Millennium bug. Computer artwork representing the "millennium bug" by a beetle on a microchip. The millennium bug theory is that computers may not understand the change of digits from "99" to "00" at the turn of the century, year 2000. This is due to the fact that computers only use the last two digits of each year on their internal calendars. There is some debate about the effect this will have. It has been said that the computers will "think" it is 1900, or even crash, and lose all information.
