re: The Y2K era! It would be fun to see devs expecting a worldwide crash on systems and laugh about it when nothing happened. lol

Y2K was fun: I got $1000 just to be on available in case something blew up (and would have gotten double-time had they actually had to call me). Nothing blew up and I got to pocket the $1000 for doing nothing other than staying sober.


The saying then should be "I'm not partying like it's 1999".

I actually worked that night out our California datacenter. Had arrived a few days early as part of a trip to use the first weeks of January to train staff on (OS-level) clustering technology. Knowing the $1000 was "in the mail" made it a fun trip.
