Remembering Y2K call-outs and the joy of the hourly contractor rate

Doctor Syntax Silver badge

I was perfectly happy having nobody to charge call-out rates to (I did spend the next few weeks wrangling things for a client whose beancounters insisted on on using their old, definitely non-Y2K compliant box because they wouldn't risk(!!!) a cut-over to the fully tested new one until they'd completed their year end).

In consequence we saw in the new year, as ever, at my cousin's house, with a view for miles - including what must have about a hundred simultaneous firework displays, near and far. I still can't understand why my daughter and her future husband just stayed indoors in a pub down in the village.
