Give Me A Break

The Microsoft music player has a “Z2K” problem. The Zunes began freezing up by the thousands and nothing seemed to work.

Well, the wizards at Microsoft finally figured it out: some sneaky so-and-so added an extra day to this year, and that confused the internal clock. Think about that. The people who wrote the operating system in use by millions of people sold a device that is obviously dependent on its clock, but they made no provisions for A LEAP YEAR.

Apparently people have to let the battery die, and then, since it is already 2009 UTC time, they can recharge it, and resynchronize it with their computer, to get it to work.

Hey, it’s only one day every four years. What do you want for hard earned dollars? [/snark]
