Will the date change from 12-31-99 to 01-01-00? Whoops! What happened to the century digits in the date?" "Most programmers and virtually all hardware manufacturers were shortsighted not to foresee the disaster that lurks at the turn of the century. There is a very strong possibility that this bug is in any program that uses a year in a calculation. That is, the millions of lines of instructions running daily on hundreds of millions of computers - both large and small - could come to a screeching halt, or worse, generate inaccurate data that is hard to uncover." "Fixing the problem is far from simple. The solution involves a sizable commitment that needs immediate attention. Solving the Year 2000 Problem explores this never-before-seen problem in great detail and explains the inside ways to stamp out the bug before the bug stamps out your programs."--Jacket." ;
