Y2K / The Millennium Bug's Most Obvious Effects
[ send me this essay ]
An 8 page paper discussing the average person's perception of the effects of the Year 2000 computer date problem. Though the problem can be postponed for 50 years with relative ease for most applications, it still remains likely that there will be short-term problems for the individual associated with the turn of the century. Some appliances may not work or not work properly; computer-controlled building maintenance systems may require manual overrides in order to be heated or to have functional elevators; small banks may find data either corrupted or completely gone; grocery stores may temporarily revert to individual pricing and may need to resort to calculators, rather than cash registers, at the checkout. There is no doubt that it will be a nightmare for those businesses and government agencies unprepared for it, but the individual should be affected to a much lesser degree. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

Y2K / What Does It All Mean?
[ send me this essay ]
21 pages in length. It has been the center of concern and conversation for years; the buzz it has created is unprecedented. For an outsider to assess the situation, one would have no doubt that the world was truly going to come to an end at precisely midnight, January 1, 2000. What is all the furor surrounding this particular date? In a word: Y2K. All throughout the 1990's -- and even earlier than that -- the world's businesses and governments have been focused upon the very possible shutdown of all computerized systems when the new millennium arrives. It seems quite illogical that the mere changing of a year can instigate such a momentous situation; however, as the century is finally coming to a close, people are beginning to realize that there is more than just a little bit of truth to the impending crash. The writer discusses a wide range of topics in relation to the Y2K bug, with particular emphasis upon the banking industry. Bibliography lists 20 sources.
