They, like most other people have moved on. Ummm...they were wrong just as you are now for beating this dead horse in a dead forum.
Get a clue and a life.

This is a great web site for links to info on catasrophies like running out of oil, epidemics, global warming, astroids and other doomsday info that is fairly serious in content. Not meant to make fun of the issues because they are real issues. They give motivation to keep your life in proper order because you never know when the end will come for us all or individually.

Actually, there is benefit to keeping this forum around. If nothing else, a lot of folks got exposure to the Mormon philosophy of keeping a year's supply of foodstuffs and supplies. In the event of a disaster ( unless, of course, you happened to be at Ground Zero, in which case it wouldn't matter ) it pays to keep the idea of preparedness in mind. I, for instance, have a couple of oil lamps that have come in mighty handy in power outages. In fact, out in remote parts like Iowa and the Dakotas, people still have oil lamps for just such an event. It's not some goofy notion--out there, people could die without some way of dealing with outages. Heck, in the years leading up to Y2K, I figure there were a lot of folks that began to realize that meat does not manufacture itself in cellphane and present itself on supermarket shelves, nor do fruits and vegetables magically appear, nor does the mere turn of a faucet produce water. There is a lot going on, and there is always a problem with complex systems ( ever have a water main break forcing you to boil water? ). I had attended community meetings in which the rooms were crowded, because people were genuinely concerned. So were government officials. Fortunately for all, enough folks took things seriuosly and kept the systems running. This is the second time I've wandered onto this forum since the clock turned twelve on Jan 1, 2000. I intend to refer to it in the future, mainly because I am building a cabin on some remote property as a vacation getaway, at which there is no electric power, no natural gas, and no running water, and it is located in a place where the weather can get pretty harsh for 6 months out of the year.. There is good information on this forum that shouldn't get lost, and to mock it.....well, suit yourself.

In answer to your question Troll-Tard, Its just around the corner!. Y2K would have been a very serious if it had not been for all the hard work, and attention given to the problem. The Millennium has passed, but the "Madness" is still with us htpp://www.rense.com/general30/insane.htm Plus on top of the 95% chance of WW-3 in the next few months, we still have a 99% chance of a world-wide economic meltdown! http://www.rense.com/general30/germ.htm . The chances of you surviving either of these are far less that the Y2K shutdown. Thats the "COLD HARD FACTS OF LIFE" Dude, sorry to put it to you so bluntly, but you asked for it!. Cheers, HH.
