As part of my “sayonara” decision, I’ve been looking for someone to take over the task of serving as a moderator/sysop for this forum. A group of forum “regulars” is in the process of organizing themselves; for the time being, they would prefer not to identify themselves by name, but these are people whose postings I’ve read over the past year, and whose objectivity, maturity, and common sense I respect.

I think a lot of good discussions will continue to take place on the forum, and I’ll be lurking from time to time. Best of luck with your own Y2K plans, whatever they may be.

Several people have emailed me to ask that I keep my Y2K essays and articles on my site, along with the links and resources.

I’m willing to do so for now, though I won’t be updating them or adding any new information. Depending on how things develop over the next month or so, I may decide to remove all of it by the end of June -- so I’d recommend that you download or print or distribute any of the information that you find useful.

For those who look for “secret meanings” to such announcements: no, I don’t know of any new or specific or secret Y2K events, announcements, or decisions looming ahead of us in the next few weeks. Indeed, I suspect that it’s going to be a very quiet summer, as the American public focuses its relatively short attention span on vacations, baseball games, etc.

Thanks, Ed
