A buddy of mine works at AA headquarters and he says that they are freaking out there over a outage in the reservation system. He says that they are grounding all flights globally. They can't figure out what's wrong and suspect it may be cyber terrorism.

Just because the language supports something doesn’t mean the software written in it does. One changing of a database table without somebody bothering to ask “what’s the new code going to think of the old data, and what’s old code going to think of the new data” and your hot swap just exploded in your face.

Or possibly Y10K, but a little early.
