The Millennium Bug
Y2K = Year 2000 Trust the computer industry and/or the media to shorten the phrase: "Year 2000" to the cryptic acronym: "Y2K". To quote another commentator:
"It was this kind of thinking that caused the problem in the first place".

Besides, the solution of using 4 digits for the date will only cause a similar problem 8000 years from now when the year 9999 rolls over to 10000 and requires 5 digits!
