Spent the first Monday after the New Year patching (not fixing, these
aren't 'fixed') Y2K related problems.

The worst; A non-client called me out of desperation because invoicing had
come to a complete halt.  The problem?  A year edit on the initial screen
prevented entry of a date in which the year was greater than the current
year plus 1.  Ugly ancient S/3x code.  The quick patch?  Change year field
from 2 long to 3.  Very simple, but their ability to invoice was _down_
because of it.  All I can do is wish them luck on their compliancy efforts.
 I don't have time to actually help them.  And I get the strong feeling
that they're going to need some help.
