These are just some links in case you want to see what's on the web concerning the wild and crazy subject of "Y2K". I had to get into this a few years ago at my job. (Here's a document I wrote explaining why its no big deal if your PC has the Y2Kdate rollver problem). There's a lot more to the Y2K deal than that, though. I'm not sure what I even think about all this, but here's a bunch of links:

Not necessarily well-maintained or in any particular order, just something I threw together a while back when I found this interesting enough to check into.
