Poll Preview: A-OK for Y2K?

Poll Preview: A-OK for Y2K? The world did not end at the stroke of midnight on 01-Jan-00 - nor did the world's computer systems come crashing to a halt, even in regions that had taken Y2K-preparedness lightly. It's tempting to laugh off Y2K hysteria now, but according to estimates I've seen, between $300 and $600 billion was spent worldwide on addressing Y2K-related computer problems. The fact that 01-Jan-00 came and went without significant problems is indicative primarily of the effort put into ensuring that Y2K would not cause troubles, not that concerns were unjustified. Those who spent the last few years slaving over old code and testing systems deserve a lot of credit for ensuring that New Year's Eve could be a time of celebration, rather than just a really dark night. Of course, there have been a few quirks here and there, so this week's poll question asks "Did you personally experience a Y2K-related computer problem?"
