Millennium Year Application Software System
This memo is to announce the development of a new software system
which will be Year 2000 compliant. This program is known as
"Millennia Year Application Software System" (MYASS).
Next Monday there will be a meeting in which I will show MYASS to
everyone. We will hold demonstrations throughout the month so that
all employees will have an opportunity to get a good look at MYASS.
We have not addressed networking aspects yet, so currently only one
person at a time can use MYASS. This restriction will be removed
after MYASS expands.
Some employees have begun using the program already. This morning I
walked into a subordinate's office and was not surprised to find
that she had her nose buried in MYASS. Some of the less technical
people may be somewhat afraid of MYASS. Last week my secretary said
to me, "I'm a little nervous, I never put anything in MYASS
before." I helped her through the first time and afterward she
admitted that it was relatively painless and she was actually
looking forward to doing it again, and was even ready to kiss MYASS.
There have been concerns over the virus that was found in MYASS upon
initial installation, but the virus has been eliminated and we were
able to save MYASS. In the future, however, protection will be
required prior to entering MYASS.
This database will encompass all information associated with the
business. As you begin using the program, feel free to put anything
you want in MYASS.
As MYASS grows larger, we envision a time when it will be
commonplace for a supervisor to hand work to an employee and say,
"here, stick this in MYASS." It will be a great day when
we need data quickly and our employees can respond, "Here it
is, I just pulled it out of MYASS."

Subject: Vacation Pay
Dear Valued Employee:
Our records indicate that you have not used
any vacation time over the past 100 year(s). As I'm sure

granted for every 5 years of service.
Please either take 9,400 days off work or
notify our office and your next pay check will reflect payment of
$8,277,432.22 which will include all pay and interest for the
past 1,200 months.
