Well, it's the end of the year as I start to write this1, and on finishing, in the new year, in a new century, in a new millennium, I note that the world is still here2, and the lights are still on.3

1 Well. . . not really. Just past 6PM, on December 31st, 1999, a version of this web page was stored on the service provider's UNIX box using Apache. They set their clock to GMT; when files are uploaded, the date and time on the server version is 6 hours later.

2 See september_9_1999 for an earlier, and similar, conclusion.

3 To say, however, that nothing happened just past 6PM is misleading. The file, time stamped locally as 6:15P 12/31/99, stored on the server with a reported time stamp of 0:15A 1/1/1999. By the time this file was stored on the server, the server had self corrected the test version, which now reports year 2000.
