Y2K: An Autobiography

June 11, 2020

Covid-19 resulted in Lockdowns,

which resulted in Unemployment levels that exceeded all past expectations,

which resulted in Unemployment systems - usually in the legacy category - bursting at the seams

which resulted in call outs to COBOL programmers

This episode takes a look at one area where Y2K remediation failed miserably.
