FIRECRACKERS & Y2K : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Many expected the big bang on 1 Jan 2000, we all did, but y2k fizzled out, and then it just kept itself alive, the fuse is still fizzling, this one's still alive we should be very cautious. Maybe the rollover into 2000 has actually only ignited the fuse. Then just how big is this fuse and where does it lead to? So we claim victory, and only look at the activity of the fuse spluttering merrily away and not at what's attached to it as we don't see what that is yet, all we see is a fuse that is burning away !!!!

If I know firecrackers, This dosen't sound good.

oooer I don't like this at all.. It's not a y2k bug, it a digital timebomb. So the fuse was on or just before 1 Jan 2000 and that's now fizzling away doing its damage, (the failing computer systems we've had over the days since the rollover), may indeed be a subtle slow but steady burning of a fuse, how can we ever think to claim victory at such short notice? It looks like Jan might has a fuse while the family of bad dates in the rest of the year might be the firecrackers that are yet to come. Time will tell. We can't do much but watch the fuse burning and hope it is not leading to something big.

PLEASE NOTE: The Firecracker scenario at the moment is just a THEORY. But at the moment it makes the most sense about what kind of thing y2k is and what has been happening, were not seeing much. For we could be only looking only at a burning fuse.

I have another theory. Brent, you absolutely must be:

(A). A serious drug addict

(B). A 3 bottle a day alcoholic

(C). Dropped on your head from a great distance

(D). Still recovering from the full lobotomy

(E). All of the above

Your fuse is limp and too wet to light.

Like Infomagic said, "add to your preps". Yeah, right.

BTW, has the herd started moving yet?
