Many links are probably out of date and won't work. The pages are left here for reference
This page provides a little basic information, and links to Year 2000 resources which are publicly available on the Internet. Please note the Pocket Website philosophy.
The Pocket Guide aims to include primarily sites which are good gateways to a range of other resources, and not to be an exhaustive index of everything. The structure has been stable for a while now, and the structure seems to work; but, even so, its structure may change without warning. We recommend you bookmark only this page.
We must have been doing something right. The Pocket Website got three times as much traffic in December 1999 as in a normal month! Thanks for visiting!
It is maintained on a "best efforts" basis. We will try and fix errors, but this is a spare time occupation! Please send comments to Parkside Information Management. Find out what has been recently changed.
Dates in (parentheses) after entries indicate when the reference was added to a page. They are for display only, and I don't think "00" will be confused with "1900", so only 2-digit years are used!
