Re: 16 bits and all that.



I had 9 computers at work with 3.1 or WFW 3.11 that worked just fine past
midnight.  ALL of them were supposed to fail the rollover because of the
BIOS (all supported manual rollover).  3 of these could not be shut down and
rolled over just fine.  4 of these booted up in 2000 and didn't need to be
rolled.  2 of these actually had to be manually rolled.

I did note that one of the 2 machines I manually rolled could NOT be done in
DOS.  Dos 6.0 to be exact.  6.0 is supposed to be able to handle 4 digit
dates, and did eventually report the date as 2000, but I could not enter
2000 in the DATE command...

The information I had on the machines was gathered with that NSTL program.
Even though they do include a disclaimer about the gathered info, it would
have been nice to see more accuracy.  I probably could have manually checked
all 60+ machines, but it would have taken a while. LOL

73,
