Y Zero K Problem
January 1, 1 BC
Are you sill working on the Y zero K problem? This change from BC to AD is giving us a
lot of headaches and we haven't much time left. I don't know how people will cope with
working the wrong way around. Having been working happily downwards forever, now we
have to start thinking upwards. You would think that someone would have thought of it
earlier and not left it to us to fix everything at the last minute. I spoke to Caesar
the other evening. He was livid that Julius hadn't done something about it when he
was sorting out the calendar. He said he could see why Brutus turned nasty. We called
in Consultus, but he simply said that countinuing downward using minus BC won't work
and as usual charged us mightly for doing nothing useful. Surely, we will not have to
throw out all our hardware, that is hourglasses and sundials, and start again.
Macrohard will make yet another fourtune out of this I suppose. The money lenders are
paranoid of course! They have been told that all usury rates will invert and they will
have to pay their clients to take out loans. It's an ill wind....
We are hearing stories of the citizens hoarding food stuffs and preparing to decamp to the hills.
And that all the sundials will crash to the ground unless they are recalibrated before midnight
at the end of this year, 1 BC.
As for myself, I just can't see the sand in an hourglass flowing upwards. We have heard
that there are three wise men in the East who have been working on the problem, but
unfortunately they won't arrive until it's all over. Plans are
being made to stable all horses at midnight at the turn of the year as there are fears that they
will stop and try to run backwards, causing immense damage to chariots and possible
loss of life. Some say the world will cease to exist at the moment of transition.
Anyway, we are still continuing to work on this blasted Y zero K problem. I will send a
parchment to you if anything further develops.
