Y2K

As the year 2000 approaches companies around the world are scrambling to verify the compliance of the software they use in daily operations. Only certain types of software are susceptible to the Y2K bug and GHS is not one of them

GHS performs high level calculations that do not rely on dates and there will not be any adverse reactions when the new millennium arrives.

If you would like addtional information on the Y2K bug visit the Invisible Software web site.

Below we have provided a sample of the output that we produced after changing the date on our computer to 00/01/01.

00-01-01 10:12:59 CREATIVE SYSTEMS, INC. Page 1
GHS 6.70D 101.5M CHEMICAL TANKER 2000

This is a test of GHS running with the date 1/1/2000

1. Note the date in the upper-left corner of the page.

2. Since GHS only displays the last two digits of the year, it shows "00".
This is correct and normal.

3. GHS does not perform calculations where the date is a factor and therefore it is not affected by the form in which the date is
expressed.

>>> No problems with the date in GHS are anticipated in the next millennium.
