Re: today's date may be computer program critical


A complete nonevent.  Everyone was on alert around the world. Industry 
Canada had conference bridges built and linked into a worldwide network of 
bridges. Not a hiccup anywhere in world was reported that I am aware of.  
Primarily it would have affected machines programmed in Cobol, of which 
there are apparantly very few up and running these days. Even the Russians 
were unscathed.
