y2k rollover and Typhoon/Cyclone (fwd)

Not really network issue, but it does seem to be a growing issue.
Basically they reject news with date 1900 (Good Thing), and also 00 (Bad
Thing). Had a response from bCandid (aka Highwind).
Worth watching your news logs and making test posts!

Developers and operations are in full swing dealing with this issue.
I have no further update information for you at this time. As soon as the
developers get back to me on this problem. I will let you know.
Information I received while typing this. The problem seems to be related
to RFC 850, two-digit corruptions of ctime dates. There are no other known
RFC compliancy issues at this time. As I understand these date formate
are fairly old, and not in widespread use.
I will you keep you posted.
