Taco Bell registers ringing up receipts for 1983

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

Ventured out for a couple of Enchiritos and Chalupas today and noticed the year posted on my reciept as 1983. I realize this may not have any bearing on the mission critical action: keeping the chapulas cookin. However, if their cash register is directly linked to the software used for periodic reports, this sort of glitch could spell indigestion for many techs and accountants in the coming days, weeks, months, and years. Hmmm..tomorrow will be interesting.

Back away, and drop the chalupa. We may need some backup here.

Sorry, you ask for it.

I work at a KFC and we rely on daily reports to tell us how much to chicken and other products to cook. Will report tommorrow if anything goes awry.

The local Wendys that I frequent has been giving out reciepts dated 1998 for the last couple of months. Had Taco Bell tonight and it said 01-01-00 on the ticket.
