Y2K over??? : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Is Y2K finally over?? Are supply chains not affected?? What about the IRS?? Did they fix their computers in the last two weeks??

In other words, is it ALL OVER? Or will the shoes start to drop?

Losing it--PG&E doesn't think it's over, read my post directly above yours.

Do we all have to hold your hand? Glitches are growing and people are watching this closely. Bear in mind all the isolates are difficult to add up for a single individual. As for companies candidness of their shortcomings (glitches), you will be the last to know, given your ability to investigate.

From the trenches, I've been told by others working elsewhere that minor Y2K snafoo's ahve occured. But....they were fixed promtly and had minor or no impact upon business/operations.

Keep in mind two points. First, glitches happen all the time...and are fixed all the time. Second, with as much attention surrounds anything with a Y2K label on it, you can bet the best and brightest will be assigned to squash any bugs that DO occur -- and thus the net affect will be a non-event --- just like it has been since 1-1-2000.

Up to hear,

We actually do have the ability to investigate. If they are to be believed we have the sources here on this forum. But as I've posted earlier today in "Lessons Learned About Y2K" the inside sources still post anonymously about anonymous companies and use anonymous sources. Not every one of them could possibly have signed non-disclosure agreements - still they won't disclose.
