Although we cannot guarantee that the power will not go out, or that the world will not end, we give you our confidence that GraphCalc will function properly in the next millenium.
Just in case you aren't aware, here's a quickie about Y2K issues. Back in the stone age of computing, programmers used only two digits to record dates, so 1973 was represented as 73. But, what would the representation for 2000 be? It's 00. Unfortunately, to many computers, this means 1900.
