"The Net" on USA: Y2K plotline

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Didn't watch it, but just came across this plot summary for last night's episode of "The Net" on USA:

"A programmer is murdered after his Y2K debugger fails."

Talk about uptight executive sponsors! Gives a whole new meaning to the term "deathmarch project", doesn't it?

What a bunch of de-buggers!

-- Freeman (freeman@cali.com), January 31, 1999.

Shouldn't that be "Programmers murder the manager who forced the purchase of a cheap but failing de-bugger."
