Y2K was not the disaster because engineers like myself and may others heard Art and then started looking and found the problems in the systems that could cause what was being talked about.
I know we all prepared just in case and then spent many, many hours patching software and upgrading equipment then 'manned' critical areas just in case.
Yes, there were some failures but people were there to make the manual corrections to the systems so to the general public it seemed nothing happened. The people working int he background for the couple years before and when the clock turned over never seemed to make the news.
So thank you Art for sounding the alarm that got us awake or we may have been listening to you in the dark.
