Y2K+3

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2003 23:00:00 by Håvar Henriksen
Note: This is a retrospective post from my old homepage

Ok, maybe a couple of years to late… But this article describes the difference between the Millennium and the year 2000.
And folks… You cannot say that year 2003 is year Y2K3, because Y2K3 is year 2300. (K is Kilo wich means 1000 so 2K is 2000 and 2K3 is 2300 because 3 is after the decimal separator -> 2.3*1000=2300 (as you can see, the K symbol is used as the decimal separator)) So instead of saying Y2K3 you could just say Y2K+3 :-)
