Re: Y-to-K Date Change Project Status

We are pleased to report that our staff has completed the 18 months of “Y-to-K” work, on time and on 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 completely modified dates in all software and all data to reflect your new standards, as follows:
Months: Januark, Februark, Mak, Julk
Days: Sundak, Mondak, Tuesdak, Wednesdak, Thursdak, Fridak, Saturdak

Our team is glad to help in any way possible, although honestly, the urgency of this “Y-to-K” project has not made much sense to us, with the push to complete this before the year 2000. Speaking of which, what do you think we ought to do when the two-digit year rolls over from 99 to 00? That could cause some problems.

Regards,
Systems Group
