Correction (of sorts): Argentina will not move its clocks _back_ this
coming Sunday (true, it won't move them forward either, but you know what I
mean). The country hasn't exactly stopped using DST but rather decided not
to (re)introduce "daylight-wasting" time. It will keep its clocks on what
DST would have been.

It's the 2000th year, 200th decade, 20th century, and 2nd millennium -
the last year of the last decade of the last century of the millennium.
(But it's no longer 1999, the 1990s, the 1900s, or the 1000s.)
