Y2K Bug May be 2016 Bug?

From December 24, 2009,it seems some systems are suffering from a Y2K16 bug. When 2009 ticked over to 2010, some Australian EFTPOS machines skipped to the year 2016. Coincidentally, some Windows Mobile users are also having issues with their new year SMSes coming from 2016.

What function could cause this kind of error?

We paid so much attention to dates, we may have overlooked how our computers translate numbers!

It may be 10 years after the year 2000, but several cellular carriers are being plagued by a bug that reports the year 2010 as the year 2016.

The issue has surfaced on Microsoft Windows Mobile devices, and is reportedly affecting incoming text messages for thousands of users on multiple carriers–most notably Sprint and Verizon.

T-Mobile’s network seems unaffected.

The emergence of the bug has developers speculating as to whether or not it may be related to an erroneous translation from a computer numbering system known as “hexadecimal” or “base 16.”

The number system most of us use in known as “decimal” or “base 10″ which includes numbers 0-9. Hexadecimal adds “A-F.”

The number “10″ in hexadecimal equates to “16″ in decimal.

    Hi there. I just wished to advise you that some elements of your web site are difficult to comprehend for me, as I’m color blind. I suffer from protanopia, but there are other sorts of color blindness which will also get issues. I can understand the largest part of the webpage Okay, and those areas I have difficulties with I can comprehend by employing a adapted browser. All the same, it would be nice if you could keep in mind we color-blind surfers whilst undertaking your next web site design. Many Thanks.
