> A great new software announcement!!!!
> This memo is to announce the development of a new software system. We
> are currently building a data center that will contain all firm data
> that is Year 2000 compliant. The program is referred to as the
> "Millennia Year Application Software System" (MYASS).
> Next Monday at 9:00 there will be a meeting in which I will show MYASS
> to everyone. We will continue to hold demonstrations throughout the
> month so that all employees will have an opportunity to get a good
> look
> at MYASS. As for the status of the implementation of the program, I
> have
> not addressed the networking aspects so currently only one person at a
> time can use MYASS. This restriction will be removed after MYASS
> expands.
> Several people are using the program already and have come to depend
> on
> it. Just this morning I walked into a subordinate's office and was not
> surprised to find that he had his nose buried in MYASS. I've noticed
> that some of the less technical personnel are somewhat afraid of
> Just last week, when asked to enter some information into the program,
> I
> had a secretary say to me "I'm a little nervous, I've never put
> anything
> in MYASS before." I volunteered to help her through her first time and
> when we were through she admitted that it was relatively painless and
> she was actually looking forward to doing it again. She went so far
> as
> to say that after using SAP and Oracle, she was ready to kiss MYASS.
> I know there are concerns over the virus that was found in MYASS upon
> initial installation, but I am pleased to say the virus has been
> eliminated and we were able to save MYASS. In the future, however,
> protection will be required prior to entering MYASS.
> We planned this database to encompass all information associated with
> the business. So as you begin using the program, feel free to put
> anything you want into MYASS. As MYASS grows larger, we envision a
> time
> when it will be commonplace to walk by an office and see a manager
> hand
> a paper to an employee and say "Here, stick this in MYASS".
> This program has already demonstrated great benefit to the company
> during recent OSHA and EPA audits. After requesting certain
> historical
> data the agency representatives were amazed at how quickly we provided
> the information. When asked how the numbers could be retrieved so
> rapidly our Environmental Manager proudly stated "Simple, I just
> pulled
> them out of MYASS".
> Thank You For Your Time
