This video you can fast forward to 10:00 of the way through and it details the scope of the problem of fixing the Y2K issue and the many many many billions that had to be spent fixing it.

I can think of many systems which can't be fixed without manual engineering because they don't have the right plugs. Many vehicles, older satellites, video game systems/phones.

Look at how much s*** Y2K caused. the billions upon billions that needed to be spent. It is not correct to say "nothing happened" there were errors in nuclear reactors in Japan for example which did not become serious, but potentially could have. There were all kinds of bugs. There's countless scattered examples of electronic vending machines acting erroneously, hospital equipment giving false data, even a deep space satellite losing contact with Earth with one of these errors. It's not like there's a complete list because after all no one took the time to calculate and log each one but there were many

Imagine if there was an emergency trigger in response to the radiation readings at those plants in Japan. The reason why a lot of major things like hydroelectric dams didn't glitch is because of the massive effort governments put in to fixing them. They needed to get involved and spend very many billions fixing Y2K.

It's just a strange correspondence I noticed. 2038 isn't some apocalyptic prophecy it's just the year of transformation John van Auken indicates and many many millions of devices are going to be disrupted simultaneously.

I spoke with a technology engineer and imagine the effort which is going to have to go in to reprogramming industrial control systems with this error in mind.
