You know this could be rather funny. You could look at it like those people whose
technology is outmoded such that they do not fix their Y2K problems will die a
horrible death economically as their livlihoods are destroyed. Thus those people
with non Y2K compliant software and hardware are marked with 'the number of the
beast' he he he..... thus the chosen people of GOD are the extropic digerati of
the world, and the old ignorant people and bureaucracies are the minions of the
devil... he he.... If things are bad with the US's IRS, how bad are they for
computer systems in countries like India, China, and Russia??? ....

Those that get the Y2K fix will experience 1000 years of computing Heaven on
Earth, those that don't will burn in the pits of ignorance....

Hmmmmm, sounds like a marketing campaign......
