CITY SLICKERS: Boardroom TALES.
According to Jim Coulter, chief executive of the National Housing Federation, the Y2K problem could lead to many housing federations not paying their housing benefit in time.
This, in turn, could lead to tenants and private landlords not getting their cash, and everyone ending up broke by next February.
TALKING of computers, Britain's first ever "computer nightclub" is set to launch early next year. It's the brainchild of London-based Internet expert Matthew Edwards.
The plan is for a rave-style club open every Saturday night, where guests can chill out after a session by logging on to the Net.
Edwards, who plays the flute and drums when he's not computing, has raised pounds 4 million for the venture.
He told Slicker: "Just imagine it. Get a few beers in, get on the dance floor, get some chicks and get on the Net. What more could any man want?"
The way the Internet's going, Matt's heading for at least pounds 500 million on the back of this idea.
