Happy Old Year

intro

The Register was thrilled to see that this morning’s post brought with it 1999’s first issue of PC Dealer, the weekly channel newspaper. But as soon as we had wrestled off the cellophane wrapper we began to feel slightly uneasy. "6 January 1998" it said on the front page. Hmm, funny old thing deja vu. So, we’ve got to go through 1998 all over again, have we. Good news for all you stressed out IT managers struggling to beat the alleged millennium bug. We at The Register predict that Compaq will buy Digital in about three weeks’ time. Watch this space - not. ®
