Y2K was fun. We spent two periods of a week each to run loads of sandbox tests. There was an old telexing program, written in Pascal and still in use at some large sites, that went tits up. One of them paid us a ton to fix them. So we did.During the last test, in December 1999, nothing went wrong. On Dec. 31 (a Friday), we went home at about three in the afternoon. Nobody was worried. I kept my phone on, and logged in remotely half an hour after midnight. All was well. Come Monday, we returned to the office. Business as usual.
