Our staff has completed the 3 years of work on time and under budget. We have gone through every line of code in every program in every system. We
have analyzed all databases, all data files, including backups and historic archives, and modified all data to reflect the change. We are proud to
report that we have completed the “Y-to-K” date change mission, and have now implemented all changes to all programs and all data to reflect the
following new standards:
Januark, Februark, March, April, Mak, June, Julk, August, September, October, November, December
Sundak, Mondak, Tuesdak, Wednesdak Thursdak, Fridak, Saturdak
I trust that this is satisfactory, because to be honest, none of this Y-to-K problem has made any sense to me. But I understand it is a global
problem, and our team is glad to help in any way possible. And what does the year 2000 have to do with it? Speaking of which, what do you think we
ought to do next year when the two digit year rolls over from 99 to 00? We’ll await your direction.
