Dear IT Experts and Professionals,
Yesterday there was a transmission on the above by a Consultant to
UNDP involved with the,preparations to mitigate on the effects of the
2000 bug. Unfortunately someone deleted this very important message
before I was able to save and print out for use by my people.
Please any of you who still have this important message or if the
Consultant himself gets this message,kindly re transmit the text.
This will enable me get to it.
We are an IGO involved with training regional experts on IT and EI.
Thank you. Martins Chodota, P.O.Box 18118, Fax no.254-2-802767,Nairobi.
