Early Warning Signal

What arrangements are being made for an "early warning system"? Has anyone contacted their counterparts in Australia for a briefing on what is happening at midnight on December 31, 1999? If so, what do we do with the information? In my case it would provide a warning of 16 hours in advance of our experiencing the rollover.

A Washington state utility plans to have one of their employees on the east coast the weekend of the big party. That way they can get up to a 3 hour warning about the kinds of problems being encountered out east. This, of course, will work if we don't lose all communications because of the problem ...

I talked with someone at the utility and was told this personally.

We expect to get information passed from Disney business units in the far east and in Europe. It's questionable how directly comparable this information may be but it's better than nothing. And there's always CNN.

We are hoping/ planning to keep in touch with our business counterparts in New Zealand and Malaysia. This of course depends on the international communications systems holding up.

As South Africa will be ahead of many other time zones, I am quite happy to keep people west of us informed of our progress, if we have problems and we are able to fix them. The main system we are running is Honeywell TDC3000. If anyone is interested please let me know.

I would also be concerned about systems that are set to GMT.
