Who remembers 10 years ago waiting for all the planes to fall out of the sky, the nuclear power stations to blow up, and the banks to disappear up their own backsides?

urm, not me. Well I just didn't expect any of that to happen. Come on, computers are dumb.

People are dumber... Your proof: the OP Rolling Eyes Twisted Evil Razz

Anyway, mine didn't start too well. Or rather, last year ended with a big bang that caused damage to my house and my neighbours below. Some ***** threw a fireworks bomb inside the communal stairs at about 11 PM... Fortunately it was "only" a window each (above the door) and I had enough spare wood to cover up the holes for the time being, but it did ruin my evening.... Evil or Very Mad Oh well, we're covered by the insurance, so that's a relief...

Happy New Year, even for the fish (and against my better judgement Wink).... Rolling Eyes Mr. Green

What people forget was the mammoth amount of work that went into updating applications and programs to use a 4 digit year format instead of the 2 digit format. Some applications still have problems if only 2 digit year formats are used - have a look at your spreadsheet programs. A 2 digit year format means that you are only working from 1930 - 2029 by default, so date of birth before January 1930 means that you haven't been born yet. We have about 27 years to fix a similar problem for *nix operating systems (Tue Jan 19 03:14:07 2038 actually). See The Year 2038 Bug for more information - hopefully it will be called The Friday the 13th bug Wink
