Happy New Year to all on the Midrange-L and thanks for the invaluable
help that has been provided by all to all. May 1999 continue to
provide the lively exchanges that can only improve each of us that
pose questions, post answers, and learn from just monitoring the list.

I don't really want to be a pessimist but the following kept
developing in my gray cpu as I was trying to finish up 1998 and I
thought the list might enjoy it..


Welcome to a new year,
the one before the fear.
Because Y2K
cannot be kept at bay.
For all those who jeer
will be crying in their beer
The CFOs will laugh all the way
to retirement, no problem they say.
The AR may no longer be in arrears,
the customers will pay off in 100 years.
The judgments they must pay.
When the courts hold sway.
Everyone must now hear
for dying time is near.

The CFOs laugh
at the ITS staff.
All the things you say you need to do
but spending makes my face turn blue.
No need to spend on a fix up
because I'll retire by year end with luck.
I'll put my money away in a stash
and watch yours go up in a flash.
Convert all my stock
to gold in my sock.
Everything will be in cash
before the year end bash.
Iíll crawl back under my rock
and add another lock.
So what if the programs crash?
By year-end I'll be out in a dash.
Stock certificates will burn like wood
but Iíll swear I've done all I could.
I've made the profits look good,
and then run from the hood.
So what if next year the company is trash
I am not going to be rash
and give up my bonus cash.

Roger Vicker, CCP
