    It can't be stressed enough how important proper police training is.

    The most bizarre thing...LAWYERS vs DOCTORS in Pakistan...

    You can't make this stuff up...what's wrong with these people?
    The last thing that made me frown like this were the Chinese bulldozer wars, but at least those were 'entertaining'.

    Pfffff, those numbers are rookie numbers. :D
    1999 - a year ended, a decade ended, a century ended and a millennium ended as well. ;)

    the decade doesn't end till jan 1st 2021,

    the first year AD was 1, not 0.

    decade: a period of ten years...

    There is currently an ongoing argument whether the "new decade" will begin on January 1, 2020, or January 1, 2021. According to the Gregorian calendar, the 203rd decade will begin on January 1, 2021, as the first year was the year 1, not zero. However, in the commonly-used form of decades, they are immune from the no-year-zero argument because of their titles, and thus the 2020s will begin on January 1, 2020. The correct answer lies on which decade is being referred to.

    if I said I was born in the 70s would that mean that February of 1980 counts as the 70s also?

    thats irrelevant.

    We're talking about a 10 year period that never started at 0 so can't end at 9.

    '0' is the first year, '9' is the tenth year. I smell quantum physics here.

    Someone here uses Cisco hardware with self-signed certificates to secure some connections? Then I have baaaaad news for you:

    https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/docs/field-notices/704/fn70489.html

    TLDR: If you use those, upgrade your software before next year or all your devices will not work anymore next year.

    Why should everybody buy Cisco again? Top-notch quality and feature set and stuff? :D

    @Hilbert Hagedoorn : Do you use those probably? I just want to ensure I have something to browse in 2020. ;)

    Ha, fail indeed. Still, there should be way of resetting hardware to its initial state, which resets time. Or just set time before 2020.

    At worst case, removing battery like on motherboard to reset setting and revert time to initial state might still be an option :)

    Any self-signed certificate created will have the expiration date set to the end of this year. Hardcoded. Without software update the device is "broken", at least all secure connections or SSL related services. And Cisco's intended field of use isn't SOHO exactly, where this may be acceptable. ;)

    EDIT: Oh, and don't forget the prices. Cisco is expensive.
