Y2K still alive

Accepted submission by hendrikboom at 2020-01-09 01:50:41 from the Zombies from another century dept.

Thought the Y2K bug was over and done with? Read the New Scientist [] and think again!

Parking meters, cash registers and a professional wrestling video game have fallen foul of a computer glitch related to the Y2K bug.

The Y2020 bug, which has taken many payment and computer systems offline, is a long-lingering side effect of attempts to fix the Y2K, or millennium bug.

I seem to remember that credit card companies instead kicked the can on to 2050.
