Remember Year 2000?

/YEAR=

Instructs the Windows core time function to ignore the year that the computer's real-time clock reports and instead use the one indicated. Thus, the year used in the switch affects every piece of software on the system, including the Windows kernel. Example: /YEAR=2001. (This switch was created to assist in Y2K testing.)

LOL. It seems so funny when we think back now to the year 2K, and all the confusions and predictions we had about changing from 1999 to 2000. And imagine having to change boot.ini every year after 2000! Thank God none of those happened, not even the silliest prediction about Y2K. What predictions they had! I think the two most popular ones are: 1) The world's going to end (plus 'Jesus is coming back' among some Christians) 2) All computers and digital devices would suddenly stop working... Good ole days!
