I have discovered a slight problem with Y2k and the setup we are using here
and figured I'd better mention this for everyone.

If you are using the radusers.exe program to dump users to a text file so
you have a backup incase SQL server goes down. Well radusers.exe doesn't
seem to understand that 00 is next year and thinks any users who are paid up
thru next year are expired so they don't get put in the users file.

I'm not sure if it's something in radusers of if it's a stored procedure
that does this but the end result is any users who's expire date is beyond
12/31/99 won't be able to login since they are missing from the users file.
