Net.Humor Archive - Y0K

Dear Cassius,

Are you still working on the Y-zero-K problem?

The upcoming change from BC to AD is giving us a lot of headaches and
we haven't much time left.  I don't know how people will cope
with working the wrong way around.  Having been working happily
downwards forever, now we have to start thinking upwards. You would
think that someone would have thought of it earlier and not left
it to us to sort it all out at this last minute.

I spoke to Caesar the other evening. He was livid that Julius
hadn't done something about it when he was sorting out the calendar. He
said he could see why Brutus turned nasty.

We called in the consulting astrologers, but they simply said
that continuing downwards using minus BC won't work. As usual, the
consultants charged a fortune for doing nothing useful.

As for myself, I just can't see the sand in an hourglass flowing

We have heard that there are three wise men in the East who have been
working on the problem, but unfortunately they won't arrive
until it's all over.

Some say the world will cease to exist at the moment of transition.
Anyway, we are still continuing to work on this blasted Y zero K
problem and I will send you a parchment if anything further
