Y2K fix is patented?

According to this MSNBC Article, the primary, and oldest method of fixing the Y2K bug, has been patented. I hate to tell this (*expletive deleted*) idiot, but the whole windowing trick (dividing a two digit year so that the upper end is the previous millennium) has been around longer than his useless (*expletive deleted*) has been. Get a life, loser.

A.T. adds: Someone should go over to ye olde patent office and wake the folks up over there. That's like when someone tried to patent the concept of "multimedia" too. At least it gives the lawyers something to do other than drilling holes in the heads of small woodland creatures.
