The webplex.net web site (herein referred to as "WebPlex") is an online
community and information service sponsored by
Technologies (herein referred to as "the company" or "DataPlex").
The following constitutes a "Year 2000 Readiness Disclosure" under the Year 2000
Information and Readiness Disclosure Act of 1998, a U.S. statute enacted on October 19,
1998. This designation also applies to information delivered by
DataPlex Technologies past and present via written or verbal
communications and through its website at http://www.webplex.net/y2k.htm.
The Year 2000 issue is the result of computer programs, microprocessors,
and embedded date reliant systems using two digit representations for the applicable year
rather than four digits. Such programs are vulnerable to potential system failure,
or could possibly generate erroneous results when applying date calculations or
comparisons on or after January 1, 2000.
understands the business impact of the Year 2000 issues and has developed a
remediation process (herein referred to as "the process") for computer programs
written in the Clipper programming language(s). Dataplex defines "Year 2000
Ready" as sthe ability of a software program to accurately process date data from,
into, and beyond the years 1999 and 2001, including leap year calculations. Programs

Note that the year 2035 is a limitation of the workstation and network operating
systems and is NOT a limitation of any specific DataPlex application.
- Correctly calculate the day of the week for all dates from 1980 to 2035.
- Calculate the difference between 01/01/1980 and 01/01/2035 as 20,089
