I've received an approach from a Malaysian ISP, wishing
to contact their NZ equivalents, as the clocks turnover to '00.
I would guess there there will be others, who are interested
in how NZ is faring, and potentially use the 6, or 8, or
17 hours of leeway they have productively in the event
of some unforeseen problem.
I would rather not have the entire worlds ISP support staff
phone their counterparts in NZ to enquire "How it going?".
Given the fact many of them will simply want to silently
observe that there is no problem, what is the best way
to go about this?
Let them subscribe to the nog?
Form a special NOG for the brown-out period 11/99-1/00?
Suggest that no-one in NZ really cares about the rest
of the world, and they can all.......
Appoint Peter Mott as a Y2K spokesman? and direct all
enquiries to him?
Any one any other suggestions?
