if you read the press, it seems everyone is worried about whether the
banks will still have your money, whether airplanes will drop from the
sky, and if the lights will work.

but what i see is that many companies have waited until now to switch to
new software, and it's being done in a big hurry at the last minute. 

maybe with new software these companies will be y2k compliant, but will
the software run their businesses in the same manner?  what kind of
historical data will be lost in the conversions?  it's not like you can
run parallel for months while you see if the new system works!

or even worse - our forms guy said about a week ago that he was running
his accounting under old peachtree software, and he was going to upgrade
his p/c from window 3.1 to 98 so he'd be y2k compliant!

sigh...
