over the net. The world would know, or else I'd be richly paid to keep mum.

Dude, that's how the Y2K coverup continues. Everyone says that nothing bad's happening. But everything bad is happening. They just won't call it "Y2K related". That's how the corporations protect themselves from being sued. I could slam the car door on my pinkie and I can't sue the automobile manufacturer for Y2K compliance 'cause they said, "Nothing happened."
