>one reliable way to prevent Y2K's massive disruptions: All business
>computer systems must be disconnected, and each computer-using
>employee issued an Etch-A-Sketch.
>
>Microsketch (formerly Microsoft), the new Etch-A-Sketch patent-owner
>and manufacturer, points out that the Etch-A-Sketch also offers these
>advantages over computers:
>
> * Less training required
> * Fewer technical glitches = less downtime
> * Prevents employees from wasting time with email, computer games,
>etc.
> * Bright red color brightens up the workplace
> * Less chance of electric shock, static damage, etc. due to misuse.
> * Full compatibility with other Etch-A-Sketches
>
>To assist employees in adjusting to this new technology, here are
>some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) from the Microsketch Technical
>Help Desk:
