Y2K virus fighter bitten by Y2K bug (again)

Rob Rosenberger, Vmyths co-founder
Sunday, 2 January 2000 NETWORK ASSOCIATES GOT bitten (again!) by the Y2K bug. "This page current as of Saturday, January 1st, 3900." (Snapshot courtesy of subjects.net.) It seems pretty obvious what happened: the website adds 1900 to a two-digit year variable. This time it added 1900 to the year 2000. Network Associates has a history of Y2K problems. Check out this and this for a good chuckle.
