Y2care38

Alright, so Y2K turned out to be a damp squib. But Y2K38 might not! But why wonder 30 years before. Who knows the entire world might be nuked by them and only Noah's Arc might be around.
The reason is that Saturday, January 19th marks the beginning of the 30 year countdown to the Y2K38 bug.

Will it turn out to be another ho-hum affair, that remains to be seen. Will I or you be there to judge it, that remains to be seen too :)
