From UK: FT kills records in Y2K bug scare

UP to 25,000 investors had online records of their portfolios wiped out after bosses at the Financial Times ruled it would be too costly to make its share tracking software Millennium bug resistant. Former investors who used the FTQuicken site to monitor the value of their equities must now re-input details of shareholdings into a new FT site, which could take several hours for bigger portfolios.
