: Is this year "100" a y2k thing? These dates are showing up funny.

It's a Y2K classic all right. Most CGI scripts got this bug. They used to create the year part of the current date
from two parts : 19 (the century) and a two digit number retrieved from the computer.
It was working all right up to 99, but now the last two digits turned into 100, and the year into 19100.
I use several different CGI scripts at the MIDIWORLD web site, this Forum is one of them, and I'm almost done
fixing them all. This message is actually the test...
