Y2K stands for the year 2000, the last year of the
millenium. There are many questions surrounding the Y2K issue, especially in the
realm of computer technology and the ability of computers to properly
The leading theory is that the computer will not be able to tell the difference between 1900 and 2000 due to the fact that the dating system uses only the last 2 digits, it is not 1999 to your computer, but 99.
There is a possibility of computer failure
resulting in the 1) loss of the power and gas distribution grid, 2) loss of
telecommunications, 3) loss of bulk transportation. This is considered the iron
triangle. If any ONE of these fails, the other two, in theory, fail with it.

I don't think people here AESOP fables much anymore, but there is one about the grasshopper and the ant. The Grasshopper played all summer, while the ant prepared for the coming winter. The grasshopper would not prepare. When winter came, there was no food for the grasshopper.
Please don't be a grasshopper.
