Judging by the interview on the news last night they basically
said that it was a date issue but not one pertaining to the
Year2000 issues, and that the same bug could have happened
1998 -> 1999 roll over.
Although not exactly "network" related, another issue which
is not directly related to Y2K, but potentially troublesome
for some users nonetheless, is the fact that older versions
of browsers contain some digital certificates which expire at
the end of 1999, introducing potential problems with conducting
electronic commerce transactions beginning Jan. 1.
