Finally, the long overdue "death by a thousand cuts" "bump in the road" y2k problems begins to manifest in Europe and Russia:

Fuel protests spread across Europe German, British governments vow to resist tax-cut demands LONDON, Sept. 11  The British and German governments said they would not give in to demonstrators who snarled traffic and blockaded refineries Monday to protest high fuel prices, and an OPEC decision to boost production did little to curb the demonstrators anger.

I guess I better go grind some wheat and make some pancakes!

Sorry folks, I just couldn't resist stirring up a little controvery. Life has been a little boring lately (grin).

Strangely enough, the only Y2K related major disruption I have seen is the Y2K related CPR spamming of this forum!

Et all, the Y2K would not have possibly have lend it'self to the "cornerstone of the elite neighborhood, who found themselves without a job, or 15K lighter, due to their companys decision to cut some, swipe some, with a financial knife. I questioned my sanity. I, who took precautions, and have dwelt on the outskirts, watch all that unfolds before my eyes. I see, am brought to see, riches fall. Do I have a wish to take advantage of those who fall? No, not I. But if the difference lies between me and the tax collector, I have been down that road, in human skin,whist I had no control, and the empty forum of my Mothers Estate, lies because she left no written ordanance, and as the oldest child, enough, already, you had to be there, I close.
