Given your long term horizon - forget about Y2K. Even if it has a major effect, it will be short term and your investments will easily have recovered by the time you tap them.

Of course, if you want to play short term, I'm sure that there are plenty of people with MF's/stock picks/newsletters etc... designed to capitalize on Y2K, I saw on CNBC last night someone hocking a Y2K Mutual Fund, they said they would buy companies that would benefit and short companies that weren't going to be prepared.

Personally - I'm not thinking about Y2K at all, I'm 26, Y2K will be ancient history by the time I'm ready to tap into any of my investments.
