    • In case of emergency, threaten and/or beg your doctor for more prescription meds.

    I was almost 8yrs old when my unstable mother kept me and my younger sibling up ALL night for Y2K. She was convinced-and excited-that we were all ‘going to die and go to Heaven’.
    Then when the ball dropped and Y2K happened, she just smiled softly, shrugged, and put us to bed??
    No apology, no explanation, just took the L and moved on.

      Three things to share...
      1) A lot of people (including me) made a lot of money doing Y2K "fixes."
      2) A lot of that work was actually necessary (banking, medicine) .
      3) A crazy lady at our company was freaked out about it so we trolled the hell out of her (though they didn't call it "trolling" back them). For example, I told her that her VCR was only going to play movies made before 1900. Another guy told her she needed to replace her oven or call a repairman to get it Y2K-compliant. I kinda regret it, but not really because I also kinda hated her.

    "Nothing bad happened on Y2K" is the tech equivalent of "We did all these lockdowns and then COVID wasn't as bad as they said it would be"
    It _would've_ been a disaster, if people hadn't been taking the appropriate steps for years and years. But because they did, everyone just remembers it as some overblown doomsaying. It's enough to make you not want to fix things, so people remember that bad stuff does happen sometimes and they need to listen once in a while.

    • Michael Meadows
      Michael Meadows Miesiąc temu +15

      To a certain extent, the panic was due to the fact that a lot of companies waited way to long to get started and the market for Cobol programmers was really tight since most of them had retired and/or died of old age. That's the "man made disaster" part. The media, of course wasn't interested in the nuance and did everything they could to play up the disaster part even though the problem was solvable: just pay people crazy salaries to learn Cobol and fix the issues.

  • Antares
    Antares 5 miesięcy temu +549

    The big misunderstanding about Y2K is that it was a "false prediction". It was rather an avoided disaster. The reason why it was avoided is because everyone and their mother started talking about, AND FIXING, the things that might suffer computer problems at the turn of the millennium.
    Now, even unfixed it wouldn't make traffic lights sentient, turn water into fire or launch all the nukes... but it could have collapsed lots of energy grids and stock markets and much more, which would be pretty much a massive disaster if it happened.
    My older brother worked with some computer network systems and stuff back then and they did a lot of work to implement the 4-digit year in all kinds of programs and systems to prevent any problems. And in spite of that, he filled up his bathtub with water on new years eve 1999, just in case the water supply failed.
    Thankfully the problems were minimal. There were some minor systems that stopped working and some families of 100+ year-olds that started getting advertisements for baby stuff, but we were fine.
    And when everything was fine on january 1, everybody started making fun of the "computer nerds" that predicted the disaster (and prevented it) because "nothing happened".

      @Emilee Baker I feel like this sentiment is more ignorance as opposed to a lack of appreciation. Like I also assumed Y2K was just mass panic over nothing because I never knew there was a meaningful problem until the exact moment I read the above comment (and to be fair I was 2 years old when all this happened lol, and the prevailing thought nowadays is that Y2K _was_ nothing). It seems most people's exposure to the problem was either sensationalised media that made it seem as if the entire world was going to end, or complete invalidation of the problem. If there was very little actual tangible information about what the exact issue was and what was being done (and had been done for many years by hard working engineers) to solve it, then yeah, people are gonna form inaccurate opinions about the issue. I mean there are probably all sorts of issues that are happening in different sectors of society that hard working humans are working to solve and prevent that most people have no idea about and that's hardly their fault, because the exposure of particular issues is the media's job. To inform people, to bring attention to things. Otherwise there's no way a school teacher or parent or grocery store employee or librarian would know what disasters engineers are working to prevent, how would they unless they have a loved one or relative who is an engineer? But I guess most of the time that is done poorly, and you get situations like the publics response to Y2K past and present.

      My uncle worked in technology for the state of Arkansas at that time and they had done so much work, but several of them were still required to spend NYE in Little Rock so that they could get them in quickly if any of the systems malfunctioned.
      It was very, very much real and it always sort of grinds my gears when people act like it wasn't a valid concern and that everyone was dumb for worrying about it. It just feel like it really diminishes a lot of people's very hard work.

My tears have been my food day and night, while people say to me all day long, “Where is your God?” These things I remember as I pour out my soul: how I used to go to the house of God under the protection of the Mighty One with shouts of joy and praise among the festive throng. Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God. My soul is downcast within me; therefore I will remember you from the land of the Jordan, the heights of Hermon-from Mount Mizar. Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me. By day the Lord directs his love, at night his song is with me- a prayer to the God of my life. I say to God my Rock, “Why have you forgotten me? Why must I go about mourning, oppressed by the enemy?” My bones suffer mortal agony as my foes taunt me, saying to me all day long, “Where is your God?” Why, my soul, are you downcast?

