Jack (who is called Jack) BS: Do YOU know what the Y2K bug is? (45) RE: BS: Do YOU know what the Y2K bug is? 03 Dec 99


There's a lot of code out there but a lot of the application code can be rewritten or patched.

I'm curious about the embedded systems on all the low level appliances out there that are using chips that have the MM-DD-YY format and whose software is burned onto onboard RAM chips. I'm thinking of medical devices and cash registers, and Gas Station pumps, etc, etc, etc.

That stuff can only be fixed by physically replacing the surface mounted components on printed circuit boards.
