Nice information on Y2K. Really at the time of Y2K all felt very tense that systems will crash not only software but also other departments like banks also.

This sould be really executable to buy thesis samples referring to this post in the dissertation writing service peculiarly if students are lack of time.

Changing the Daylight Savings Times caused our IT staff just as much headache as Y2K.

I remember this all too well. Back in 1998, when this whole issue was starting to make the news, I was on the deacon board at my church. Of the 7 member board, 2 of us were in the IT world. At that time, I had been an IT consultant for 8 years, heavily involved in mainframe programming. The other member of the board was also a mainframe consultant, with about 15 years experience. The pastor of our church, who was also the head of the board, wanted to address the Y2K issue with as little panic as possible, yet with enough preparation "just in case". Knowing that the 2 of us were in the IT world, he pulled us aside and asked what our opinions were of the whole Y2K "crisis". Of course, my opinion was that there was absolutely nothing to worry about. Based on everything that I has seen so far, I did not forsee there being any issues beyond minor glitches, which are very common at any year-end time. However, the other guy had the exact opposite opinion, and he chose to go with the chicken little mentality. Unfortunately, the pastor decided to side with the chicken little side, and proceeded to form committees to prepare for the worst. He wanted to give the appearance that we as a church were proactively preparing for the worst, therefore there would be nothing to fear. Meanwhile, he went about having his home furnace converted to run off of propane, install a propane tank, install a generator, and also converted his house to run off the generator if need be. He also began stockpiling bottled water and canned goods. Yet, we were not to "fall into this trap" and not panic and trust God. I threw my hands up in the air, and just sat back in meeting after meeting as they discussed and planned for the worst. They quickly realized asking my opinion on various things was a waste of time, since my answer was always the same. "This is all over-kill. Things are going to be just fine!" Well, as an old friend of mine once said, "A man of integrity expects to be believed, and when he is not, he lets time prove him right." Needless to say, on 1/1/2000, we had a church full of people that had way too much bottled water, canned goods, and generators. And I still had all my money. LOL!
