TO POLLIES: TAKE A LESSON FROM THE WEATHER AND PREPAREgreenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
I think the rollover is the signal for the storm clouds to start gathering around the computers, it could either be a light drizzel, or a downpour, or a washout. I think that's why some companies at the end of this will find themselves floating face-down in the water, we hope y2k don't hit with the force of a hurricance or there will be many thousands of businesses with their faces in the water and if a bad storm hits, the economy will probably be blowing a few bubbles as well as it goes under (we hope not, but y2k is unpredictable just like the weather it could turn ugly in an instant or carry on as it is.) Keep a close eye on the rain that is currently descending softly on the computers to see if the weather suddenly changes for good or for worse. I noticed the glitching (rain) around the world is slowly increasing.

Well the almighty FED say 7% of businesses in the USA will tank this year due to y2k.

What is the percentage of businesses that failed to do anything about preparing for y2k in the U.S? Also overseas impact is not mentioned in those percentages. Big companies can't survive without the small businesses for they are needed to stabalise the big guys. Without that balance then everything starts sliding off the scales literally.
