Default Re: This \"Millennium doesn\'t start until 2001\" BS

I doubt your post is a serious one Thrak, but just in case here is an explaination.
Y2K = year 2000
Y = Year (obviously)
2K = 2000 in Compuspeak, K=roughly 1000 (1024 actually)
So in other words it's a media catch phrase!
Y2K should actually mean year 2048!
