I can't stand it any longer.  The first time I thought it was funny, but if I
read Y10K one more time!!!  I could understand being thoughtful and thinking
about Y3K ... but I don't reasonably think that computers will even exist in
8000 years .. or humans - at least as we know ourselves.  Im not trying to bash
anyone, but I just wanted to bring up the obvious.
If we are going to worry about Y10K, why not worry about Y100K ?
