Y2K Bug!!!!Do u remember the time?

1. I was just wondering about the time when the much-hyped Y2K crisis had come in with a long, sustained roar and went out with a mewl.While the world excogitated dire predictions of massive global infrastructure failures -- everything from elevators to air traffic control systems was rumored to be vulnerable , the specter of a total paralysis of business operations resulting from cascading Y2K failures galvanized organizations into a frenzy of activity. For many CIOs, the unprecedented size and scope of addressing Y2K problems was the biggest project of their careers.

And then it was over. On Dec. 31, 1999, the world held its breath and nothing happened. Jan. 1, 2000 came in just like any other day. There were no major failures to report anywhere.

2. Today after 10 years....I feel the time has just rolled like a ball....so quickly we are a decade ahead of that night....the night that was a wakeup call for every one who felt that there is no need of IT then....the night that showed how heavily we r banked on the IT......

3. Thanks to http://www.computerworld.com for making me remember that.
