Nicholas Data Services & the Year 2000

Over the last few months, those of us that man the Nicholas Data Services "Hotline" have received countless phone calls regarding the Year 2000 problems.  In fact it is almost impossible to escape the predictions of doom and gloom that permeates the media these days, regarding this issue. The truth is no one really knows the extent that the problems surrounding the millennium bug will cause. 

This web page will try to help you understand what the Year 2000 problem is and what steps you as a Nicholas Data Services software user should take to   insure that your business isn't brought to a complete halt on January 1, 2000.

Nicholas Data  Y2K Information Index:

What is the Year 2000 Problem?


 

 

The Year 2000 problem (a.k.a. Y2K Problem or Millennium bug) will be caused by the fact that some computer systems won’t be able to distinguish between the year 2000 and the year 1900. This will cause all sorts of malfunctions and miscalculations, and already is creating long nights for management and computer technology workers at companies around the world.

The problem started around 40 years ago, when programmers decided to store dates in computer data files without century designations. March 17, 1956, for example, written in a computer data file as 19560317, became 560317, and all programs written in this manner were based on the assumption that all dates were set in the 1900s. These same programs will therefore assume that January 1, 2000 (stored as 000101), is actually January 1, 1900, and a wide variety of calculation and sorting errors will occur.

At first glance, the decision to store the dates in this manner may seem like a serious blunder. However at that time one of the most precious resources on computers was disk space – available only in limited supply and at a very high price. Some programmer came up with the bright idea to save some space by removing the century from the date fields. Two bytes doesn’t sound like a much of a savings. But if a program stores 40 dates per record and the plan is to store 10 million records over the next 10 years the savings would be 800Mb of disk space.  800Mb of disk space probably cost more than $200,000 to purchase and maintain during the 1950’s. If you managed the programmers and they told you that they had designed a way to save your company more than $200,000 on disk space and no changes would necessary for 40 years, what would you do? This wasn’t a serious blunder after all.

Where do we go from here?

Unfortunately for members of the current generation, these programmers of the past that made that simple space saving decision have left us with a very complex problem. In order to address the Year 2000 problem in your company, you will have to address problems in several areas of computer technology. In addition, the rapid advances in computer connectivity, which have occurred over last twenty years, have also greatly amplified this problem. Even if you fix everything in your company, if the computers you connect to, are not Year 2000 compliant, you will have trouble. The "Surviving 2000" article in this newsletter will attempt to guide you through the steps necessary to get your company ready for January 1, 2000.

Surviving 2000

A Guide for Nicholas Data Software Users


 

 

Make no mistake: Year 2000 problems threaten every business using computer automation. Therefore it is essential that every business using a computer (and who isn’t?) create a plan for dealing with the Y2K problem. In this article we will attempt to list some guidelines for creating such a plan. We will focus our strategy with respect to your business and its use of Nicholas Data Services’ software. However, you should be able to adapt this plan to many other aspects of your business that are affected by the Year 2000 problem.

Step 1. Assess the Scope of the Problem

Assessing how and by how much you will affected by the Year 2000 problem is probably the most difficult and most important part of attacking this dilemma. Our normal tendency is to skip this step and jump right into fixing equipment and replacing software.   However without a careful examination of your company’s computing resources and its Y2K compliance you could easily be lured into a false sense of security and even worse you could be in for some big surprises on the New Year of 2000.  Be sure to make a serious effort to assess every aspect of your company.

The first step in the assessment process is to make an inventory of every piece of computer equipment, every piece of network hardware, all commercial software packages, all custom software packages and all telecommunications systems in your company. Write down everything in a list. Don’t exclude anything at first. Write down the make and model of your telephone system, your PC’s, your Modems and fax machines, the operating system that runs your network, the software that you use within your business and include those little software packages you use to file recipes. Write down everything.

With those lists in hand, you can start to prioritize each element and begin to organize the whole project. If your business doesn’t have an up-to-date hardware and software inventory, it really needs to have one. Begin work there at once. Take these lists and divide them into categories. We suggest; computer hardware, computer software and telecommunications equipment. You might be able to come up with more. Then attempt to list the elements in each category in order of importance. For example, your main Routeman computer or server is certainly more important that your second printer and so forth.

