possibly.
if so it was to make the ones who prepared look like fools, so when in the near future when any type of "preparation" may be necessary people would be too afraid of ridicule to take head to the warnings.
people really gotta shake their egos.

The Y2K problem never existed.

That was propaganda at it highest order.

When the machines were told:

If a=9999999 then stop

IT WAS WROTE IN BASIC, further,

IT IS NOT THE 1999 NUMBER!

Machines at that time ran on machine code and language NOT BASIC.

The US was in a financial downturn and the politicians thought it would be so cute to terrorize everyone into spending money on their machines first, and second to make them run around like chickens with their heads cut of looking for survival items.

It was the most ludicrous thing I have ever witnessed in my entire life, but it did allow me to see the type of control that TPTB have over the sheeple.

Excellent exercise in proving how easy it is to manipulate most Americans.

In 1999 I was stocking up like crazy for Y2k. I knew I
should trust God for my provisions so I went to Him in
prayer and asked if it was the proper thing to do. I got a resounding YES. With children, I liked to have lots of food
in the house anyway. Well, come Jan. 9th, my husband left me suddenly to fend for myself and four children. That stock helped me out tremedously until I could get back on my feet. Follow your heart and your instincts ( and God) and you'll be just fine.

PS. It hurt when my husband left but it turns out that
was also in my and the childrens best interest. He went on
a downward spiral after that. Current hubby much better!

It was a real problem, regardless of the language used or who created it.

But you've got a point, some people will seize on any excuse to be lazy.

Y@k was simply a means for the government to bring the local, state and federal authorities up to date with the latest computer systems and equipment. Billions were spent upgrading their systems to meet the "crisis". Just another tool to further their agenda. Total police state.

People were paying big money for software to fix their computers to survive the y2k problem.

I reset my computer's clock past 2000 and ran programs.
Everything worked OK

No need to fix a problem that did not exist.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 449374

NORAD kept one radar system running without the fix. At midnight on Dec 31, 1999, the computers locked up tight, couldn't cope. Without the fix the US would have been blind.

I have software that only works if you set the computer date to 19xx. I could live without it, but like the convenience.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 300370

Well at least I'm not the only one on here with some common sense, you are 100% right, Y2K was nothing more than a massive cash grab, it was THE reason for the tech boom we saw early this century.

I don't know when it was decided, but at some point between 1990 and 1998 it was decided to create this fictional problem so that the computer industry could thrive as EVERYBODY bought new machines. And you had to be a complete buffoon to think that the date on a pc would cause problems, as ANYONE could set the clock ahead on their machine and see that it was fine. Fortunately for the PC industry, most everybody is a complete moron and all fell for it, hook line and sinker.

BTW I still have a pc from 1996 that was NEVER Y2K upgraded, and it is just fine and dandy. Works like a charm.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 449361


No it was a very real problem, but it was mostly addressed in 1998-1999. To be honest those of us that were addressing it were victims of our own sucess as most people now think it was "no big deal", but it could have been really fucking bad if we had done nothing.

But even in 1998 when I was helping a large bank get ready it seemed to me that some people were going overboard insane with the whole thing....

For the record I helped the bank do transactions until 10,000 and I didn't stock up on anything.. You have to understand that we poured hundreds of millions into fixing this thing..

Now of course the 2038 issue is going to probably be the same thing. It's a very real problem, but there is a simple fix of taking the signed integer for time (a common mistake of using signed numbers where unsgined is what you want), and by adding the additional bit, it'll double Unix's runtime....

But who knows what things will be like from here until there.

I think it was "engineered" as a "practice run" by the Globalists to find out if stupid ass American people would take "heed" to the warnings....

I think you misunderstood. NORAD fixed all their systems, except one network they allowed to run without the fix. They kept it simulating to see what would happen. It happened pretty much as predicted.

The govt probably spent more fixing or replacing computers and embedded systems than the private sector, certainly more than individuals.

I know nothing about the rest of your statement.
