Where can I find a Y2K forum?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Time Bomb used to a good place to find information on Y2K issues, however now it appears to be dedicated to bad news of any kind from anywhere.

I would like to find a forum that continues to discuss Y2K issues. Things like: What has happened, how it is related to Y2K, and what can be done to either correct or mitigate the situation in order to prevent it happening elsewhere. If any one knows of such a forum could they please provide a link.

It would be my guess that no such animal will exist that has varifiable information. If there is a problem legalities are going to restrict the flow of documentation and if there isn't a problem it still is the Status Quo of watching for chemtrails.

Ask Bonnie or Rick, I don't know? I do appreciate your all your responses. If I have a clue I would let you know.

Try the Humpty Dumpty Forum at yourdon.com. (almost typed yourdon.con)

When Ed figured out the same thing you did, he created his own forum, more closed and still moderated, with similar goals. You have to get his permission, I think.

If, like me, you have figured out Y2K is just another set of computer glitches lost in a larger sea of assorted glitches, and society does not typically learn lessons (which is how the doom-promoters got sucked into predicting Y2K doom in the first place), you can just lurk here for fun.

Michael Hyatt, and Abundant living (an offshoot) both seem to be Y2K sites, although they are now called preparedness sites. I like them both. Good Luck!

Malcom, drop Ed Yourdon a line and ask to be included in this forum. You need a password. You can get it all as it comes in, on email. That is what most of us do as the forum itself is not all that user friendly. Taz

"and what can be done to either correct or mitigate the situation in order to prevent it happening elsewhere."

Are you planning on having another rollover without us? After all we've been through together? Selfish...

Malcolm, if only all the Pollies had been as calm and polite as you, we would have been spared much anxiety!

Go here and be happy, lotsa glitches:

Sent an e-mail to Ed alerting him to this thread. The GICC mentioned above is a good source.

I changed my mail-list to cover the topics you are asking about. I try to keep it from getting personal. Just mail me and I will give you the url. Anyone can join.

No one mentioned Y2K Glitch Central. I'm link impaired so I'll just paste the url.
