Hi usboy.

I don't mean to start a new 50 message thread on the subject, but is everyone unemotionally pressing on with the various screens? Will the basic concept behind them carry through with only hiccups? Or will the Y2K problem cause some bigtime trauma in the last quarter and first quarter?

IMHO, the fear of Y2K is going to cause more disruptions than any actual computer-related problems.

I plan to sit back, relax, and look for some buying opportunites late in the year.

Sure, there will probably be some short-term problems that are computer-related. Prepare for them the same you would if you were going to sit out a hurricane. That is, fill the car with gas and lay in enough non-perishable food and water to last a couple of weeks.

If you look closely, you will see that most of the people who are making all the noise are selling something. If not a book on the looming disaster, then survival supplies or such.

My $.02.
