In one of the first signs of how the Year 2000 computer bug will impact real estate, the 4,100 members of the Honolulu Board of Realtors have been advised that their MLS is not Y2K compliant. Beginning in 20 days, Realtors cannot enter any listing with an expiration date after Dec. 31, 1999.

It's okay - the realtors know they will sell everything in thirty days! Gives them until Nov 1999 to fix it.

Is that the same program used here in the "real" world ?
