Can the organiser cope with the year 2000?
The LZ can, but the CM and XP models cannot.
 
There are some ways to fix this problem:
 
  • The easiest workaround is to set the clock to one of the years 1916, 1944, or 1972 which are leap years with the same weekdays as the year 2000.  
     
  • It is also possible to use the OPL instruction POKEB $20C5,100 to manually set the clock to the year 2000. Normally this address holds a value between 0 and 99 denoting the current year. When the year is then displayed it will look strange (either 19:0 or 1910) but the weekdays are correct. The year would have to be updated the same way every new year.  
     
  • The best thing to do is to install the Y2k-patch which is discussed at the Year 2000 page.
