Hey, hey, don't go spouting off like one of those ignorant journalists!
I and a lot of other programmers wasted years debugging code ahead of
2000 to make darn sure the tempest stayed in the teacup. The code I
worked on sure as heck would have screwed over a bunch of Texans on
Medicaid, and I would have far preferred to be at my previous job
monitoring Space Shuttle data.

And in that Nick is correct, don't paint yourself into a corner.
