report from the caribbeansgreenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
Hi there, The ship service from NJ to P.rico is working properly and also the ship services from Italy to P.Rico and South America .we have rceived containers that have arrived here the 1/4/00. In my company (around 200 persons) I just fund out that the system is still running at 1999 dates.We have not yet installed the new systems workingin cobol redone with 2000 dates. The production schedule is going ok and we have not found any problem in embedded chips or any other chips. Myself as I did not found any error in the bank for 15 days (I use to check everyday with the computer) I put back the money I had taken out 12/28 . God help me!!!!!! I am also strating eating all the stuff I had bought at the end of the yera.

Question: Since your company is still running at 1999 dates, how come you're eating your preps? Are you sure there won't be big problems at some point down the road?
Just an Indiana housewife,

Hi, Alex, my sympathies as a former husband. (3 times!) Women run the world, and some of them are right and some of them are wrong, but they run the households, and they run the world. That is why men invented garages and cars to work on. Allan

Alex...you might want to consider the value of maintaining preps (e.g., stored food and water) in the case of a hurricane... (We get them on Kaua'i, too!)
