Andy: Y2K is over, Yourdon went his way and, so, here we are. TB2000 had to leave in my mind for a couple of reasons: (1) to evolve into the future and, (2) to learn from the past. At this point in time, it does not matter about Ed Yourdon's TB2000, it's history. This forum exists as well as others. I am thankful that there are "some" archives available for research to set the record straight. As long as people keep posting the past here, words from the archives are readily available to back up what really happened. I take exception to the forum GNIABFI - it's no longer available for historical purposes. If it does exist, please point us in the right direction.

I've healed a long time ago from all the wrongs done unto me (and those I've done unto myself) from TB2K and Y2k. This forum now is just a wonderful place for me to rant about this and that, and it just happens to have a damn **&^%^ title that is way past fashionable and so last season. But nothing can be done to change it. I stick around anyway, cuz I love typing and ranting.
So Andy, what would it take for you to get past Y2K altogether and all the wrongness done unto you and others? I'd really love to discuss philosophy or even (yuck!) sports with you for a change. Do you have anything else to discuss or is your whole Teal Colored Persona's raison d'etre to rehash old wounds over and over like the disfunctional spouse in an unhappy marriage?

Did I attempt to "shut down" the Hysterium?
Of course you didn't, AR. All you wanted was for MIT to get TB 1 off the Lusenet forums.
I happen to be somebody who saw the message you posted on Debunking Y2k. You know, the one that urged those at Doc Paulie's place who were calling MIT officials about this to try to sound sane and rational and not like some kind of extremist.
You also provided information either in that message or another one to the folks at Debunking Y2k about who they needed to call at MIT. Your question and answer at the beginning of this thread reminds me of that certain U.S. politician who claimed he never had sex with that woman because oral sex isn't really sex....

Andy is a sissy mama's boy. Always looking for someone to sympathize with him. Aaaaaaaw, poooor baby, you gonna cry again? That's what happens you pooor, poor baby, when you tattletale on people. They don't want to be your friends, and then you cry, cry, cry. Don't worry little baby, mommy luvs you. No matter what we say, the sissy boy will never stop crying, so just give him a box of tissues. Poooor, poor little Andy baby.

Nice to see you! Are you able to join us in Vegas on 10/13 or 10/14 or 10/15 or even 10/16, early? Sure would be nice if you see your way clear... Do let someone know...
-- Aunt Bee (Aunt__Bee@hotmail.com), September 23, 2000.
Thank you for the warm invitation.
If history is any indicator, I would be accused of attempting to "shut down" Las Vegas if I participated in anything there! ;)
I am saddened to say that I will not be able to attend - though I would really like to meet some of the people on this forum, and some from the Hysterium as well.
Having this gathering in mid-October is perfect timing, in my opinion. It provides the perfect excuse for some to attend in disguise.

Andy, you can be "amused" until the cows come home. But you have not traveled the highway. to see the suffering of some. Or else you have forgotten. You must sit high, in some tower, to not see the pain, of those, you are bound to seek relief. Do you think I was born with these words? Am I judgmental? No, not I. It is in your power to bring relief, to someone.
