Somebody Else's Turn to Suffer
Listen here you lot. Y2K was bad enough. We worked for months to fix it and got through with flying colours. For my part only one (non critical) field on a GUI misbehaved on the 1st January and that was because, according to the supplier, they changed the specification for the function. ("We'll be sending you the compiler upgrade")
So a few days later the know-it-alls were trumpeting that there never really was a problem.
Now with the progressive dumbing down of non-technical management I forecast that not enough resources for fixing and testing the 2038 bug will be made available. (After all Y2K wasn't a problem was it!) My condolences to those whose job requires them to somehow make bricks without straw.
So I suggest that those of us who may be around at the time should read all the pre-Y2K articles about surviving it. Have ready cash, canned food, extra petrol for the car etc. Thankfully I am retired but at 88 I don't really want to be patching anything - not even my alarm clock.
