My first bug sighting... : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

...and yes, the world will survive this one, but interesting just the same:

Went to the Times of London web site ( tonight--Monday's paper is already posted--and I couldn't get the Sunday or Saturday papers from the back issues area. The dates came up as invalid. Friday's paper came up just fine.

That said, I think we're off to a good start. My worst-case scenarios always had an element of panic, and I felt the worst panic risk was from about Dec. 26 through rollover. But everybody kept their heads, and we escaped having any failures serious enough to trigger a stampede, so whatever happens in the weeks ahead, it should be easier to handle. I still see a serious threat to the economy if and when bugs start to pile up, but all we can do now is wait.
