Nope, Y2K is not real, nosirree bob, uh uh, no way no how...

Dozen big UK finance firms face Y2K shut-down risk

Incidentally, please note that this is a threat, not a promise, so to speak, perhaps intended to cower the firms to get their parts in gear. Even so, just another little example that for some reason, someone, somewhere, is taking Y2K seriously... don't know why, though...