Step 2. Gather Information

From inventorying, move to gather information about each item listed on your inventory. Begin this by contacting every hardware maker and software supplier that has provided products for your business. Ask them for an up-to-date written statement of the Y2K compliance for every piece of equipment or software that you own. This letter will serve as our statement for Nicholas Data Services software. If you do not get a satisfactory statement the best you can hope for is that the supplier shows a willingness to give the best available information and will try to work with you to solve your Y2K problems. In addition to contacting them directly, many vendors have web sites that list compliance information. If you use Microsoft Word, or Wordperfect or Lotus spreadsheets for example, you can easily access the version level specifications for Y2K compliant products.

Furthermore there are many Y2K specific websites that provide a great deal of valuable information for evaluating software and testing hardware. Later in this newsletter, we will provide website addresses which you can use to download software programs that test the year 2000 compliancy of you PCs.

Whatever information you receive back from you vendors, don’t trust the information as gospel. It is not that these vendors would try to misinform you but that they can’t know every detail about how you use these products, what other non-compliant products they interface with or how well your staff is trained to use these products. In the end it is essential that you do your own compliance testing, in your computing environment, in addition to seeking vendor’s compliance statements.

In the next section we will take you through testing your system with the focus on Routeman configurations. After that testing, you’ll move to correcting your Y2K problems by upgrading existing software to newer releases or replacing older non-compliant hardware.

Step 3. Testing & Upgrading Your Systems

We will examine a plan for testing your systems from the view of our average Routeman user. Your testing strategy may differ slightly due because of software or hardware configurations that are unique to your situation.

In testing a Routeman System for Year 2000 compliance we must examine the system on at least three levels (there may be more depending on the type and nature of other programs and devices on your system). These levels are; a) the Computer Hardware/BIOS level, b) the Operating System software level and c) the Application software level. Let’s look at each of these levels as they relate to Year 2000 compliance on a Routeman system.

Computer Hardware/BIOS
Easiest to Test . . . Cheapest to Fix

The part of your computer hardware that is sensitive to year 2000 problems is actually software. This software called BIOS is permanently stored on a ROM (read only memory) chip on the motherboard of the PC. The BIOS (which stands for Basic Input Output System) is the first program run by the computer as it boots up. The system BIOS on your PC is a program that controls all the processes of starting your machine, including setting the date and time. Many software packages access this date and time during calculations and processing. So, if your BIOS is not Y2K-Ready, neither is much of your software.

Word around computer circles is that most personal computer constructed after 1996 is Y2K compliant, however there are reports of PCs manufactured as recently as 1997 have Y2K non-compliant BIOSs. In some cases, PC BIOSs can be flashed (reprogrammed) to solve the problem. In others, new BIOS chips are available and can be installed by trained technicians.

The only way to be sure about your hardware is to test it. We recommend that you solicit help from a qualified technician to test each of your computers. There are also many test programs that are commercially available or better yet free on the Internet. One very useful test program that we at Nicholas Data Services have used to test our PCs is called "YMark2000". You can download this program from the NTSL Online website at "http://www.nstl.com/". Instructions to download and use this program are readily available on the site. It is very easy to use and it tests Y2K compliance and Leap Year compliance through Year 2008. For more information on this test program contact our support team via the NDS Support Hotline.

While testing the 20 or so PCs in our facilities we found that almost all PCs manufactured after 1996 would work after the year 2000. Our newest computers moved smoothly across the midnight of the January 1st, Year 2000. Most of our older machines 1995-1997 did not make the change automatically but were able to function properly after changing the date manually with the BIOS setup screen. If you’re running a machine that was manufactured before 1995 you probably should investigate purchasing new hardware. The performance and pricing of computer today make these new machines outstanding values. In any case, don’t assume your computer is ready for 2000, Test, Test, Test !!!

Operating System Software
Here’s where it gets tricky...Read this section very carefully!!.

Operating system software is next level of your system that must be tested and proved compliant. This level is of great importance to our users in that it can be the most costly to upgrade. The operating system is the software that takes over when the BIOS has completed its work. The operating system is the software that controls whether you have a single-user system or a multi-user network. There are operating systems of many types. We can divide operating systems into two types, single-user and multi-user operating systems.

Single User Systems - DOS/Windows
Bill Gates to the rescue....

The single-user operating systems for which Routeman has been released since the mid 1980’s include DOS, Windows 3.0, 3.1, Windows ’95 and Windows ’98. All of these products have been developed and marketed by Microsoft Corporation. Microsoft is solely responsible for upgrading these products and declaring them Year 2000 compliant. You can identify the Year 2000 compliance of any Microsoft software package by visiting the Microsoft Year 2000 Resource Center website at "http://www.microsoft.com/technet/year2k/".

