The millennium dawned and planes didn’t fall from the sky, civilisation did not end and nuclear reactors continued to work.  Even President Clinton’s Chairman of the ‘Year 2000 Conversion’, John Koskinen stated (Schofield 2000):

“At this point we are not aware of anything that is broken as a result of Y2K.”

The Director of the ‘International Year 2000 Cooperation Centre’, Bruce McConnell added (Schofield 2000):

“From an infrastructure standpoint, we expect a continuation of the non-event.”
