fall-out from Y2K glitches, eWatch has added special Y2K weekend

coverage to monitor public discussion and news stories about its

customers’ Y2K preparations.



’They’d rather be safe than sorry,’ said eWatch president James

Alexander.



’The thinking is that it’s smart to spend a few minutes over the weekend

reading eWatch reports, rather than coming in on Monday to discover

major fires burning.’



Because of this, eWatch is offering daily reports between Friday,

December 31 and Sunday, January 2. The added weekend monitoring costs

dollars 495, and is only available to current eWatch customers. Those

who are not customers can sign up for a month of regular monitoring and

the Y2K coverage for dollars 2,490.



eWatch monitors more than 1,000 editorial-based sites on the Web; more

than 63,000 Usenet groups and electronic mailing lists; hundreds of

public discussion areas on AOL, Prodigy, CompuServe and MSN and

finance/investor bulletin boards on Yahoo!, Motley Fool and Silicon

Investor.



eWatch clients who do not sign up for the service will receive their

regular reports on Monday. Alexander said the company expects 75% of its

customers to sign up for the weekend service.