    I remember Y2K. My Grandpa was all in on the crazy prepper thing. He moved to a rural part of the state about an hour away from us, built a water tower, had about 8-10 55 gallon drums full of gasoline, and of course plenty of gold and silver which he buried in the dirt floor of his barn (That was a fun scavenger hunt when they moved to an ALF about 7 years ago). Of course it never happened, but Grandpa was locked and loaded ready for the end. The funniest part about the whole thing is that my uncle who worked as an engineer for Florida Power at the time was on shift that night (All hands on deck just in case kinda thing) and apparently shortly after midnight a drunk driver smashed into a power pole down the road from my grandpa's property knocking out electricity for the whole area. Grandpa never talked about that night but I can only imagine. lol

    I was actually a software developer during Y2K for a major insurance company. While there was absolutely no need to panic there were things that needed to be fixed and we tested our software by doing exactly what you said. We had a server whose clock was set ahead by one year. We tested all of our existing software on it and any new patches we wrote. There were some people in a panic over embedded systems because these (in theory) could have clocks in them that you couldn't easily change. I can say though that nobody I knew in my field had any real concerns .

  • peach_total

    as some other comments have already mentioned, the whole two-digit y2k thing WAS an actual issue that could have caused real failure of core infrastructure. imagine what would happen just to flight routing if all of a sudden every scheduled flight stopped working because all the computers thought the date went back to 1900 instead of forward to 2000. the reason that nothing happened was because programmers knew about the issue for decades before it came into public consciousness and were already fixing it. like the bug literally affected a nuclear plant in Tennesse, and if programmers hadn’t fixed what they had by the time the date rolled around, could have caused a meltdown.
    obviously the people saying it was going to be The End of The World™ were going too far with it, but it kinda sucks that the huge amount of programmers around the world who worked on this problem for years get basically 0 recognition

    My parents went hardcore about Y2K. I was 9yrs old when my family moved from the suburbs of Ohio to a 5 acre remote property on top of a mountain in Idaho. We had probably 10 huge barrels of dried wheat and our own wheat grinder to make flour. We also had 10 yrs worth of canned food storage - TVP, dried peaches, peas, and so much more. It took us years to eat and I think my dad still has a few of those cans left. I didn't really think much of Y2K when I was little. I was just excited about the move because I was promised my own pony in Idaho (which my parents did get for my sister and I.) Anyways reading all these comments brought back a lot of memories.

    Fun fact: Y2K was an actual problem that needed to be fixed. The fix was fairly simple, but it required an update to be pushed onto every computer that used the date. They worked around the clock to replace all the essentials like government computers, banks, power plants, military stations/weapons, and even the majority of civilian products. If nothing had been done it would have been pretty bad. Maybe not as bad as the media at the time suggested(your car/radio wouldn't have suddenly stopped functioning, but gas pumps and radio stations might have), but it would have certainly caused major issues, mostly with banks and the stock market

  • Arthur Davis
    Arthur Davis 6 miesięcy temu +57

    Fun tangent: there were some cheap operating systems that did have issues after y2k, but they kinda just had to pay people to fix it. Many companies invested into making sure that their systems didn't crash, which is part of why why mass failure didn't happen. The other part is that other companies were just using better systems that weren't going to glitch up. And also because what time it is doesn't determine how most things work.

    So a large reason why there were no major problems on Y2K was that the issue was known to professionals for years and there had been work going on already by the time the media sensationalized it.
    As for just turning the date forward and seeing what happens, that was a common diagnostic first step

    I remember getting my mom to put like milk jugs of water in the closet just in case we needed them because….y2k. The hype was absolutely terrifying to us kids. We couldn’t tell the fact from the fiction. We heard “the computers are going to stop” and suddenly thought like….pacemaker batteries would just stop working. Traffic lights switched off. The ferry boat will no longer have radar and will crash into the island (I live on an island…). Just mass death everywhere! And then we had like so many cats to take care of! My child mind was having a meltdown. It was awful.

    My older brother worked as a systems analyst, well he still does, anyway he was hired in 1996 to work for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to assist with Y2K compliance. It was, maybe still is I don't know, Top Secret clearance stuff, but he was talking about the computers they were using and that they were so old that no current(1996 or 1997) hardware could "talk" to them. So they literally had to dust off components from storage and use out of date programming language to TRY to get them to work...
    While he(my brother) had a fairly pragmatic view of Y2K, he did come out of that job scared to death about the status of our nuclear weapon stockpiles. There have been papers published since than about it, but he was saying as many as 20% of our sites were just out contact on any given day. These are nuclear launch facilities...

