Y2K Bug Strikes Microsoft!

A search of Microsoft's training page using older, non-Y2K browsers, yields interesting results.

Imagine our concern when we did a recent search on Microsoft's Web site for a particular certification exam and discovered ourselves thrust back in time to a day in 1900. At least, that's what the ASP page told us. Perhaps the Netscape JavaScript routine pulling up the "Last Mod Date Script" wasn't checked during those last minute Y2K compliancy exercises! Note that the bug crops up if you're using Internet Explorer 4.0.
