Will Y2K KO McDonald's?

It will be interesting to see if McDeath can still operate on January 1,2000, or will their cash registers refuse to operate,etc. Will they have enough gas/diesel to keep their gernerators running when the grid crashes down. Will all the US beef stocks go bad from a lack of refrigeration, or will the National Guard be delivering ice for freezers(made how?) and propane for the grills?
I think Y2K is a torpedo speeding towards the corporate ship, and it will be interesting to see what happens. If we can just hold out one more year, there will be rough times ahead but it may just be the opportunity we have all been waiting for to get rid of the Corporate State for good. Possible danger points are famines if the collapse is really severe(Like ALL the utilities going down for several months) and the possibility of martial law imposeed by desperate capitalists who've never turned a spade in their lives, and the civil war that martial law in a country as divided as the United Snakes would surely bring.
Pork up all you want, corporate barons-in one year you will starve and freeze!
McSpotlight: As far as I know, McD's run NT servers and PCs on a wide-area ATM backbone; while they may have some Y2K problems, they probably won't be too badly hit.
