Your article "Millennium Bug: Blair goes to war" (9 February) repeats the misunderstanding that the crisis will only occur as the clocks strike midnight on 31 December 1999. Companies will find that the crisis is upon them as soon as they attempt to place a sales order, purchase order or other transaction into 2000 which, for a company with long lead times, will be well before the end of December 1999.
