Hmm, who was this clueless manager who decided to do such things in the 1-th of
January. I guess the programmers over the world will be very busy during january
looking for the hidden Y2K bugs and fixing it, and why RADB decided to add some
more troubles just in this days? Why don't wait until, at least, February? What
terrible happen if this changes will be delayed a little?
