 The Next Millennium Headache
 by Michael Stutz 

 Sometime in the future, the day and date settings deep inside millions of 
computers will roll over to a value that the machines don't understand. The 
likely upshot: system crashes in critical systems such as air traffic 
control and banking.

 But don't panic -- we still have almost 40 years to deal with it.
