I would not want to ride on the back of our hard fought and won freedom to

Talking seriously, a couple of Non Governmental Organizations have setup
help desks here in Nigeria to assist people with Y2K issues, though the
depth of knowledge of some of the staff is another issue.
IMHO - Ordinary folks are used to power outages, Telephones commiting
harakiri, wrong bills and debits from banks etc. It gets sorted out. And
who are those who still have postive balances in banks? Could Y2K be more
devastating than the series of Coup d'etat Nigeria and most African
Countries have seen?
NewsWire - Lagos 2nd January 2000: The official report of the millenium
BOMB council was released yesterday. Whereas the council had compiled a
list of 3042 organizations with non Y2K compliant systems (for statistic
purposes only) only 95% of them were affected by the date rollover. No
Government official was available for comments on the issue. In Lagos the
National capital, all was calm.
Is anyone hooked to a different wire service?
