[2:30 PM] California Quake Delays Release Of Y2K App Checker

Blueline Studios has announced that the recent quake in California has caused an unavoidable delay in the public beta release of Y@K App Checker. The project will hopefully be back on track shortly. According to Blueline Studio:

The beta release of "Y2K App Checker", the free utility to check Macintosh applications for year 2000 compliance is delayed due to some problems caused by the recent 7.0 magnitude Southern California earthquake.

The software implements the database from, the currently most complete resource available regarding applications with y2K issues. Y2K App Checker scans the user's hard disk for applications and when finds any corresponding entries in the database, it will describe the problem, the solution, and the companies' URL, along with other useful information.

The final version will be released one week after the Beta. System requirements are any Macintosh, iMac, or Mac clone, 4 MB of available RAM, and system 7 or above.

You can find more information on Y2K App Checker at the company's web site.
