>I can only answer one of your questions, but I can state emphatically that >any Macintosh computer is not affected by the year 2000 issue. Not entirely true. Any software that dosn't use the toolbox date and time routines could have trouble. There isn't much reason _not_ to use the system routines, but you never can tell with programmers. I've seen a few ports from other systems that ugly enough that they might have used roll-your-own date math. A bug in Claris e-mailer (now unsupported) makes it display munged dates in 1999, but it's not a y2k problem, and the headers are correct. Just the same we Macheads, in aggregate, will have fewer problems than the FAA and we'll spend less money than your average branch bank fixing them Christopher Wright P.E. |"They couldn't hit an elephant from chrisw(--nospam--at)skypoint.com | this distance" (last words of Gen. ___________________________| John Sedgwick, Spotsylvania 1864) http://www.skypoint.com/~chrisw
