THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (with a comment)greenspun.com : LUSENET : Grassroots Information Coordination Center (GICC) : One Thread
I just wanted to take the time to thank ALL of the posters that contribute to this site. I wish I had time to look for news to post. I feel I donít contribute enough to this most informative place. Does anyone know how many people visit this site each day? I tell everybody I know about this site that I feel has an interest in our position in life. Itís hard to try and convince the sheeple (now that the lights didnít go out as soon as the clock struck midnight) that things are coming down, and hard. Everything that I told my friendís and family that would happen at the strike of midnight IS happening, but VERY slowly. I feel that things are just now beginning to get REALLY bad with all the postís Iíve seen in regards to computer glitches. If it keeps up, I feel Armageddon is just around the corner based on California power, the global economy, the wars in the East, hoof and mouth decease, HAARP, Chemtrails, water depletion all over the world, riots, heck I better stop there or Iíll fill up my hard driveÖÖ
After the roll-over I was patiently waiting for something wild to happen to my computer. Nothing ever happened. Then all of a sudden, my computer started freak-n out a lot lately. Around April 1st 2001, the date and time can not be kept correctly. Every time I set it, it goes back about 8 to 10 days and 4 to 6 hours. The start menu keeps popping up on itís own at random. Other menu's do too. The entire system will go into stand-by mode on a very random basis and Iíve even turned the option off.
The sick part about this entire ruckus is, I get off on it. The fact that I was right and not wrong comes more into play each day. Little by little the slow destruction of the norm of ones average daily life makes me feel not so stupid. We just may have to go back to the way we had to live long ago. Guess we will find out........NDEWTYME!

I have had a lot of strange computer problems lately, too -- problems that the tech support people simply cannot explain.

Our computer clock has gone whacko too, even changed the battery thinking it was just us. Other strange and unusual problems also, BIOS doing some funny things too. Thanks for posting this, thought it was just me. suzy

Being that there was a Micro$oft April 1 bug
I was suspicious of the US spy plane flying
closer than usual to the Chinese coast on
that date. Were they looking for the effect
of some preplanned bug? Just a wild guess ::::-ß

Talk about weird. After I posted this I called a friend whoís in the next city over (East Texas) and the phone had a lot of static and about 3 seconds later there was a dial tone as we were speaking. Then the phone started the tone, you know, the one that sounds when youíve left the phone off the hook to long. All this was going on and we could still hear each other! He said he just called his mom and the caller I.D. said it was someone lese. He said he would answer the phone and could here his neighborís conversations. Too weird.

Circa 1989, we'd blame a whole lot of oddities on the sunspots.
Who knows, I sure know something odd is going on.

Great Post~ Funny I really thought the same thing! yah the light's stayed on no big deal. All of a sudden the Crud is hitting the FAN! I'm very thankfull that I put in a Wood stove, it kept us from freezing this winter. Many of my neighbors are in dire straits trying to pay the exorbitant power & fuel bills. I really don't delight in all this havoc but it is nice to be right once in a while. Funny how things are unraveling so slowly. Stocks, Power, Medicine, Business. Seems like everything is taking a hit! THIS LIST IS GREAT & I DON'T MISS A DAY OF THE BEST & MOST UNREPORTED NEWS OF THE DAY! TO WHOMEVER IS RESPONSIBLE THANKS FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY OLE HEART.

The whole thing has been an oddesy. We went through the same kind of thing in the 1970's, when gas prices went through the roof. The World did not come to an end, though we had to tighten spending. Any weekly sight seeing in our notorious gas guzzling vehicle, came to an abrupt halt. My husband bought a "Bug", and he worked two jobs, while I baby sit my neighbors two kids. It was not the worst time I have lived. Can someone "Get A Grip?". Talk about "worst times", imagine life without an automatic dryer. We had none such. The "Dryer" was the maid who hung the clothes out. And I have hanged them myself, when the clothes froze on the lines. It wasn't pretty, but you WILL SURVIVE.

This very slow "unfolding" speed of the effects of the Y2K computer bugs is called the "Flood" scenario. This was one of the four likely possible scenarios forecast by the Navy War College, in their 1999 study, which is still on the Web at http://www.nwc.navy.mil/dsd/y2ksited/y2ksite.htm
At least in California, the "crow" and laughter that befell Y2K preparationists in January 2000 has already turned into stony silence. The CA power crisis can be summarized as "Keep the lights on. Don't worry about such trivialities as money in such a dire emergency, just keep the electricity on." Isn't this just about what Y2K pessimists were predicting in 1999 as the "medium case scenario"?

There is a HUGE difference between the 70's energy crunch and our present situation. First of all, the 70's crunch was a derivative of war. Now it's a derivative of computer malfunction as I see it. In the 70ís, the sixth largest economical powerhouse in the world (California) didnít have to worry if they were going to get to conduct business the next day due to rolling blackouts. There werenít as many third world countries with nuclear potential. There is MUCH less respect for the elder generation from the younger, so when things get real bad there is a higher possibility of riots, looting and a disruptive public. People donít respect or trust the police or government as much as they used to and look to them as the enemy in most cases due to their ripping away at our constitutional rights. There are MANY things different than that of our past. The list goes on and on. Our present situation is just the opposite as that of the 70ís with similar effects and may soon be war being the derivative of an energy crunch. Although this is just speculation, itís a high possibility.

Cheers to the posters on this site, rock on fellow reality seekers.
At least we know we are in a handbasket and we have a few clues about our direction of travel, this is more than most IMHO... which is a source of comfort in itself.
