The "Millennium Bug" article covered three-and-a-bit pages (four pages if you count the large intro image that takes up tw-thirds of a page), but was mainly a load of pointless waffle ... much like the "Y2K Bug" itself really.

It started off explaining what the (supposed) problem was in general, then moved on to Macs in particular - basically any Mac running the then-current System 7 or Mac OS 8 was fine, and older ones had a different problem of when their date range ticked over. It then quickly goes through what happens in a few applications when you enter years as two digits (ClarisWorks 4.0 and 5.0, Microsoft Excel 98, FileMaker Pro, Claris Organiser 2.0 Claris Emailer, Netscape Communicator) - what dates they assume you mean. After that it briefly moves on to other systems (Windows 3.x, Windows 95, Windows NT 4.0, Mac OS Rhapsody and X then-unreleased, and the Newton).

For me the bug meant I had to remain at work until midnight on new year's eve if all went well. And much later if it didn't.

I was working a 6 AM to 3 PM shift at the time.
