As we rapidly approach the start of a new year, I thought this item from the past would provide a smile.
December 28, 1998: President Clinton announced that SSA’s computer systems were now fully Y2K compliant.
This made the Social Security Administration the first major federal agency to complete work on the Year 2000 computer problem. About 700 programmers worked on the project, starting in 1989. The year 2000 project’s estimated cost was $42 million.
Thank you for your continued interest in these posts.
Happy New Year
