Who remembers this particular tempest in a teapot? The biggest computer problem I recall having in 2000 was the crappy, crappy connection speed of my AOL dial-up. That and losing a connection if I used my landline.
The Y2K bug was less a genuine crisis than it was a … slightly weird excuse for a themed New Year’s Eve party. Two guys in my little gang on Long Island donned full Haz-Mat suits with fluorescent biohazard symbols spraypainted on them. Then they lit off fireworks in the street.
No … none of the above party behaviors have any logical connection with any potential computer crisis, as far as I am aware.
I and those particular LI friends are all scattered throughout the South now, but I know there were plenty of pics; I’ve got to get a hold of them.
