The Bug Bites
 

Well the world may not have come to an end last night but Shades did suffer from a nip from the Millennium Bug.

First spotted by Savvanah when she logged on just after midnight and did a WO and got the following strange results..

Doing a TIME brought up the fact that we had indeed slipped into a time warp..

>time
54::7:72 , 1 January 1988
>date
54::7:72 , 1 January 1988

After kicking her away from the pooter I went on to meet Ambushbug, Hector and a few others. After much merriment we then spent the next hour investigating this strange event.

Writing a message on the chattrack also caused a giggle or three..

From: Zeon
Subject: Test
Dated: Sat Jan 01 54::7:72
Oh dear

Another effect of this strange happening was that everyone kept freezing every 15 minutes or so, so much of this hour was spent by me and Ambushbug booting all the frozen people, as well as each other!

Anyway at about 1.30am we all gave up and decided to go to bed.

At 3:15 am I was getting bored with TV, drinking and eating so I popped back on to see if anything else had happened. I met Aeia on there and discovered that another chunk of Shades had started to fall over. Doing a READ 40 produced this rather interesting result..

*>read 40
The board is headed "The Mortals"

All appears to be fine now. It appears that Windows NT does not
handle Y2k and Shades does...:) Chant very kindly reset NT and all
now seems to be okay,
Oh, and...Happy New Year!

*>Aeia says "well at least Shades has beat some of the US into the Millenium"
*>Hazeii says "here, rather, not year."
*>laugh
You Laugh
*>Aeia chuckles merrily.
*>Aeia says "I've had one crash, was weird just as Chant must have reset the box"
*>Aeia says "my 95 froze!"
*>chuckle
You Chuckle
*>ae you get the y2k patch form msoft web site?
*>Hazeii says "I've reset my NT box to see if my editors going to start working again"
*>Hazeii sighs....
*>Aeia tells you "nope.. havent relaly bothere much but guess I should check"
*>ae nod win95 is not y2k complience, patch is only small
*>ae and installs itself
*>Hazeii says "Its now saying "incorrect password"...which is a problem, as I don't use"
*>Hazeii says "passwords..."
*>chuckle
You Chuckle
*>Aeia grins infectiously.
*>Hazeii tries to remember how you get around this...
 

So I left Hazei to sort out his problems with a smile on my face thinking that whilst Shades could handle the new millennium, Mr Gate's M$Soft efforts couldn't...

Happy New Year
