There is a scary article by Capers Jones in this month's IEEE Spectrum
explaining several upcoming Y2K-like software problems including Euro
currency conversion, GPS rollover, the nines end-of-file system, the 2000
leap-year calculation, running out of telephone and social security numbers,
and the Unix and C clock rollovers.

Have a nice day.

Regards,
Dave.
