I can see that coming Fred....we're in the middle of a wood burning society here and
with alll the older technology not even one traffic light freaked nor did the power
companies fail. You don't think all this Y2K stuff could have been a way to make
money huh? Naw, just ask anyone that retired over the last 4 years from reworking
machines or selling "compliant" systems or writing software fixes (the non-free
ones). The local computer dealer (1 of 2) just closed up - not from bankruptcy but
from getting rich enough to retire at 32 yrs old and move on to where he wants to be.