It wasn't a false scare, it was simply fixed through software patches before 2000 rolled around. Here's a great video about it: plclip.com/video/Xm5OiB3CPxg/wideo.html

    I recently found one of my journals from 1999 and I had an entry from December 31 where I was describing the crazy stuff all the news channels were saying about Y2K and how my older cousin was panicking because she was afraid society was going to collapse (which, in turn, made me a bit nervous as well). I was 11 at the time and I remember all evening, as the clocks struck midnight in each time zone around the world, the news casters would give live updates about whether or not any computer glitches, power grid failures, or societal collapses were occurring in each area. Spoiler alert: everything was fine. They constantly hyped up these “live updates of Y2K” segments for ratings and every single one was just the person at a news desk using that ominous and dramatic tone while talking in circles about absolutely nothing for five minutes. And it got to a point where it was just sad to watch. The next entry in that journal was from right after midnight on January 1, 2000 and it was basically just me saying, “so…we lived…🤷🏻‍♀️”

    5:56 In some cases, they did move the date forward and they saw that things went poorly.

    To be fair, the Y2K problem was real, and quite a lot of errors happened when the year turned. The only reason why only a few major errors occurred was due to the work of programmers.

    To be clear, Y2k was a real thing. There was hype and fearmongering. But it was going to cause potentially disastrous problems. The reason it didn't is because legions of software engineers spent years patching everything. Then when the world didn't end the stupid public concluded that there was no problem...not that the problem had been successfully fixed.

Maybe there’d be some confusion until the computers figured their shit out, but that was pretty much it 😅
    Or maybe all the grown-ups successfully sheltered me and protected me from their panic. I wasn’t the brightest kid, so who knows

    Y2K was very much a real thing and while not apocalyptic it had the potential to cause massive issues on a global scale and the reason why it ended up not being a big deal was because a huge number of people worked their asses off to prevent it.
    Acting like people succeeding at solving a big issue means that it was never a big deal in the first place seems like the worst possible takeaway from Y2K.

COVID is still here and still a problem for most of the planet.
      Also having vaccines after a year and a half of a global pandemic is completely irrelevant to the point being made here that COVID was something to be worried about and was stupid of the commenter to compare it to the Y2K craze.

The how we were chosen and the where is what I don't remember but we all had an adult with each of us, we ran a concession type booth that you find at the fair and we sold sodas and some of us sold food. I remember the other girls really kind of hating me cuz I was paired with the teachers son and the girls thought he was hot. Being with him all night made me think my English teacher dropped him on his head... repeatedly as a child. I ended up being in charge of the money cuz he "didn't want to". I'm sure the only numbers he got that night were to home phones. He was just a teenager. Anyway, I didn't really know about Y2K and the demise of the planet until that night and as the night went on, I got more afraid. At some point I started asking ppl if they believed it and the majority of customers thought it was ridiculous. At another point, and the last of what I remember, except for one last thing, there was this person (a guy I think) posted up under a tree in front of our booth and sang the words so often, I still remember today and I still don't know if it's even a real song cuz I've never heard it since, "it's the end of the world as we know it, and(but?) I feel fine". It was eerie and gd annoying. The last thing I remember from that night was that being the night I learned u were supposed to kiss at 12. This kid asked me to on multiple occasions to kiss him at 12. I didn't know him, I knew enough that that's not something kids do with adults, he was the only adult I was with and I told him no more than once. He eventually found someone his own age to swap spit with luckily and I never told anyone that. My own mom never believed anything I said and she'd blame me for everything, no matter what it was. Needless to say, 12 came and went and reliving all this over reminded me of just how quiet the place went seconds after. Either everyone was waiting with bated breath or they were also swapping spit. End of the worlds just got scarier and scarier as time went on but there's my retelling. Over-worded and boring to anyone that isn't me.

    I was watching this in the living room and my grandma saw and told me that my grandpa, who works at lowes, had to work 24 hours just in case something happened. And she said they celebrated new years over the phone.

    In 2012 I was in my junior year of engineering school. I was pretty jaded about the world ending. I was like "fuck it. Let it end. I hate my existence"
    I think I still feel that way a bit, but a little less.
    I was 10 in Y2K and neither of my parents worked in big businesses so that didn't give me any apocalyptic scare either lol. Or maybe I've always been jaded when it comes to the topic of the world ending....

    Yeah, the gold and silver thing makes no sense. If the apocalypse happens and we have no economy system in place then gold and silver is just as worthless as money. Food and water would be useful for bartering, or like maybe hunting gear. Practical things that you can use.

    As a person who was basically an adult in y2k, I can say that a) I was never worried about my hand mixer but maybe I should have been? And b) this instructional video is insane and I think it was made for the same people who buy InfoWars supplements but now I’m genuinely concerned about how my generation will be represented in the future.

    As a kid I was convinced that the threat was a giant godzilla-style bug-- The Y2K Bug
    Unclear exactly what kind of bug I was predicting, but it's imaginary counterpart did smash through a Lego city and kill all my dolls, so presumably something legit
