... so on top of the Presto! problem that Publix seems to have every
week, we have this to worry about.  *sigh*

any other thoughts about y2k?  What are you personally doing to prepare
for the next millenium (besides buying lots of M&M's)?  Will it be bigger
than the hype?   Smaller?  what about all the "Count down to Y2K" clocks 
that people are buying now that will be useless on Jan 1st (do they count
as being non-Y2K compliant?)?  

Personally, we were contemplating having a "Y2K Non-compliance" Party and
having everyone dress up in outfits from the 1900's.  But that was just
an idle thought.
