Hello everybody,

Just a quickie from the Langa List.....


More on "Y2K BS"

Last issue's article on Y2K BS (see
http://www.langa.com/newsletters/Jul-06-99.htm#y2k ) also
generated some excellent reader mail, but this was a lot
more serious than the for-fun PT Barnum information.

    There are *free* Downloadable Y2K O/S
     drivers available. Below are three that I've
     found. So, for those folks that have a non-Y2K
     complaint system, perhaps one of these free
     drivers will keep them going without having to
     spend their $$$ for a "commercial"

Thanks, Jeff!

I think it's about time to be really careful if you're thinking of buying a used 'puter.  While some people say Y2K isn't a problem, it could still be a major pain in the ***.
