Did You Party Like It Was 1234567890?
Celebrations abounded (seriously!), but now(!) there is the dread of the Epochalypse. Anyone remember the Y2K scare? While that mostly fizzled, there is a similar scenario scheduled for Tuesday, January 19, 2038.
The big problem is that while Y2K could be easily understood by Joe Schmo, this is something only computer scientists and geeks might see coming. Hopefully, there will be an early enough alert so that people take it seriously.
For now, let's party like it's 1234567890!
