MandolinPaul BS: Do YOU know what the Y2K bug is? (45) RE: BS: Do YOU know what the Y2K bug is? 05 Dec 99


I'm not so scared of computer problems; what I'm scared of is the problems that will be caused by people expecting computer problems: Mass withdrawals near the end of December can have a huge effect on the banks. As hording of food and supplies can raise economic and safety issues.

My favourite one, though, is one that I read in a magazine at my doctor's office: Some technical guy at Bell Canada said that if enough people pick up their phones at the same time (say, at 12:01), to check for a dialtone, the phone system will overload and shut down.

But I'm still gonna pick up my phone at 12:01.

Paul.
