Re: [NTLK] Our newts die in 2010?

I vaguely recall reading somewhere it is to do with a counter that keeps the
date. Once it goes over 2010 the register[?] needs an additional digit but
there isn't one.

I'm also sure that I have read Newtontalk items that attest to the bug and that
it does cause a crash. Only a brainwipe allowed the machine to come back to
operational life?

Thanks for the links, everyone.
Can anyone point to a good source as to WHY this fix is needed? What's up
with 2010, and why will our Newts crash? Is there a site that explains it?
