Y2K NO WAY!

31 Days of Holiday Memories!!

Day 27

I remember New Years Eve 1999 into 2000. The whole Y2K thing….

A lot of people were worried, some pretended they weren’t, but still had that “What if…?” whisper in the back of their head.

I didn’t really understand it. I understood the thought behind it……but I mean computers were still pretty smart even back then. I think they understood how numbers work.

Anybut, I remember as soon as the clock hit midnight (in Indiana, that is), my brother and I ran into our dad’s office to see if the computer exploded. I mean, that’s what WE thought would happen. Not our dad.

Though I almost wish it had gone down like people predicted. Have any of you ever seen the Dilbert episode about the Y2K bug? How it actually happened and the city sort of turned back into medieval england?

Yeah…maybe that wouldn’t have been so bad. I mean look at us now.
