The <off topic> thread


Recommended Posts

I'm just sayin'...if you're under the age of fifteen or over the age of fifty, you may not have an accurate view of the event. :-) I'm 24. I was 15 in 2000, very much embroiled in the entire situation.

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Not to stir up argument again, but I believe the issue was that a lot of programs used the last two digits of the year like most people do today. For example, today would be 3/31/09. So, when the year 2000 was upon us, many believed that because they would use the date 1/1/00, the computers would malfunction because it was the "year" 0. That is just what I have heard. But any who, let's change topics. :P

Ha! I like Youtube's theme for April Fool's this year. Every spotlight video has something about being upside down (and that's not the only topsy turvy thing too. Click on one :lol: )

On a more serious note, it looks like Conficker's effects are being felt internationally

Also, someone posted a

of the effects of Conficker on their computer. Interesting eh?
