Subject: the year 2000


If your VCR has a year setting on it, which most do, 
you will not be able to use the programmed recording 
feature after 12/31/99. Don't throw it away. 
Instead set it for the year 1972 as the days are the 
same as the year 2000.

>buy a new Y2k VCR. Pass this along to all your friends.
