286/365 First sunset in the new year

Remember, just nine short years ago, the fear that came with crossing from the 20th to the 21st century?


It seems silly now, but it was so real then. I don't think we realized until 1999 how much we rely on technology. That's probably not surprising, since it's common knowledge that you don't appreciate things until you're faced with losing them.

What would have really happened if all the preparations in getting ready for Y2K hadn't been done? If people didn't go to the effort of making sure computers were ready for the change to '00?

Would everything have crashed and burned? Or would it have passed without a second thought?

Camera: Canon 40D, 1/125s, f/8 at ISO 250 at about 5:00 p.m.
