U.S. is "Just About OK for Y2K"

Enmity_qXp What me worry? (220 comments)

power outages, atm machines gone crazy, sewage treatment plants overflowing.... yadda yadda yadda. In my building the worst thing that may happen is the desktops will think its 1900 (until i go around and manually set them)

lets face it kids, y2k is just big media hype.

i was doing research into y2k issues with our suppliers and one had a very simple policy:

"No matter what happens on January 1st, we will still be able to bill you. Pencil and paper made it through the last millenium change, and we see no reason to think this one will be different."

this my friends is a good policy.
