AMAZING NEWS ABOUT THE YEAR 2000 (and beyond)!

Last update: 6/16/97



Waiting for the 21st Century to begin? It might not be here as soon as you think:

A century consists of 100 consecutive calendar years. The 1st century consisted of the years 1 through 100. The 20th century consists of the years 1901 through 2000 and will end Dec. 31, 2000. The 21st century will begin Jan 1, 2001.
-- from The World Almanac and Book of Facts, 1988.



Oh, and by the way, you might want to fix all of your computer programs.
