|[8:30 AM] New Utility Checks For Apps With Y2K Problems
Blue Line Studios has released their Millennium utility, Y2K App Checker. For those not aware, the Year 2000 (Y2K) bug is a result of using two digits instead of four to denote the year. This may cause some applications to recognize January 1, 2000 as January 1, 1900. Any software reliant on date codes could obviously suffer from such an error. According to Blue Line Studios:
Blue Line Studios is providing Y2K App Checker free to the Macintosh community, but the product is not yet released. A specific date has not been announced, but The Mac Observer will be sure to bring it to you as soon as it is. You can find more information at the Blue Line Studios web site.
