This is my shocked face

Trump orders government to stop work on Y2K bug, 17 years later.

Now, that little blurb is included in a whole slew of reforms that are going on right now with the Office of Management and Budget.  But how the fucking fuck were we still working on crap for Y2K in 2017?

Oh, right - because as long as someone is getting a paycheck from the government to do it, they'll find endless excuses to do it no matter what.

Folks, every now and then you have to stop and re-assess the systems you have in place.  Get rid of the junk.  See if any improvements can be made.  Naturally, the government sucks at this, because that means you're re-assessing someone's cash cow, and that tends to make the person milking that cash cow grumpy.  But that's even more reason to do it.  I don't care if the person at the Office of Buggy Whips and Carriage Harnesses is grumpy over their cash cow getting slaughtered.  It needs to be slaughtered.
