Hi folks, got this info back from the Boeing Y2K people. Thought it may be
of interest.

> Windows Y2K e-mail is a hoax.
> The date display setting has no effect on the computer's Year 2000
> readiness and should not be changed. Changing it could cause format
> problems in documents such those created with Microsoft Excel.
> The date that determines Year 2000 readiness is the one maintained in the
> computer's basic input-output system (BIOS) chip. Computer support
> organizations already have tested BIOS chips on company computers and
> made them Y2K ready where necessary.
