What is Year 2000 Problem (Y2K)

What event takes place while you are out partying on New Years Eve of  1999?  Where will you be? What will you do if the Year 2000 bug (Year 2000 Bomb, Y2k, Year 2000 Rollover , Millenium Bug...whatever you want to call it) takes effect? A moderate scenario? The worst case scenario?
The debate really is not whether substantial amount of the computers of the world will fail on or shortly after January 1st, 2000 if not corrected before 31st December 1999. The debate is about how many computers will be fixed properly in time and, if not, will the effect be equivalent to a gentle breeze or catastrophic hurricane.

Not too many years back, computer storage space was at a premium; thus computer programmers developed a convention that simplified year dates by storing them as a two digit number rather than four (99 instead of 1999 -- does 00 mean 1900 or 2000?).Back when they were making movies such as 2001, A Space Odyssey, the year 2000 seemed to be ages away.The general expectation was that this software and firmware would be replace long before then.However, the expectation has not been fulfilled.

Much of the software and firmware is still in place. In fact, the larger the corporation or organization (i.e. privet companies, banks etc.), the more likely that this stuff is still in place just because it is so large and hard to replace. When you keep building on an antiquated system, it gets harder and harder to justify spending millions of dollars to modernize the system.Year 2000 Compliancy (is still a fairly new concept). For some reason, many still see the spending of millions of dollars to fix this problem as a loss of profit (when indeed they may loose their entire business, etc. if it is not taken care of).

Well, apparently there are not enough programmers to do the job (especially since many of the programming languages are as antiquated as ancient English in computer terms). We will ask you again. What will you be on New Years Eve of 1999 when you know that there is a good chance that computers will start spewing out gurgled data?
