"Y2K has been responsible for loosening the purse strings
around the office.... Y2K has replaced more borderline obsolete
equipment than begging, pleading, sabotaging, and direct threats
"I've called and/or e-mailed the companies who make or supply
products that I own and use. Mazda told me not to worry---- if
my car doesn't start on Jan 1, 2000, it won't be because of the
millenium bug. When I asked for that in writing, I was told "No."
What am I supposed to believe now?"
"It amazes me how many people who say they will prepare
by taking all of their money out of the bank and if nothing happens
they will just laugh. If they all take their money out of the
banks they will not be laughing. In fact they will probably be

the Ball Drop on December 31, 1999 will be crushed as the ball
falls from the sky at 11:59:59 at night and busts into a million
pieces of Titanium. Sound's like a Hoax to you? I didn't think
so. Good luck on re-programming you BIOS because when the bug
hits, you wont be able to fix shit."
"Y2K is a sham ... PCs wont do much even if they're not
so-called 'Y2K compliant' the most that will happen is they will
go back to Tuesday, March 1st, 1980 big deal."

problem is going to be nothing but a 'one big happy lawsuit.'"
"My lights and TV will go dead and I won't see the ball
dropping in NY. Now if only I could figure out how to build a
kerosene-powered TV set. Can anyone out there help me? I tried
watching my TV by candle-light but couldn't see anything."

but there is none!!"

you are making a big mistake !!! Dont forget about 29 February
(2000 is a leap year). So we will have about a few months of
"It's nice to find a rational site amid this jumble of rumors,
myths, and fact. I stumbled to your site while watching CNBC
Asia.... But some of the things you say that things will go all
well is probably only true in advanced countries such as yours...back

to see if they had a dialtone."
"I do believe that a lot of freaked people will start selling

go back to finding faces on Mars."
"The biggest problem is if everyone hits the panic button
enmasse, sites like yours may become more important than you
"Who do you think you are? Telling the truth to people!

you may be right but isnt willing to bet on it)."

been created to ensure there will be a problem?"
"My Sociology teacher 4th Mod told my class of the extreme
mass destruction the Y2K would cause. His hellish vision also

by his religious background."
"If it is not a big problem then why did the State of WA
announce they are calling out the National Guard? Are you smarter

Perhaps, since the Year A.D. 2000 just sounds so cool, everyone
is anxious to include it in their predictions or beliefs."
"I would like to thank you for a wonderful page that has

awaiting their monitors exploding -- brownouts will be the only
