First hand bug report, awash with irony. : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Need a new category: bug reports.

Telecomm company R&D, bug report event handler database running on VMS. We can only enter dates of 10/00/1910. No, I don't know why.

But it's OK, we were already changing to a less stone-age system (Clearcase, UNIX). Whoops, turns out our license expired on 31-Dec-1999. Can't think why, we only just installed the damn thing in November and bought a year's license. We must be delusional. Yes, that's probably it.

It's not fatal, but it's hampering us. Fortunately, our phones don't have Y2K issues, just the usual plethora of normal bugs.
