The problem is entirely the responsibility of the computer industry; they have been aware of this for many years, and they should deal with it. If my tiny desktop computer, on which I am typing this letter, and which will be approaching 10 years old come the millennium, already has four digits in the date, then any machine of greater complexity should have been built and programmed correctly. If any company has a computer, certainly one dating from later than 1990, which cannot work with the date 2000 then I suggest they sue the provider of their computer system for selling or leasing them a faulty machine.