Nicholas Data Services, Inc. customers that use the DOS operating system to run Routeman must be aware of several very important issues. First they must determine which version of DOS they are using by getting to a C:> prompt and type "command". The system will respond with the version number. As of this writing Microsoft has posted information that DOS versions less than 5.0a are not year 2000 compliant. DOS versions 5.0a through the last release 6.22 are compliant with minor issues. These minor issues however may not be a minor issue to your operation. They include the fact that the Microsoft Backup software does not properly recognize dates greater than 1999. If you are using DOS to run Routeman, Nicholas Data Services recommends that you upgrade your single-user system to a fully compliant version of Microsoft Windows ’98.

Nicholas customers that run Routeman under Microsoft Windows may be running under one of several versions, Windows 3.0, Windows 3.1, Windows ’95 or Windows ’98. As of this writing Microsoft has posted information that Windows 3.1 and Windows ’95 are Year 2000 compliant with minor issues. Windows ’98 is listed as fully compliant. No mention is made of Windows 3.0.

Nicholas recommends that all Windows users upgrade to the fully compliant version of Windows ’98 prior to the end of next year. In most cases when you upgrade to Windows ’98 you will upgrading your PC hardware. If that is the case we recommend that you purchase a computer with at least a Pentium 233Mhz processor, 32MB of RAM memory (64 MB is better) and at least 1 Gigabyte of hard disk space.

Multi User Systems
Big bucks ... bigger concerns.

Users that have purchased Routeman to run on mult-user systems are using the Novell LAN (Local Area Network) operating system or either SCO (Santa Cruz Operation) Xenix or Unix operating systems. Novell networks can be identified by the configuration of individual PC workstations on each user’s desktop connected to a central server. Each of the workstations on a Novell network is a fully functioning PC and may be running Windows software or other menuing system.

Xenix and Unix networks in contrast can be distinguished by the use of "dumb" character based terminals as workstations, which are connected to the central server. These terminals always return to % or # prompt when exiting Routeman. In most of the Unix / Xenix configurations distributed by Nicholas Data Services, Wyse terminals were installed as workstations. In some instances PCs have also been used as workstations on a Unix / Xenix network. In these instances, the program "Hitansi" is used to connect the PC to the server.

Novell Networks
Still good to go...

Year 2000 considerations for the Novell operating system have been posted by Novell, Inc. on their website. You can view the Y2K status of various Novell products at the following URL:
"http://corp.novell.de/year2000/product.html".

Any Routeman user utilizing a Novell operating system must bring the software up to a version that is listed by the company as Year 2000 compliant. To determine the version of Novell you utilize exit your Nicholas Data Services application software and get to a system prompt. In most cases this prompt will be similar to "F:\PUBLIC\". At the prompt type in NVER and press enter. This should return your Novell Netware release level. Release levels can be as low as v.2.12 in older systems all the way up to current versions of the Novell product which is Netware 5.0.

In summary, the Year 2000 compliant versions of Novell are versions 3.2, 4.11 and 5. Therefore if you have a version of Novell lower than 3.2 such as versions 2.12, 2.15, 2.2 or 3.11, these version will have to upgraded to version 3.2. If you are using a version higher than 3.2 but lower than 4.11, such as versions 4.0 or 4.10, you will have to upgrade to 4.11. In any case if you wish to bring your Novell up to the latest standard you can upgrade to Novell’s Netware 5. To upgrade, contact a local Novell authorized dealer and ask for an upgrade quote. In some cases, customers using older versions of Novell may be required to upgrade or add new computer hardware. Unfortunately this will part of the price for the Year 2000 bug.

Xenix
Critical concerns for Xenix Users.

By far the most dramatic effect felt by Nicholas Data Services software users will by those companies that utilize the Xenix operating system. In its day Xenix was a very cost effective way to build a network especially in the day of high cost PC hardware. Unfortunately SCO (Santa Cruz Operation) the maker of Xenix has abandoned this operating system in recent years. The end result is that Nicholas Data customers that are presently using the Xenix operating system, will have to migrate to another operating system before the year 2000.

Xenix users essentially have two choices to move to a Novell LAN operating system or to the SCO Unix operating system. (In answer to every technician’s next question, Nicholas Data Services software will not currently work on a Windows NT operating system network or a peer-to-peer network, such as Windows for Work Groups or Lantastic.) The choice between Novell and Unix will depend on the customers willingness and ability to place full PC workstations on each employees desk.

Fortunately with the commodity conditions in the PC hardware market these days this decision is a far easier proposition to swallow than just a few years ago.

