Woo hoo!

Things y2k look better than ever today.

But it ain't over til it's over.

I'm still convinced that there will be many important things going wrong over the next days weeks and months, but i'm currently not feeling much confidence in my ability to guess the total outcome of these. :~)

Congratulations to the Polly's for being more right than the Doomers about the immediate rollover effects. Here's hoping you're just as correct about the many other y2k systemic stresses we face in the near future.

The immediate effects of y2k are not really immediate but over time, its a timebomb, not a daybomb. Not until the whole system is put into full real-time operation will be begin to know of the ramifications of y2k over the next few weeks. y2k is not a day event, its a year event, possibly even longer. Pollies can gloat all they like about the rollover event, for it dosen't matter to the billions of glitches and unfixed systems around the world, they don't take day events. If there are problems with embeds, they might take a while to show up. The non comp ones though would probably crash as soon as they are fired up. But the y2k in the software code plus the billions of glitches will prob slowly detonate over time.

Well said.

Hey #6..who cares who was right and wrong? EVERYONE prepared. What's troubling is that those with psychological conditions--like Andy--continue to post the doom accounts and that Gary North is at it once again.

Anyone here want to tell them to get over it?

Bad Company,

get over ***me*** you closet queen you.

enough already.

Andy, your mom likes me in drag. Tell her to quit calling my house, eh?

Isn't there a chemtrail you can chase somewhere?

OK Andy---I'll 'get over you'. All in good fun, although I do think you're obsessing a little now.

A little??????

-- Uncle Deedah (unkeed@yahoo.com), January 02, 2000.

What are you insinuating, Auntie?

-- Andy (2000EOD@prodigy.net), January 02, 2000.

I'll be OVERJOYED to get over it once we've given the businesses a few days to a couple weeks to chew on the date change. Remember, most of them were NOT running Friday night.

Andy, smart boy that you are, you will figure it out.
