        Typical y2k bull.
        No identification of the equipment or manufacturer; This is because
most of
        these stories are false.

>resets from 31/12/99 to 4/1/1980;
        Solution: set the date in January. It takes more time and effort to
        for this than it does to fix it. Such a problem, having to set the
date on
        a computer once every few years. What will they ever do when the
        backup on the clock has to be replaced?
> - There will now be a date conflict between the
>NC data and the internal date.
        So what?
