I read this to mean that most think Y2K problems are behind us at least in the technology sector.

OK, but there's a difference between people thinking the problems are behind us, and having the problems behind us. We may still get some rude shocks in the months to come. People could have huge reactions to small Y2K problems. We really don't know. I expect volatility to be high for the next four months or more, as we make this transition. I don't expect it to all be up.

For the record, I'm long on QCOM, JDSU, SUNW, EMC, and CTS. (And others, but those are the ones I'm bragging about, this week.) I am enjoying the runup in techs. For now.

Who had a Y2K failure at work this week.
