For the record, I’m not posting this because I want to talk about climate change. Not at all. Where were you during Y2K?

I was at work at IBM. I used to work there in networking. We had the midnight shift to make sure all the routers we were in control of switched over fine after all the updates we installed to make sure it would. Everything went smoothly.

It was the first NYE after being married too. So romantic.


  1. I saw one effect of Y2K…a gas pump gave me a receipt with 01/01/100 on it.

    I guess we all did a good job preventing issues. Our work systems had no problems and we made tons of mods done during those final 9 months surrounding the issue.
