Y2K was real. You can thank programmers like me for years of retroprogramming to prevent it.
The interstates in Oklahoma are shut down due to a blizzard. We have about 11 inches of snow and 50 mph winds. We don’t usually have extreme winter weather in central Oklahoma. You can follow the excitement on www.kfor.com, which is streaming live. You just have to hope most people had sense enough to avoid going out today if they had a choice.
But the hype around it reminded me of the global warming hype.
Yup, Y2K was definitely a real phenomenon. Took more than programming to overcome it. I still run into the occasional old file dated 2027. Thankfully I know what that means!
Nope. It was NEVER going to be a catastrophic as many predicted. Never.
