Something To Look Forward To:

January 4, 2000

Dear Valued Employee:

Re: Vacation Pay

Our records indicate that you have not used any vacation time over the past 100 year(s). As I'm sure you are aware, employees are granted 3 weeks of paid leave per year or pay in lieu of time off. One additional week is granted for every 5 years of service. Please either take 9,400 days off work or notify our office and your next pay check will reflect payment of $8,277,432.22 which will include all pay and interest for the past 1,200 months.

Have a nice day,

Payroll Processing


Y2K Change - Project Status Report
(Y2K Certificate of Compliance for our software)

Our staff have completed the 18 months of work on time and on budget. We have gone through every line of code in every program in every system. We have analysed all databases, all data files (including backups) and historic archives, and have modified all data to reflect the change.

We are therefore proud to report, and hereby certify, that we have completed the "Y2K date change" mission and have now implemented all changes to all programs and all data to reflect the new dates as follows:

Januark, Februark, March, April, Mak, June, Julk, August, September, October, November, December.

We have also modified: Sundak, Mondak, Tuesdak, Wednesdak, Thursdak, Fridak, Saturdak for those dates that include the day.

I trust this is satisfactory, because to be honest none of this "Y to K" problem has made any sense to anyone in the IT team. But I understand this is a global problem that has received a lot of press and our team is glad to help in any way possible.
