    A useful Y2K calendar kludge that I found (and have since heard other
    people mention) is to use 1972 for 2000 and count from there. It makess
    the days of week come out right. It gives the 'rest of the century' before
    it needs further attention. And it's comfortably in the satellite era too! 
    
    Unfortunately it's not in the pc era. Although it appeared to work ok on
    mine when I was experimenting a few months ago, but then it turned out
    that mine handled 2000+ ok anyway so I didn't need it.
