Did the milenium bug effect you?
In no way did it affect me.
An electronic organiser of mine still thinks its 1999.
Wow, it's year 2004 already and your organiser is still in 1999? 5 years back?
And people wonder why I'm sometimes late.
5 years ago, you were like what 8-9?
As far as the computer I had at the time, it couldn't have cared less.
No ... with one relative minor exception, a specific application. I've got an antique copy of DBase on my system, and it's set up so that 2-digit years are always interpreted as 20th century, with no way to change that. Setting it to 4-digit years works just fine, though.
Remember the panic about banks and the question of whether they could cope with Y2K? Most people forgot that banks have been dealing with mortgages, bonds, and similar extra-long-term transactions since banks have existed, and they were probably among the very first people to check for Y2K compatibility, probably at least as far back as the 1980's.
Give the man a certificate...
I once knew someone who told his parents his computer wouldnt work at the start of the new millenium because of the milenium bug, his parents bought him a new computer.
We were OK here. I wonder was anyone affected at all, never heard of anything.
I was affected in a good way. I had the pleasure of watching the new year come in babysitting computers and making a little extra money.
Not a bit. We even had Quicken 3.1 Intuit work just fine. It kept right on going. "00" nothing blew up everything worked. For me and my family it was alot of hot air about nothing.
That's not to say that if action had not been taken to prevent problems that all would have worked out o. k. Like at the banks.
The company i work for spent millions of dollars preparing for Y2K.
Problem was, nothing happened.
The company i worked for spent millions of dollars preparing for Y2K.
So nothing happened.
The Detox trump - I spent nothing and nothing happened; muah-haha! What a bargain, no
Me too; that is, I was working at a customer care center back in those days and management was expecting an overload of alarm-calls, so we sat there at midnight (for double salary ) and..... nobody called.
(Oh, that's a lie; somebody did call: a collegue, wishing us a very happy newyear!)
Wow, after reading all these posts, what a scam it was.
