In cyberspace, it's too easy to lose sight of the fact that behind the digital electronic machine interface, stands much human effort and work; on the part of those who provide hardware, software, and work to bring the Internet's content to us.
So many Y2K oriented websites closed down shortly after the Rollover, thereby missing out on the slowly unfolding but still rising waters of the Y2K Bug "Flood". The ridicule and laughter so evident in January 2000 made too many give up, even Gary North. That is such a pity, for the post-roll laughter has now turned to stony silence; and the Y2K moderates have proven to be wrong only in the unfolding speed of Y2K's cascading effects, not its peak intensity (which is YET to be felt.)
I would REALLY hate to see this Website shut down, for any reason other than generalized severe infrastructure disruption, making operation of any website on a continuing basis very difficult and expensive. And I hope the Y2K "Flood" waters don't get that bad, though they well might.
For a serious think tank discussion of Y2K scenarios, published in 1999 but still online, (which includes the "Flood" terminology used here), see: http://www.nwc.navy.mil/dsd/y2ksited/y2ksite.htm
Note the banners, which say "The End Of The World As We Know It?" and "The Day the Earth Stands Still?" These indicate that this grim possibility was taken seriously by a reputable Government sponsored think tank institution.

I agree with Suzy. This is my first site every morning. I cannot find Y2K updates presented on this web site at any other site. Thank all of you involved in bringing us this much needed data.

Ditto what they all said. And I'd add that somehow this site has managed to maintain its integrity where so many others have bit the dust or morphed into something untenable. Thanks to all you hard working folks.
