European Union (EU) prosecutors investigating Microsoft's compliance with a 2004 anti-trust judgement have stumbled upon documents indicating the Y2K threat was an elaborate hoax.
The documents are said to include emails from Bill Gates, Steve Wazniak and other industry CEO's dating back as far as 1990 that call for a massive act to retaliate for being called nerds at school.
One email from an undisclosed source includes the following text.
"Those big tough jocks from Lakeside have to pay. They have to pay for all the wedgies, the times I was locked in my school locker with ferrets, the times they made me smell their fingers at the school dance.
Harvard wasn't enough; all the money in the world isn't enough. I want them and their average wage families to suffer under the fear of the family truck not starting and playstations blowing up.
All I want is to rule the world. And to be loved!"
The paper trail follows the plot from concept to the inclusion of others to commercialise the idea to ensure that they made money out of the scheme. Marketing documents also exist discussing potential names for the campaign including millennium bug, Y2K, Jock Rot, double digit date difficulty.
Said to be of particular concern is documents showing conversations where the nerds advise their co-abused hippy mates of the process and strategies used in the process of exacting revenge.
Interpol are now examining the origin of the Global Warming claims and have taken Al Gore into questioning about being bastardised at school.
