When the clock strikes 00:00:00, 001, 2000, Julian Date, will my computer think the year is 1900, 1700, 0000 A.D., or, perhaps 100?

Absolutely! Unless it doesn't.

Maybe it will, unless it can't....or decides not to....

or chooses to eschew redundancy and obfuscation.

So far, no one has an answer. Is there an answer? Fact is, my computer died two years ago. Couldn't handle 1997. Just wondered if anyone else had thought of it from this angle.

Rick,your answer is too long......but it does obsitfucate substantially well.

Ricky! Time for little boys to go to bed... come home to Mommy!
