-- Possible Impact (, January 24, 2000.

I've just read most of Warren Bone(head)'s essay.

If he and people like him had put as much thought into the original y2k problem as they have in analysing why they were so wrong, then it is probable that so much money would not have been wasted, and so many people would not have been fooled.

Mr. Sane

It is a shame you are off of the methadone again. I guess it must be hard to keep it together.

Hehe justwondering, I reckon i'd get more sense from the average smack junkie on this issue than from the likes of Hyatt, Heller, Bone etc

Sorry to hear your shooting again. :(

-- justwondering (, January 24, 2000.

Mr Sane -

Honest question. Did you have a body of writings, or did you write various essays, outlining your best assessment of the "Y2K Situation" and provide your own comprehensive assessment - whether 'right' or 'wrong' (so easy to Monday's Quarterback on Sunday's Game...huh?)

Truly, I'm just wondering if you went to the same amount of trouble as some of the peoples' MOTIVES you are questioning? Did you goto the trouble to put together a website? Or something we can go back and "pick-apart-like-Vultures-on-dead-carcass"(?) as we are seeing here?

Meaning, do you have a paper on the order of analysis provided by Dale Way, or Yordon's works, or Yardeni, or Paula Gordon's works, or Hyatt's *efforts*, or any number of other concerned individuals, that (I believe) did the very best they could, based on the information which was available *to them* >before< the Jan 1, roll over?

I'd really like to read them...and compare notes - both for what was 'on', 'off'...and/or missed completely?

I'd like to reserve my judgement of 'who did what' and 'why' until I get a chance to make a fair comparison of everyone's inputs...especially before and after 'the event'.

Mr. Sane,

Clarification from (your above): "If he and people like him had put as much thought into the original y2k problem as they have in analysing why they were so wrong..."

Meaning, where's your synthesis of the original Y2K problem which was written before Jan 1, 2000?

-- Nobody Nowhere (, January 24, 2000.

Nowhere, I didn't need to write an "essay"...I finished doing that when i left school.

Being an intelligent person, I realised that y2k was a scam, well before 2000.

Mr. Sane

Come on be truthful. You dropped out of school to enter treatment. We are still waiting for you to come back and finish you English Lit. 101 course.

-- justwondering (, January 24, 2000.

Hilarious. "There HAS to be a problem! Just HAS to be!"


-- lurker (, January 24, 2000.

Good essay. But ignorance know...
