Sir: Sean Woods (Letters, 4 October) suggests that we should reset calendars to the year 1900 in order to defeat the computer industry's impending millennium doom. I propose an alternative: recycle the year 1999. The advantages of recycling are obvious; the millennium will not arrive until the computer industry is able to cure all its ills, the Government will be able to achieve all its year 2000 targets, the millennium dome will be completed in time and everyone will have sufficient opportunity to plan for the big event.
