In plain, non-technical English, this book will describe the problem, evaluate and diagnose the problem as it relates to your computer, and make recommendations for software on how to fix it.

Library Journal Review

A recent Gallup poll indicated 82 percent of small businesses are at risk from the millennium bug. The problem starts with the internal clock built into the Intel chip. Compound this with old software and there is a major problem in the making. Even some new software such as Quicken, NetWare, and Lotus have Y2K bugs, which need fixing before the clock resets to 00. The people at JD Consulting here cover not just hardware and software issues but also legal issues and how to hire a consultant. Geared to the nonexpert personal or small-business user, this book will circulate widely for the next 12 months. Before it leaves the building, it should be read by local librarians running computer systems. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
