Many experts, governments and
businesses feared that January 1st 2000 could cause serious issues
with the date stamp on computers. The belief was that because many
old computers relied off of the last two digits of a year such as 99
for 1999, when the year 2000 came 2000 would set the computers to 00
causing the computer to think it was 1900. Called the Year 2000 bug
many individuals feared for the worst however because of preparation
Year 2000 only caused a few glitches, however no catastrophes.
