Of course not. I was just pointing out that even if a chip has date-related processing, and it isn't compliant, and it generates false results, you still don't necessarily cause the whole device to fail. Most of the time you just confuse its reporting functions - a warning light goes on, or fails to go on, or you get odd-looking numbers on your maintenance report, or whatever. Since everyone knows about the Y2K issue, that isn't a big deal.
