We never learn... The app in London decided this 101yr old man was a 1yo because it only processed the last 2 digits of DOB.

This Is interesting thread. Since I missed it the first time around, I will add in my memory now.
We were living in Eretz Yisroel at the time and on Motzaei Shabbos we decided to go out to eat at one of our favorites restaurants, Apropo.
We arrived and it was dark. There was a small sign on the door, with a message scrawled אנחנו סגורים במוצאי שבת בשביל הבג (we are closed on Motzaei shabbat because of the "bug")
We ended up going to Center One and the place was packed.
That night I went into labor. I gave birth in Bikkur Cholim, and my roommate had a sign above her bed, "first baby of the millenium born at Bikkur Cholim".

Lol, I didn’t realize this was an old post - saw a post that I really identified with and wanted to like it but couldn’t - then checked the author and it was ME!!!

Since 2000 we needed to put all 4 digits in YOB instead of the usual two. Whatever was preprogrammed or computerized

Well, apparently the UK government didn't seem to learn that lesson...
