    Happy New Year

    4 Hours to go here. Just cracked open the first beer of the last day of the decade.

    If you happen to turn on the TV at 1pm today youll catch the amazing Sydney fireworks display.. Thats where Ill be down by the harbour with about 2 million other folk.

    Have a good one and all the best for 2010!!

    surely when the millenium hit it was 1999 into 2000?

    Those holding that the arrival of new millennium should be celebrated in the transition from 2000 to 2001 (i.e. December 31, 2000), argued that since the Gregorian Calendar has no year zero, the millennia should be counted from A.D. 1. Thus the first period of one thousand complete years runs from the beginning of A.D. 1 to the end of A.D. 1000, and the beginning of the second millennium took place at the beginning of 1001. The second millennium thus ends at the end of the year 2000. Then again, those who defend the opposite idea state that the new millennium started with the year 2000 (because of the changes made to the Gregorian calendar in 1582, or because the first millennium started in 1 A.D. and ended in 999 A.D., being the only millennium (along with the last millennium b.c.) not with 1000 years, but with 999 years).
    So there we go
