Re: hosta-open DIGEST V1 #584

If anyone is short of time, it might pay to read the following
before "fixing" the Y2K problem

>Where it says, "Short Date Sample," look and see

>Unless you've previously changed it (and you

>Microsoft made the 2 digit setting the default

>date format selected is the date that Windows
>feeds all application software and will not roll
>over into the year 2000.  It will roll over to
>the year 00.
>Click on the button across from "Short Date Style"
>and select the option that shows "mm/dd/yyyy" or
>"m/d/yyyy."  Be sure your selection has four y's
>showing, not just "mm/dd/yy."  Click on "Apply."
>Then, click on "OK."
>It's easy enough to fix.  However, every
