First hand bug report, awash with irony.greenspun.com : 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.
