The Rotterdam Report? : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

I'm Looking for anyone with information about this report.

There is an interesting report coming out soon. It is called The Rotterdam Report. Mike makes mention of it in his email to me. This is, in short form, what the Rotterdam Report discloses: 1. Of all Windows 95 and Windows 98 based personal computers, all slowed down immediately after January 1st, 2000. Within 5 to 6 days they all completely ceased to operate. 2. Of all Windows NT based personal computers, all ran fine past January 1st, 2000, for about 5 to 7 days whereby they all crashed and completely ceased to operate. 3. Where our Y2K technology was used, no personal computer experienced any problems.

The Technology spoken of is mfx2000. Http://

This sounds like spam to me. Trying to sell some software with scare tactics.

"Of all Windows 95 and Windows 98 based personal computers, all slowed down immediately after January 1st, 2000."

I dont buy this at all.

Does anyone have information about this report for REAL>>

Why don't one of you PeeCee techies leave a machine on with date set for roll over and use zdnet testing software (speed, gfx, FPU, etc.) from time to time over the next two weeks.

I'd do it my self, but got a better, more stable, easier (and fun) to use computer/operating system (not a PeeCee in the house!).

PS: This report does not make sense. How would a date-related clock slow a computer down? ...unless going back in 'time' slows everything to 1900 standards.

I think you mean the Crouch-Echlin Effect, or Time Dilation. There was some talk about it 8 months back. Seemed to be real, was reproducible. Something about PC clocks slowing down, on a fairly irregular basis. I haven't been keeping up with current posts.

Try this.

The Rotterdam Report will confirm or deny the predictions of a Y2k operating system slowdown hypothesis presented at the Royal Society in England on Oct. 5, 1999. If confirmed, "Wood-Dream" will be a very wealthy person.

We have run 486 and Pentiums for about a week in the year 2000 with no obvious problems. We do notice some of our systems lose a few minutes on the clocks but it happens to almost all of our computers running any O/S and any date setting.

Wood, went to the site MFX2000 and i ran the audit on my computer. Out of 13,368 files scanned 3600 were having or going to have Y2K issues. Can you get a copy of the Rotterdam Report and Post it?

Can Someone run this sites info and tell me the truth!!!! Http://
