The monthly contest for the stupidest thing said about the Year 2000 problem*

We'd like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank all of our regular contributors and readers of Duh-2000.  We appreciate all your help in making the Duh-2000 contest a fantastic success. We had no idea when we started the contest 500 or so days ago that our silly little website would be as popular as it turned out to be. 

We would also like to thank all of you who worked very hard *on* the Y2k problem.  We've always tried to keep you amused and enlightened, and we hope we've brought you a chuckle or two in the midst of a tedious and often thankless job.   Some of us do indeed appreciate all your hard work!

And what will become of Duh-2000 after 1/1/2000?  Well, we have our Y2k Person of the Millennium Award to give out (two guesses who that will be, and the first doesn't count); we'll have all those stupid things said about the Y2k problem after the fact; and, we'll let you all in on our plans for the *next* contest!

So visit us again after the New Year's and see what's up.  Oh, and one more thing: your humble webmaster will indeed be on vacation on a boat somewhere warm between Christmas and New Year's, so don't panic if you don't hear from us or see any new updates on the site until January 3 (I still can't believe the boss didn't want to spring for a satellite modem for my laptop).

Happy Holidays to all of you.  Have a safe and fun New Year's, and we'll see you in the next millennium.  Thanks again!
