Subject: New Year's Eve 1999

What were you doing on this fantastic day before the "Happy new Millennium" became the norm?

I was getting pumped up for the year 2000. :)

According to older Millennials(25-35) I've talked to, it was the last time they ever felt hopeful for the world.

My brother, who was then sixteen, drove me and my mother downtown. Everyone beeped their cars!!

There was confetti in some places, probably from people. I remember seeing an African American woman having confetti in her car, probably pulled those lever thingies that releases confetti for small places. There were people beeping everywhere for a few minutes.

My father, being an eccentric and trolling, made a huge basket of water. And he also prepared some canned food too. I was 11, that's why I can remember some detail of that day.

I was terrified the apocalypse was about to happen! :-[

I know it seems kind of silly looking back on it now, but I fully believed in all the Y2K stuff. All day long on December 31, 1999, I expected that at the stroke of midnight planes would drop out of the sky, computers would stop working and power grids would fail. I remember watching the ball drop with my family with very sweaty palms, waiting for the worst.

Then, of course, nothing happened.

Honestly, I felt of combination of embarrassment and relief when I went to bed that night. I was embarrassed that I'd brought into all the doomsday stuff, but at the same time relieved that I had been wrong! You've got to cut me some slack, though. I was just 12. :P

I went out with my sister and her boyfriend and we went to a restaurant in the evening. At night we went downtown, to the open air 16th Street Mall in Denver, looking for the crowds but there were none. Instead there were rows of police lined up on each side of the mall (a couple miles long) in riot gear standing like twenty feet apart. The place was deserted aside from cops. Normally the 16th Street Mall is the hub of Denver activity, but the mayor had decided the risk was too great and that the "real millennium" (2001) would be celebrated officially instead in Denver. It was lame.

So we went back up to Arvada (a suburb) and were walking along the railroad tracks in old town when some fireworks went off in the distance. I looked at my watch and it had just hit midnight. The new millennium began.

All of you guys that are old enough to remember New Year's Eve 1999 will probably remember this. ABC did a special event called "ABC 2000" that showed New Year's celebrations in every major city on the planet leading up to the ball drop in Times Square. It lasted for 25 hours, from about 3 A.M. on December 31, 1999 to about 4 A.M. on January 1, 2000. It's amazing how hyped the Y2K thing was.

Well that's weird. Celebrating the millennium was a huge thing at the time. The number in the front was changing after a 1000 years.

My husband was the head of an IT department at a small company, and he felt pressed into service on NYE 1999.  It was looking like an all-nighter for him.  (He and his team had been working feverishly for months to take care of the company's computer programs before D-Day.)  Thus I was alone on that evening.  I do however recall seeing fireworks in Australia on the TV that day - and feeling a sense of relief.  I called him after midnight - the world didn't melt down then, and neither did his company's computers.

There were some little glitches afterward, to be sure.  Just nothing catastrophic, as far as I know.  Here's an example of a funny little glitch (look at the date):

The 1999 to 2000 sex was great. I was 18, just shy of being 19. Girl was same age and we were both very fit. We got a room and had the whole night together.

The 2000 to 2001 sex was just so-so. We were at a party and were too messed up to really enjoy it.

So your sex mirrors the observation that 1999 was more exciting than 2000 (in this case, that 1999 into 2000 was better than 2000 into 2001)? The sex that started in 2000 was kind of a downer?

Oh man. My younger brother literally pulled a once-in-a-millenium prank on me on December 31st, 1999.

I was living in a small duplex with my older brother Rob at the time, and my younger brother Chad was back home from college visiting for the holidays.  Rob mentioned something about meeting up with him at a party and Chad and I walked around looking for it but we forgot the address and since it was coming up on midnight, we went back to my duplex to ring the new year in.

As has been mentioned, there was this huge concern about the so-called Y2K bug and how all the computers were potentially going to shut down and all the commercial airliners were going to drop out of the sky and it was going to be the end of civilization as we know it. 

So Chad and I are back in the living room of my duplex, it's 11:59 and Dick Clark is counting it down. 5...4...3...2...1.

And then all the lights and the TV in my duplex suddenly go dark. Holy sh!t...Y2K. It's really happening!

Then, about 10 seconds later the lights and the TV come back on and Chad is standing next to the light switch that controls all the outlets in the living room, and he has this huge sh!t-eating grin.

I immediately threw a pillow at him, called him an asshole, and then burst into laughter.  ;D

It was a once-in-a-lifetime thing. And, at the time, we truly didn't know what would happen. Turns out, if I remember correctly, some cell phones stopped working, some computers got the date wrong for billing systems, and some ATMs spat out money somewhere over in Japan.

I remember seeing people at the local stores stocking up on food and water, afraid that it was going to be utter chaos. I even had a friend, who's neighbors bought a motor home, and went off to some remote place, just in case the cities got bombed by the nuclear computers bugging out.

Like Slim 95 was saying, 1990s culture (i.e. Married with Children, Murphy Brown, and Seinfeld) was gone by the time 1999 rolled around. So, 1999 was the first year of the 2000s.
