"Please take this site down. We sell solar electric systems
and equipment, and we are making FAR too much money off of this
panic to stop now. Besides, we figure that when nothing happens,
we will be able to make even more money buying all that unused
equipment back for half price."
"humor eh? OK ? How long do you you think you will hold
out till you eat your cats?"
"No one knows when the end will come, not even Jesus. If
you truly believe and want to help, get on your knees. And don't
forget Who's really in charge."
"How about when the world sat back and laughed at Noah and
his family contructing the Ark (because he took heed of God's
word about the coming flood) and then all those foolish and unbelieving
people died? No one can outsmart God or think themselves above
Him. Y2K may not result in complete chaos, yet we should not
take it lightly. What can we do in this time of chaos, crisis,
and confusion? Seek God, read His word (the Bible), and pray
that He may provide us understanding and direction."
"you know it's amazing 3000 web sites and half of congress
saying its going to happen and 1 web site and 1 schmuck saying
its not! You talk about scams I take it you must be in the Mortuary
Business. the good news either way you don't have to be worried
about getting sued after Jan 1, 2000."
"I think you've hit the nail right on the head. This is
the perfect money making panick haox. If no one would have said
anything then there woouldn't have been the money made. a conspiracy
theory if i've ever seen one!"
"Only a near sited butt head like yourself would say not
to worry about such an obvious problem as y2k. Read Revelations
in the Bible, look at what the great prophets have said - everything
points to the year 2000. Go ahead and be blind like most of the
rest of the world! You know what? I pray that I am wrong! Have
a nice oblivion you knucklehead!"
"This web site is obviously an advertisement for the elevator
companies! Who's fooling whom? I have been associated with the
electronics business since 1956, and the design and manufacture
of computers, and y2k is a real nightmare. I wish it were a hoax,
but wishing doesn't make it so!"
"All I have to say is: Don't stand in line to use MY outhouse!!!
Sincerely, An ignorant, idiotic Moron P.S. But thanks anyway
for the site! Those e-mails are a hoot!"
"I am a 12 year veteran in the IT field, and can remember
what I was paid to write the code I am now checking for Y2K compliance.
Paybacks are hell, and revenge is OHHH so bitterly sweet. I am
now being paid 8 times more to debug code that I originally coded."
"Your web page is wonderful. Unfortunately it will not stop
people from being stupid. I have learnt since I was young that
the basic impulses of human activities are Ignorance, Fear and
"I am a Automation Systems Programmer for a major oil company
and have been involved with Y2K compliance with our embedded
systems in our oil fields and plants. We have completed testing
of our Systems and found NO PROBLEMS! There will be plenty of
fuel for the Ignorant Idiots that purchase electrical generators
and head for the hills of Montana."
"Evidently you don't know Jesus as your Saviour. You'll
be running for the hills like everybody else. As for me I'll
be here with food and amo. defending my home."
"Love the site, as a year 2000 project manager I totally
agree with you. My favorite idea of the moment is to advertise
in thee local press offering to do a year 2000 check on peoples
microwaves and charge them £10 to tell them its OK."
"I don't really mind total economic chaos, cataclysmic inadvertent
launches of nuclear weapons, raw sewage mixing with the water
supply or high security prisons having their doors swing wide
open, but if my VCR fails to record Seinfeld while I'm out at
a New Year's party I'll be really pissed off!"
"Enjoyed your site. After reading the dire predictions spouted
at 99% of the other sites I have visited (most of which, it just
so happens, want to sell me survival food/supplies/remote cabins/etc.),
your site was a welcome breeze of reality."
"Nowhere on your sight do YOU claim to be wise, understanding
or omniscient. You're just having fun, right? Fun I can understand."
"You're telling me this is all a scam after I've already
stocked 700 lbs. Of dry cat food for my 9 cats, and 500 lbs of
dry dogfood for my 3 dogs, not to mention the beans and rice!
This had better come off as they've planned, or I'm going to
"I have studied both sides of the issue, and I wish that
you and everyone involved would simply stop with the sensationalism
and, in your case, understatement."
"Congratulations on an excellent site. Most of it is the
truth. I am a Christian and I see many evangelists and whatnot
jumping on the bandwagon screaming that 1/12000 is doomsday.
They try to push books and video tapes down your throat on this
subject for a good buck. You gotta laugh!"
"I have to write a paper on Y2K for a computer class and
after some searching came across your site. Thank you for your
insight and sense of humor."
"What's with this doom and gloom guy De Jager? He's raking
in megabucks scaring the bejeezus out of all and sundry. If this
man turns out to be a fraud, he should be raked over the coals."
"although i havn't gone as far as stockpiling food, i have,
as a precaution, stockpiled ammo! i really hope that this thing
turns out to be total chaos! I'm sure that i will be willing
to do my part to cull the herd! every nut for himself!"
"Sheeesh, you want to take all the fun out of life? Y2K
is the only way I can get my husband to actually build me a chicken
"Well, there is proof afterall that "Humans can be
trained". We are told that we should panic, committ suicide,
riot , store supplies and freak out over a computer problem.
Sorry, but I for one have no intention of doing that. Human Beings
throughout history have delt with far worse problems than this
"You have missed the point. Your looking at the Bear in
front of you when you should be looking at the 2000 other Grizzle
Bears standing behind him."
"I hope you're right! But just in case I'm stocking up on
toilet paper and spam. Oh, and a little prayer wouldn't hurt
".....my charming and somewhat alarmist wife, who tends
to gravitate towards apocalyptic escathologies anyway, first
became aware of the Millennium bug through the offerings of Gary
North. My first clue was a state of hyperventilation that lasted
for three days."
"Great site! I'm glad to find others who haven't decided
to convert their basements into dry-food, water, and fuel storage.
But SOME of the e-mail responses are depressing (I mean for us
as a species). Keep up the good work. Remember the words of Dogbert:
'2000: It's big! And it's round!'"
"My faith in Human intelligence has been compromised with
the uproar of the Y2K problem. I am not afraid of the year 2000
issue, but I am afraid of those that are... I will have Gun and
Ammo cocked and ready for any sub-human that will not be able
to maintain when 1999 comes to a close... 'FREAKS!'"
