Comment: 

This COMPUTER WEEKLY NEWS story (Sept 11) reports on New York State's rule: no new computers until the old ones are repaired. (See the Governor's executive order, which I posted on August 27 on this site.)

The article ends with a summary of Corporation 2000's summary of bad things that could happen in New York City in 2000. I regard the list as overly optimistic.

* * * * * * * *

Electricity: supply only 50% available 1-10 January

Hospitals: emergency-only for four weeks

Schools: closed for four weeks

Stock market and banks: closed for eight days

Telecoms: 50% availability 1-10 January

Transport (air/rail/bus): 30 days disruption
