| the worst thing about the y2k38 thing is that retirement age is 65,
| and I will be only 64 in 2038, so I'm pretty sure I'll have to fix
| something anyway...
well, if the politcos and other people who don't have
retirement income worries get their way, the age will
be, by then, about 300 or so .... ½ ;-)
not to mention that mandatory retirement age is a bit
ageist, but let's not go there ...... OTOH, for Y2K,
the old-time COBOLers were dragged out of retirement
at very lucrative rates (multiple thousands of dollars
a week), or so rumo(u)r has it ......
