This is not a Y2K problem in perl, but a case of not reading the relevant
part of the fine perl manual. Quoting perlfunc(1p) on localtime:
:Also, $year is the number of years since 1900, that is, $year is 123 in
:year 2023, and not simply the last two digits of the year.  If you assume
:it is, then you create non-Y2K-compliant programs--and you wouldn't want to
:do that, would you?

Tevens ben ik van mening dat Nederland overdekt dient te worden.
