Y2K Bug Hits Silicon Valley?greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
It's 9:00AM Saturday here in Silicon Valley. I went to work to catch up on some email (and do a bit of websurfing on the 2000 news).
But I couldn't get into the building. My security card wasn't recognized. This has never happened before.
The security guard said the system failed at midnight last night. A call is in to the vendor.
Y2K failure? Certainly looks like it. I think we'll see more of these glitches as people go back to work. Lots of minor problems. Might be interesting.

The power thing may have been assoicated with the transformer/plant problem they had and rerouted. just a thought.
Anyone know if the card is working yet that wouldn't swipe.
