In one word: Politicians (the only known and recognizable criminal class)

He could blame it on a computer error.

Government consulting is good work if you can get it.

Man, I should have thought of that back in 1998. I would still be rolling in the upgrade dough.

Walken: As a Cleveland native, I'd have to tell you, you don't get it. Mike White wouldn't be a farking asswhore shiathead if he stopped paying them.

It's really rather simple.

What are they doing with the money? It's simple: The contractors take the money, put half in their bank accounts, then the other half in the mayors bank account.

It sounds like this guy hates trying to justify to the council why they should pay for things they really farking need for IT spending so he just files it under Y2K because neither he nor the rest of the farkwits on the city council know how to deal with it.

Sounds like the con-tractors and the conmen of city hall are really milking the Y2K mess.

Microsoft licensing, firewall security and Y2K follow-up

Sounds like its time to change OS's if you need to pay someone half a mil a month to keep your licenses up to date and tweak your firewalls. What do city system admins do all day? Not much it seems.
