Hey, what's everyone worried about. According to a UK web site: PC Dateguard Year 2000 Compliance Utility


we have 693944 days, 12 hours, etc. to go. What a relief!

My SigO works at the local ISP and called laughing her head off. Suggested I check out the site and I got a giggle too. Maybe they saw the error of their ways. She received the note from one of her ISP friends.

Can someone provide a link to this site? I went to the URL listed and didn't find a clock/date.

You can highlight the url I posted, paste in the address bar & hit Enter. Really, why would I make this up?

No clock showed up using Netscape 4.5, but the 693944 day clock showed up using IE 4.72 You mileage may vary.

I noticed the clock was counting UP - ie. the seconds were going 52..53..54. Not sure WHAT they think they are counting.
