Background


The Year
2000 problem (also known as the Y2K problem, the millennium bug, the Y2K bug,
or simply Y2K) was a notable computer bug resulting from the practice in early
computer program design of representing the year with two digits.


This caused
some date-related processing to operate incorrectly for dates and times on and
after January 1, 2000 and on other critical dates which were billed “event
horizons”.


Without
corrective action, long-working systems would break down when the “…97, 98,
99…” ascending numbering assumption suddenly became invalid. Companies and
organizations world-wide checked, fixed, and upgraded their computer systems.


The
following are documents pertaining to this topic.
