So how are payroll systems doing? : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

My understanding was that today was to be a big day to watch to see how payroll computers handled the rollover with the first checks of the new year. I've seen a couple of reports -- is there anything more to add? Seems initially quiet (FWIW, I'm paid monthly and have already received my direct deposit on Monday, so hey).

I only made $30.00 today.

Got paid today, and my paycheck was depressingly normal. In fact, it was autodeposited, without incident.

With ya there on the depressingly normal part, Flint. How dare that one commercial lie to me with the promise that the rollover would put millions in my account? ;-)

But were your waiting with your Polaroid? You forgot to really read the small print.

Thus I am duly shamed. ;-) But really, no big payroll disasters to report beyond the very few I can recall hearing mention of? Seems like another hurdle is overcome, I s'pose...

I'm self-employed and Y2K compliant...I can bitch to myself but it won't do any good...

Husband got paid fine, no problems.
