Y2K, Year 200

Low-Cost Y2K Alternatives

Corporate computer services has defined a lower cost alternative to Windows conversions to address the many glitches, freezeups and downtime while also addressing the Y2K (Year 2000) issue at no additional cost.

All staff that now use the corporate Windows-based system will be provided with an Etch-A-Sketch. There are many sound reasons for doing this:

1. No Y2K problems.

2. No technical glitches keeping work from being done.

3. No more wasted time reading and writing emails.

4. Increased productivity.

5. Elimination of corporate overhead for purchasing non-working systems.

For your information here are some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) from the Etch-A-Sketch Help Desk (formerly the Windows help desk). These are the same instructions we have used for the past several years for Windows applications.
