I'm an IT professional for a major global corporation. I know what I say in public :) ........I am prepared to the hilt.... :(

Lady, Not "everyone" has to lie; any percent over 20% is sufficient to cause havoc on business continuity.

My company could not reliably become y2k compliant no matter how much capital and effort I committed but since I value my post-y2k reputation, I have "satisfied" my clients in an alternative way which happens to avoid most potential y2k disruptions.

(my company's strategic guidelines compells me to avoid unexperienced expected negative events of magnitude greater than 4 standard deviations.)(3 s.d. is an opportunity, 4 s.d. is suicide)

Even if by some miracle they are totally right, I'll still keep my supplies in order since we don't know what the terrorists will do. I'm glad I didn't listen to You Knowwho.

"IT managers highly confident of success, especially among suppliers and customers"

Should read "IT managers in Ozarks with beans-and-rice-pipe-bombs, so let janitorial staff fill out reports, stating they are highly confident of success re: y2k compatibility of company's mop and bucket, especially to suppliers and customers"

Subtitle: Now if we only have water...

It's just words. Meaningless. 10 days until we find out, but until then, I'm watching what TPTB are doing, not what they are saying.
