Non-Technical Information

  • Everything 2000 - The Millennium isn't just a computer crisis; it's also supposed to be the biggest party to date.  Granted, the programmers won't be there, but they usually aren't invited to these bashes, anyway.  
  • 1/1/00: Not Our Only Date With Destiny - Column 1 article in the Los Angeles Times on 17 August 1988.

Technical Information

"The Year 2000 is like an onion.  As you peel away the layers of problems, you find additional layers of problems waiting underneath.  And just like an onion, the more layers you peel, the more you feel you are going to cry."
          --Peter Worrall, in Acord Magazine

Crisis Survival Stuff

Information

  • Captain Dave's Survival Center - This is an excellent source of medical information, gear, and foodstuffs.  Captain Dave also has a Year 2000 page with specific guidelines for this particular crisis.
  • The Cassandra Project
  • Survival: A Beginning
  • Y2K Chaos - The name says it all.
  • Y2K Survive - This site has some interesting information, but I frankly think it is alarmist.  The question is, how much of the system will go down and how long will it stay down.  I'm betting on the system being up or worked-around quickly.  Site author Cody Varian disagrees. 
  • The American Freedom Network - Yeah, I know.   Preparing for disaster puts you in the same camp as the loonies in Montana.   Well, to paraphrase, "Just because everyone thinks you're paranoid doesn't mean they're going to fix this bug on schedule."
