Can you give me a complete list of embedded systems that might pose a problem for Y2K? -Thanks

I think that's probably impossible, Jeanny. At least in any meaningful way. We've identified about 1500 separate and unique system types in our medium sized operation. There are so may variables, so many function-specific systems that to cover them all is impractical. Our approach has been to physically inventory every site, do a risk assessment and then to test, test, test.
