Internet NTP Year 2028?

Postby kodak80 » Tue May 15, 2018 11:12 am

My MicroCosmos and a friends CosmosEx are both getting the time over wifi from the Internet NTP but the Atari is showing the date as 2028. The time, day and month are all correct. Any ideas on why the year is setting to 10 years in the future?

The CE boot message from the device on screen shows the NTP date correctly as 2018.

I have used both Rasparian Jessie and Stretch boot images and both are the same with the Year.

We are both using STEs with our devices.

This is the Y2K-bug in TOS on machines without factory fitted RTC.

There are several kinds of Y2kfix.prg to put in auto folder.

Thanks. Copied the Y2K patch into my AUTO folder and the year now shows correctly. :D
