sorry for not being clear with my example of the car. the answer to all the
above question is, no. Y2K won't cause any problems in cars.
I'll state it another way. If a company that produces X product is 99% Y2K
compliant and that 1% is the phone system, that company will be in trouble.
they might get the phones up and running in a day or so, but what if it lasts
a week? who knows?
I personally don't like the "snow storm" effect that so many are promoting. I
think Y2K will be a nuisance all next year in various aspects of our lives.
Hey, but who really knows??? In a month we'll sure know more than now.