If you wish to utilize programs for PCs such as Windows, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Lotus or Quicken for Business, then your choice should be a Novell network. NDS will charge $1,495.00 for converting your Xenix data files to a Novell format and for the Nicholas Data application programs that will run on a Novell network.

To have a Novell network installed we recommend that you contact several dealers in your area that are Novell authorized and have them provide you with quotes for a network. The networking business is very competitive and you should be able to coax a good price from a dealer by allowing them to compete for your business. Although Nicholas Data Services is no longer in the hardware sales business we will be happy to provide consultation to our customers that are on support. In your search for a network specialist please be wary of technicians that insist on installing only Windows NT or Windows for Workgroups. These techs claim that Novell is a antiquated operating system. In reality these techs are usually under trained and will not provide the long term support that you require. If you wish to continue to have your employees work on "dumb" character-based terminals, such as Wyse terminals, then the Unix operating system may be your best alternative.

Unix
Still a major player...

If you are running a Unix network or are considering it, you may find SCO products Year 2000 compliance information on their website at http://www.sco.com/year2000/. SCO has posted that it will release a Y2K Supplement for the Year 2000 problem in the first half of 1999. This supplement will released for versions 5.0.2 and 5.0.5. If you are running a version below these release levels you should be making preparations to upgrade your system. To check the version of Unix you are currently running, type the command "uname -X" (case sensitive) from a % or # prompt and press <Enter>.

In most cases we recommend that Xenix system users upgrade to a Novell network. If you are considering installing a Unix network please call our support line for a more individualized consultation on upgrade issues. In any case, if you are using Xenix or if you believe that you have special circumstances in your operation (such as a multi-location configuration), contact the NDS "Hotline" for an individual consultation.

Application Software
Here’s where Nicholas Data comes in...

The highest level of your system that must be tested and proved compliant is the application software. Application software is the software packages that you directly interact with every day. Your Routeman software is in this category along with other programs you may use such as your word processing programs, spreadsheets, databases, etc...

The proper way to prepare for the Year 2000 in this category is to sit at your computer and make list of all programs that you use. Then take the list and prioritize the programs in order of importance to your business. Once this is done, work down the list and check with the maker of each program for year 2000 compliance information. Make sure you check on every program that is vital to your operation. In most cases the software maker will have a website describing the steps to take to insure that your software is Y2K compliant. If you cannot insure that a piece of softwarewill be Y2K compliant, you must make contingency plans to upgrade or replace the software.

Be sure to check the Moneybuilder Construction Software box on this request form.

OnQ
Report Writer . . . Not Year 2000 Compliant

We have discovered very serious issues concerning the Year 2000 capability of the OnQ Report Writer. Complicating these issues is the fact that we purchase the OnQ product on behalf of our customers, from Application Development Systems, the maker of Workstation Basic. We are diligently working to make OnQ a compliant product or to find a suitable replacement. While we are not certain as to the exact timing, we are confident that we will offer an excellent report writer to compliment our software modules. Information regarding the upgrade or replacement of OnQ will be issued to users of OnQ as soon as possible. To insure that you receive OnQ Year 2000 upgrade information as soon as it is available, check the OnQ box on the Y2K Software Request Form on the back of this newsletter and return it to Nicholas Data Services as soon as possible.

Conclusion

Routeman Y2K


 

 

*** IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER***
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

Nicholas Data Services considers a product Year 2000 ready if the product’s performance and functionality are unaffected by processing of dates prior to, during and after the Year 2000, but only if all products (for example hardware, software and firmware) used with the product properly exchange accurate date data with it. Routeman Y2K is a work in progress and is provided "AS IS" without any warranties. Based on testing to date Routeman Y2K is currently Year 2000 ready. Nicholas Data Services expressly disclaims any warranties or representations as to the accuracy or completeness of the software and expressly disclaims any implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. The software is not suitable for use in all situations, and any use by you of the software is at your own risk.

Nicholas Data Services' assessment of Year 2000 readiness is an ongoing effort, and the information regarding Year 2000 is changing rapidly. Because of the complex nature of the interaction of the components of any modern computer system, the installation of Routeman Y2K or other Nicholas Data Services Y2K products should not be considered as an alternative to thorough testing. Nicholas Data Services strongly recommends that users perform or have performed tests such as those described in Nicholas Data Services' November 1998 Newsletter and report to their technical support provider, any problems they find during this testing.

