The threat of computer problems on New Year's Day has a large Christian group changing its plans.
The Promise Keepers organization had planned to hold rallies in state capitals across the country.
But after law enforcement agencies in several states expressed concerns about the Y-2-K threat, the men's ministry decided to change the plan.
Instead of rallying, Promise Keepers is urging members to stay home with their families and practice their faith there.
Some older computers will not recognize the year two thousand. It interprets double zeroes as 1900.
As a result, some systems could shut down crucial services if they are not fixed in time.
