Final post and I'm gonegreenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
Well Y2k is wrapping up, not ramping up. Time to get back to a normal life. I know for some "y2k" will never end, because y2k was never really what they were waiting for. I am glad its over and we saw so few effects from the rollover and I dont expect to see anything tragic happen from this point forward.
To friends and enemies I say farewell...

Hamster we'll miss you. Maybe you should stick around for the coming race war. Of course the race war is nothing so silly as blacks agains whites or asians, or latinos. I mean the real race war, the human race against the squirrels. I think a hamster could really come in handy.

Another one bites the dust =(
You have boldly gone where no hamster has gone before. Live well and prosper, Hamster. (<> - <>) V

Good luck to ya hamster.
-- Hokie (Hokie_@hotmail.com), January 07, 2000.
Hamster, I may join you...I am finding the forum less informative and more silly as of late...lots of finger pointing at vanishing mists, etc. I know there are real glitches out there, but none of them appear life threatening...at least not the documented ones. Time will tell about the rest...I can't change the events and I am already as prepared as I intend to be, so what the heck.
Take care Hamster, I'll miss you too.
-- Ynott (Ynott@incorruptible.com), January 07, 2000.
Bye Hamster. Habba trails to you. ;-)
-- kritter (firstname.lastname@example.org), January 07, 2000.
Hamster: it's been real. Thanks for sharing the meme.
All good fortune to you,
-- silver ion (email@example.com), January 07, 2000.
You'll be back lurking...... trust me. :)

Take care; I enjoyed reading your posts. As my Russian friends say,
"Good luck in everything you do."

I might be yet another one to follow you out the door...at least as a poster. I may lurk here from time to time, but I put a lot of things on hold to prep for The Little Apocalypse That Couldn't and I want to get back to them. Plus, as pointed out previously here, any Y2K issues that come up will likely remain hidden. Even if it causes the economy to tank we probably won't know for sure. And I usually don't do forums or chats for the most part, too busy with my music and my Real Time relationships to foster virtual ones. I'll make my own desision in a few days, but I sympathize with yours.
Take care, I've enjoyed your posts!

Give it a year before you say 'its over'. It ain't over yet.
-- ..- (firstname.lastname@example.org), January 07, 2000.
Fare thee well Hamster; I'll probably be joining you, but I can't resist lurking from time to time.
Oh if I shall never see; a hamster jumping from a tree; tra-la-la and fiddle dee-dee; Y2K has been enough for me!
-- Marsha (MSykes@court.co.macon.il.us), January 07, 2000.

Bye Hamster. I always looked forward to your posts! Come back if you ever feel like it.

From one rodent to another, happy trails. I'm right behind you. Seems I've said my piece about the state of affairs inside ATC anything else I add to the equation will be simply repeating myself to those that don't care to hear it.
Before I go, two observations about the dynamics of this list: 1) There have been people/posters of infomation that have been credible and helpful regardless of their opinion vis-a-vis Y2K. 2) There have been people/posters of opinion that have been less than helpful regardless of the information they had regarding Y2K. A fine line separates the two, but there definitely is a difference between them. Strident, "I'm right and everybody that disagrees can go to hell" tones, name calling (polly/doomer and other more colorful that I won't mention) and lack of willingness to hear and consider what others are saying that may contradict the prevailing views held were the markers for #2 me.
Either way, it's been a really interesting and thought provoking time and living in earthquake country, I'll probably never have a JIT panty again due to the awareness raised by this list.

"Final post and I'm gone"
Wish I had a nickel for every time someone said that, and came back later to post again!
Hasta la vista you little rodent. What kind of creature will you be when you return? I'll be able to tell it's you regardless. :-)
-- Hawk (email@example.com), January 07, 2000.
Bye, hamster. I'll miss you here.
-- margie mason (firstname.lastname@example.org), January 07, 2000.
Fair winds and following seas, hampster. Stay away from R. Gere.
-- Michael Erskine (Osiris@urbanna.net), January 07, 2000.
Y'all come back and see us now, y'heah?
[Hmm. Time for a trip back to England I think.]
-- Old Git (email@example.com), January 07, 2000.
When I decide to let go, I shall ride off into the sunset and not look back nor say farewell. Good luck hamster, it's been fun.
-- bardou (firstname.lastname@example.org), January 07, 2000.
Don't leave us now. We'll miss you. We can still share information and questions as long as the forum is up.
Even if you leave, it was nice havin' ya. Best wishes for the future.

I have enjoyed your posts and associated verbal jousts as well, and I shall miss you, friend.
I may yet follow you, but I enjoy my friends here and may yet learn a thing or two! (don't say it Decker...)
Fare you well and Godspeed!
