Weird Coincedences? Hot hot hotgreenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
Called time and temperature today in Little Rock, Arkansas. Time was 9:42 am, temperature was 99 degrees (I put my coat on before I went out since the actual windchill was 24 degrees). The time and temperature number has been sponsored by and gives you a brief ad for Nations Bank (formerly known as Boatmen's Bank and a couple of years before that was known as Worthern Bank). Have no idea who maintains it. I do not know if the tornadoes the other night busted the thermometer or what, but I thought at the very least it was an eyebrow raiser. Since the numbers 99 are on my brain much more these days, I considered how this might or might not be related to Y2K. Only thing I can figure is someone did some remediation and screwed up? Any other ideas?

These screw-ups with the time and temp have been going on for years around here. Lets try not to attribute everything to Y2K.

Thanks Dave. I'd never heard of it happening before.

Its entirely possible it came from a '99 failure - but treat it only as symptom that for the next two years - you cannot trust any calculated or printed value from any program affecting your savings, taxes, or pay.
