On This Day Pre-Y2K

After spending more time than I care to admit preparing for a Central NJ Y2k awareness presentation next Tuesday, you bet I’m pigheaded. The evidence that Y2k will cause MAJOR economic and social problems is so overwhelming that it is beyond belief that anyone who has studied this problem can remain unconvinced. Even recent surveys based on self-reported remediation numbers are scarey. Flint, do you not believe these latest figures, or perhaps you believe that no matter how unprepared we are it really doesn’t matter because Y2k has been a non-event all along?

I’ll tell you one thing, after my Tuesday presentation, I plan to get really busy taking care of a lot of loose ends here on the homefront. I’ve done all I can to alert people, and this sparing is a pure waste of what little time we have left. If someone sees another post from me they have my permission to call me every name in the book for not doing enough for my family.

Goodbye and lots of luck.
