What Y2K glitch?

        We have at least five PeeCees active here at any one time.

        Of those five, only ONE got confused about the date rollover. It was a
1994-vintage 486 system running DOS 6.22. I use it as one of my testbed

        EVERY other system, including my old 486-based server, which any industry
"expert" would happily sneer at as "obsolete," handled the flip-over
without so much as an electronic hiccup.

        Ah, me... all that hype, and the only glitches I've heard of this evening
were only minor annoyances (like Auckland's airport web page reporting
flight dates of 1900). Methinks we're going to hear about an awful lot of
annoyed paranoid people and survivalists over the next couple weeks.

        Happy New Year, gang! Keep the peace(es). ;-)
