Anyone getting excited for the Y2K?
I can't wait to see what will go wrong!

I read in some magiazine that 1/3 of Americans were going to buy food and other essentials for few weeks. Is it true?

I don't think that anything big will happen (, I think!)

I've read an article that says that just because things seem to go fine for Jan 1/00 that something may happen later in the month/year. Also it said that the problem is not only for 2000 but may also affect 2001. If that is true, nobody will be getting prepare for 2001.

I think there is some problem with 2000 being a leap year. So there will be many Y2K problems (or just one very long)

If the system is prepared for 2000 it will also be prepared for 2001!

Has anyone here ever written a program that would crash if it were ran in 1900? So the dates are a little screwed up, big deal! I work in the Y2K department of the bank I work for and when we tested it, it still ran. Some of our reports were off (they were showing the year "19" or "20" since we were getting the first 2 digits of the field) but that's about it.

I'm just going to prepare for hording. I'm going to make sure I have enough gas and cash. Not because I think their computers are going to crash, I think people will be preparing for a month without anything.

I realy hate media hype.

I do not make software "releases". My software "escapes" leaving a bloody trail of designers and quality assurance people in its wake.

Damn. And I have 6 months worth of beef jerky and bottled water sitting in my basement.

Sigh. ;)
