Y2K Madness
 
You big dumb dogshit-eating extropian!
-- Ratsnatcher

 

Now, I don't know how many times this has to be said, but I'm gonna say it again: the Y2K problem is NOT a technical problem. The technical stuff is easy. It's the roaming mobs of starving maniacs that's a little hard to deal with.

Anyways, I found this particular Y2K site on MSN.com especially noxious and cloying. First off, it doesn't talk about the "Y2K problem." No, it's the "Y2K challenge." Turn that frown upside-down, sour puss! This is a chance for personal growth.

Next, it's got a ton of helpful hints to make sure your own personal PC isn't going to crash on 1/1/2000. Well, whoopity-doo-dah-day. The main use for your PC after Y2K isn't going to be for balancing your checkbook -- it's going to be for barricading your doors. HINT: you can cut someone's throat with a shard of monitor glass.

The worst part is that it's got lots of SICK finger-pointing from a Microsoft perspective. Like, is the only mention of Linux ever on an MS site the article "Is Linux Y2K compliant?"? What the hell is that about?

If you want some good gallows humor, check it out. Enjoy MSN while you can.

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
