History has a funny way of playing tricks on our memory, and the Y2K bug is a good example.The famous computer glitch was devilishly simple: experts worried that computers and programs using a two-digit date system would flip their lids in the year 2000 - when their systems read "00."You probably remember the almost-hysterical panic some people felt before New Year's Eve 1999.
