The bug didn’t bite much

21 January 2000

The European Atomic Forum said that the Millennium Bug ended up posing no threat to Europe’s nuclear power stations, with the date rollover passing without incident.

There were only a few insignificant anomolies. A total of 16 computer-related glitches occurred at nuclear plants world-wide at the time of the date change. Five reported problems were from Japan, two from Spain, two from the UK, and seven from the USA. Most problems involved monitoring systems and data transfers, and the faults were quickly rectified.
