ANTI-SPIN: EVERYTHING from here on out is a Y2k problem :-) : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

I'm having fun here... ok?

This is for the denialists and spinners out there.

I was thinking about the obvious spin regarding the "we don't know what the problem is but it's NOT a Y2k problem" strategy.

It's amazing to consider how after the largest, most comprehensive, worldwide software implementation in history has gone "live" there are NO Y2k problems.

I think we have absolute evidence either that there is a desire to "spin" the story or God has been very good to us, far beyond what we all deserve. This implementation going off without a hitch as the denialists suggest is nothing short of a miracle.

Naw, I think it's spin.

Fine. How about some anit-spin?

EVERY COMPUTER PROBLEM IS A Y2K PROBLEM. EVERY other problem is a Y2k problem!

This is entirely true and factual. Did the problem happen in the Year 2000? Yes? Then how can it NOT be a Year 2000 problem?

Oh, unless it's a Year 1900 problem of course.


Anti-spinners unite!!!

I'm with you Mike. I'm downright dizzy from all the spinnin'.

I wonder how long the Spin Doctors', Pocket Full of Kryptonite (Not Y2K Mantra) will last.

Hey, I think Brent beat ya to the punch there, Mike. ;-)

Perhaps I can spin everything as 'nobody really knows.' Then everyone can hate me (not that they already don't, maybe). ;-)

Brent did? awwww! that guy is fast!!! Nothing new under the sun.

ok... please return to your normally scheduled "it's not Y2k" programming :-)

"ok... please return to your normally scheduled "it's not Y2k" programming :-) "

uh screen went blank!

All I have now is it's not y2k snow and test patterns...Damn and I was just starting to get into the spin.

Good one, Mike! LOL!

....which reminds me, I gotta get around to taking the "2 Days Till 1900" screen saver off my machine....

No, it's only a computer-that-has-a-date-problem, problem. Ho-kay?