Introducing Routeman Y2K
Y2K Compliant Version - Now Shipping



 

 

In keeping with our commitment to provide the best in support and service to our customers, Nicholas Data Services is proud to announce the release of our newest version of the Routeman route management system Routeman Y2K. Routeman Y2K has been thoroughly developed and field tested to insure that Nicholas Data Services clients can feel confident that the Routeman management system will continue to operate properly as we enter the new millennium on January 1, 2000. 

The look and feel of Routeman Y2K will be identical to that of the last Routeman release, version 7.5. In addition to Year 2000 enhancements this version of Routeman includes many behind the scenes upgrades to make the software operate error free. Routeman Y2K is available for DOS, Windows, Novell Netware LAN and SCO Unix platforms.  Xenix is not a Year 2000 compliant platform. Please see the accompanying article "Surviving 2000 - Xenix".

We are thoroughly confident in the quality of this software as Routeman Y2K has been fully tested in over 20 customer locations for several months. The Routeman Y2K upgrade package is made up of six 3.5" diskettes, that includes a new version of the Workstation Basic resource manager. The package also includes detailed instructions to allow for a painless installation process. As always the Nicholas Data Support "Hot-line" will be available should problems with the conversion to the new program arise.

The cost of the Routeman Y2K package is $49.95 to Nicholas Data Services customers on support. This charge is held to minimum to cover only the cost of the diskette media, shipping charges and processing costs. A new revised Routeman Y2K manual set is available for the price of $59.95. The new manual is very similar to the Routeman 7.5 manual.

Nicholas customers not on support will be required to reinstate their support agreement to receive the Y2K upgrade. A reinstatement fee will be charged based on the number of months the Routeman user’s support agreement has been expired. The reinstatement fee will be equal to the total amount monthly support payments since the agreement expired, up to a maximum of six months, using our current support rates (See the related article "Technical Support for a New Millennium"). For example, if your monthly support rate is $87.50 and you have been off support for three months the reinstatement fee be 3 x $87.50 or $262.50. The maximum reinstatement fee for a customer with a $87.50 support rate would 6 x $87.50 or $525.00. Please note that the $87.50 rate was used as an example. Your reinstatement fee will vary based on the support rate for your system. Those customers not wishing to reinstate support can purchase the upgrade with accompanying documentation for the list price.

We believe this reinstatement fee is reasonable and fair since NDS customers that have maintained their support payments have financed the development of the Routeman Y2K product.

After reading this entire newsletter, please fill out the Nicholas Data Services Y2K Software Request Form and send it back to expedite the delivery of your new software.

Technical Support
For A New Millennium


 

 

We at Nicholas Data Services have been working very hard to address all issues surrounding the Y2K problem. The truth is however, due to the complex nature of this problem you may still experience some type of failures because of overlooked factors. That is why it only makes sense to secure as much defense as you possibly can against unforeseen problems. What could be better than relying a group of experienced professionals that has been tested under fire in a wide variety of situations for over 13 years.

The Nicholas support team offers comprehensive support for the wide range of technical issues that face your company. Whether it is a printer problem, operating system software issue or advice on how to bill a termite customer, Nicholas support almost always has the right solution. This type of service is unique in todays highly specialized computer industry and it’s yours for only a few dollars per day. We believe our staff is the best support team in the pest control industry. The reason that we feel that we can make this claim is that our customers tell us this everyday and have done so for many years.

Nicholas Data Services set out in 1985 to provide the very best software system to PCO’S and to offer the very best technical support possible. In that time we have sold over 600 Routeman software packages. Over the years few of those PCOs stopped using Routeman and went to another software package. It is especially gratifying to note that many of these customers have returned to Routeman after a year or two of frustration with the new software.

The primary reason for their frustrations are: (1) the books don’t balance at the end of the month and (2), they cannot get competent technical support representatives to fix their problems or even talk with them. Bob Priest, Rick Rooks, Jo Ann Neuhauser and Mike Marika have been with Nicholas Data for over 10 years. They may know the Pest Control business from an accounting perspective, better than some of their customers.

Our support rates increased slightly on January 1, 1999.  In addition, we will no longer offer support on a monthly basis. As of January 1, 1999, support payments will be accepted in quarterly or annual increments only. Unfortunately this policy must be instituted because of customers that continually drop and reinstate their support.

Many of you will be required to upgrade your current system or convert to a new and different software platform in the coming months. It will be very important that you can obtain objective information when dealing with various computer dealers that speak in vague technical terms. We have converted many of customers to new systems over the last few years and we are very experienced in guiding our clients through this process. That is why we would like to stress how vital it will be for you to maintain your NDS support throughout the coming year.
