A retrospective on the millenium bug

I wrote a post on my other blog looking back at Y2K.  While it is still primarily a blog about software engineering, a lot of the post is repeating and expanding on some things I said about Gary North in my show about Dominionism last year.  Besides, you can never have too much making fun of people for their failed end-of-the-world predictions.

Hey, everyone!  Remember that one time when the banks failed, governments collapsed, truckers were immobilized, people everywhere were starving, and civilization as we know it ended?  Good times, good times.

In the immortal words of John Cleese, “I got better…”

    Nothing annoys me like people who say “why did we bother fixing millennium bugs? Nothing happened!”It’s like fixing the roof and then being puzzled when no rain gets in.
