Y2k Bug

The Year 2000 problem (also known as the Y2K problem, the Millennium bug, the Y2K bug, or simply Y2K) was a problem for both digital (computer-related) and non-digital documentation and data storage situations which resulted from the practice of abbreviating a four-digit year to two digits.In 1997, The British Standards Institute (BSI) developed a standard, DISC PD2000-1, which defines "Year 2000 Conformity requirements" as four rules: No valid date will cause any interruption in operations. Calculation of durations between, or the sequence of, pairs of dates will be correct whether any dates are in different centuries.
