Scouts-L Mail Archive for February of 1999: Y-to-K switch
Thu, 18 Feb 1999 08:26:31 -0600
Our staff has completed the 3 years of work on time and under budget.
We have gone through every line of code in every program in every
system. We have analyzed all databases, all data files, including backups
and historic archives, and modified all data to reflect the change. We are
proud to report that we have completed the "Y-to-K" date change mission,
and have now implemented all changes to all programs and all data to
reflect the following new standards:
Januark, Februark, March, April, Mak, June, Julk, August, September,
October, November, December
and... Sundak, Mondak, Tuesdak, Wednesdak Thursdak, Fridak, Saturdak
I trust that this is satisfactory, because to be honest, none of this Y-to-K
problem has made any sense to me. But I understand it is a global problem,
and our team is glad to help in any way possible. And what does the year
2000 have to do with it? Speaking of which, what do you think we ought
to do next year when the two digit year rolls over from 99 to 00? We'll
await your direction.
When the mother returned from the grocery store, her small son pulled
out the box of animal crackers he had begged for, then he spread the
animal-shaped crackers all over the kitchen counter.
"What are you doing?" his mom asked.
"The box says you can't eat them if the seal is broken," the boy
explained. "I'm looking for the seal."
