A song about the Y2K problem
Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale
Main memory was smaller then;
'This works through 1999,'
But Management had not a clue:
Now when 2000 rolls around
The mail won't bring your pension check
The problems we're about to face
[key change, big finish]
There's not much time,
eight thousand years from now I hope
For part of my life, I was intimately involved in the Y2K problem. I worked on several Y2K projects, did consulting about the Y2K problem and spoke around the country, and a bit overseas, about the Y2K problem. This particular item is from that era.
