Throughout the year, much concern is raised on Earth over a feared computer glitch known as Y2K or the Millennium Bug, which had the potential to cause technological havoc as clocks changed from 1999 to 2000 (the "00" in the date being expected to cause problems for many computer systems). The concern ends up being unfounded, though not without a little help from one, possibly two incarnations of the Doctor. (PDA: Millennium Shock)

Due to time zone differences, the above events technically occurred hours prior to the incident in San Francisco.
