Adobe/Macromedia’s Y2J Problem

Apparently Adobe (nee Macromedia) is having a Y2J problem. Check the following from its site:

During the month of June 2008, certain product trials that are launched for the first time (regardless of when they were installed) will function for only one day instead of 30 days, due to an error in a line of code that counts down the remaining days in a trial.

As a result, the company has pulled all product trials and won’t be offering them again until next month. Bizarre.
