*Turbo Not to Scale
- Feb 6, 2007
The amount of work that had to be done in such a short time was herculean, one failure would easily cascade to other systems and take huge swaths of systems offline. The only reason it did not was the fact it became apparent that it would be so devastating we'd about have to start over.Y2K was supposed to be earth shattering too.
Lots of IT people were watching the clock click down to midnight expecting the worst.
We still are victim to this 2 digit programing method, the latest was with browser versions being denoted by 2 digits, and chrome was at 99. version 100 could have been interpreted as 10, 00 or error, and pages would fail to load.
Oh and the people in the cities pushing this hard for electric think that people just shouldn't live in the country or rural areas where there is no mass transit. The government can farm...
About 100% of the time the government siezes the means of production it ends in mismanagement, low yields, and in the case of food famine /death.
