It seemed only like yesterday when I was making the Happy Y2.009K post. 2009 seems to have passed in just a blink of the eye. I've been so insanely busy, and this is probably obvious from the number of posts going down from 70+ in just the second half of 2008 to 70+ in all of 2009. It might seem that because I only started this blog in the second half of 2008 so I might have more to say back then when it was all new and exciting, but in fact, I have hundreds of saved drafts that need polishing before being posted.
A few days ago, we were talking about the old programmer that used to work here, and I suddenly remembered that one of the things she worked on when she was here was resolving Y2K issues in our programs, and that her husband (who was a programmer at a large financial institution) had to stay overnight at work on New Year's Eve to keep an eye on the computers. How time flies!
