Terms of Surrender
The following was posted in various places. [This message was given to us by a programmer who recently quit a major Y2K compliance project for the government. He wishes to remain anonymous. - J.J.] Terms of Surrender ATTENTION Federal Government (and others as well): Well, well... After months of us being called names from "chicken little" to "doomsday alarmists," William Jefferson Clinton has finally addressed the Y2K problem and the potential damage that could occur on or before New Year's Day, 2000. This means that you (the government) have finally admitted your weakness - your Achilles heel. With that in mind, we think now is the time for all of us to sit down and have a little chat. Computer experts have stated that virtually every programmer available is in use today, and you still need 500,000 to 750,000 programmers to repair the problems - just here in the US. Since many of these computers use old languages (FORTRAN, COBOL, BASIC, etc.), you are under the impression that the original programmers are long gone. It is this false impression you have that enables us to offer you the Terms of your Surrender to the American public. But remember, this olive branch we offer - this agreement, will be pulled off the table on December 31, 1998. It's your choice. First, a little background: You figured that since those old mainframes that were built in the 50s, 60s, and 70s they were programmed by people who have long since retired. At least that's what you said publicly. But the fact is, many of those same mainframes were upgraded since then. Remember the Reagan Revolution? Yes, all the young corporate raiders - the ones that re-tooled the military, and helped build all those modern skyscrapers. Didn't they also program (and re-program) many of those machines for an ever expanding government? Where are they?
BLAH, BLAH, BLAH

Oh yeah - that's it. Let me shut off the juice to my house and shop out of my basement, cause what I'm "experiencing" is REALLY a coverup. There IS NO electricity -- stores are all closed.
Oh my gawd - why didn't anyone TELL ME? :-)

There actually WAS a survival supply company that wasn't part of Mike Adams and his Arial Marketing? For those of you who don't recall, he was the guy behind Y2kNewswire and had the following websites registered with his name:

Shadow, I believe this message was put up on the site over 6 months ago. If Im not mistaken, Y2K SURVIVAL SUPPLY CO. was operated by a young fellow out of his spare bedroom. He was one of hundreds of these little operations that sprung up to re-sell preparedness supplies on the net. Most of these little companies had no real investment and never touched the inventory as it was dropped shipped to the customer. Because these little companies were processing the customers payment, many were left in the breech when the business went south. A perfect example of how anyone with a nice site can project a quality business operation.

Very interesting, Rational.
