Happy decade of comicing, Nitrozac&Snaggy!

I just realised that it's been (a little over) 10 years since the first AY2K comics went up.

Magnificient Valour! And here's to another decade!

No pressure for more AY2K there. [Wink]

Happy ten year anniversary!

good grief! Thanks guys.

(which means we've been doing Geek Culture for even longer than 10 years!)

If anyone would have said I'd be doing what I'm doing now, 11 years ago, I would have doubted it. And if they had told me when I was 8 years old... I would have thought "hmmm, neat!" [Razz]

10 years from now, when we're all telepathically surfing the HyperWeb from our flying cars, I will look back and cherish the comic times we've spent here with our friends. Thanks for being here, it means the world to us. [Happytears] [Applause]

w00t!

Mag valour, N+S!!!

I only wish I'd found all this a little bit sooner - I discovered AY2K...after Y2K happened. [Razz] I remember many an afternoon spent killing time in my college days, catching up on the whole series - taking advantage of better bandwidth...and keeping track by editing notes in vim with the URL of the last seen comic.

Ahh...the good old days. Now these young whippersnappers all have RSS & Twitter.

Pah...youth of the day!

Congratulations N&S.

Of course, the real Y2K will be in 2048, so you have 39 years of productive comicing ahead of you.

Actually, by my reckoning, 2038 will be far worse, no? (At present -- if people really don't retool software in the next 30 years...tsk-tsk.)

I still have some time left, before I'll make my own decade cake, it looks like I bookmarked AY2K on Sat Sep 18 09:36:35 1999.

Scary how many details you leave in a well-maintained system...

I'm absolutely certain that I will still have some software I wrote in the 80's and 90's running in 2038. Fortunately the date handling parts are small, so it should be easy to fix.

____ Remember all of the fear that power plants would fail, biggest problem I heard of was DMVs and people getting tittles for horseless carrages. Now look at our worries, Death Squads, Obama Care, who did win that seat in congress. I just want to get my hands on B. Madeoff as he made off with my money. I did not invest with him but mine took a hit with his.

A lot of people, myself included, spent a lot of time in the leadup to Y2K making sure things like that wouldn't happen.

Y2K wasn't a 'false alarm' - it was an alarm that sounded in time to avoid disaster.
