Y10K-Are we ready?

Emcee:  Jon Scott Type:  Unmoderated
Eventually, we'll need to put some serious thought into this pending dilemma-What happens when we hit Y10K?
Sure, the year 10,000 may seem far off now, but... is it time to prepare? Will our alarm clocks fail to sound? Dual head VCRs refuse to record Letterman? Will members of Christmas Clubs worldwide lose 8,000 years @ 1.05%?
Silly techies AGAIN neglected to program computer systems properly. They just won't recognize a 5 digit year. The year 10,000 will be seen as the year 0000 and in the computer's eye, nothing will even exist.
You'd think we had learned a lesson after the chaos about to be unleashed tomorrow evening, but instead the world must face a certain apocolyptic fate once again.
But while we await the inevitable, let's put our collective investment heads together and dig for those hidden gems that are destined to prosper from this uncertainty.
Good Luck and see ya in 9999!
