 Millennium (TV series) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Millennium is a grim, suspenseful television series, produced by the creators of The X-Files and set during the run-up to the new millennium, premiering in 1996, but ultimately cancelled in 1999 (see below).
Chris Carter's original idea for Millennium was a series that would present a more mature point of view of the world from the perspective of a law enforcement officer than offered in his companion series The X-Files.
Episode 7#05 of The X-Files, entitled "Millennium", saw Lance Henriksen and Brittany Tiplady (in a cameo appearance) reprise their roles as Frank and Jordan alongside Mulder and Scully in a tale of necromancy and zombification of former Millennium Group members on the cusp of 1999/2000.

Millennium raised the level of abstraction provided by the system to the application developer.
While the Millennium prototypes made distribution invisible to the application developer, developers in other distributed systems must be very cognizant of the fact that they are creating distributed applications.
Millennium raised the programmer's level of abstraction without significant penalty to the application by aggressive optimization techniques throughout the lifetime of the application (even modifying the application while it is running), optimization of the underlying per-machine operating system, and eliminatation of unnecessary boundaries between the operating system and the application.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Millennium and Millenarianism
It is certain that the writer advocates the tenet of a re-formation of the world through the second advent of Christ, but it is not clear from the indications whether the author of the letter was a millenarian in the strict sense of the word.
Though millenarianism had found numerous adherents among the Christians and had been upheld by several ecclesiastical theologians, neither in the post-Apostolic period nor in the course of the second century, does it appear as a universal doctrine of the Church or as a part of the Apostolic tradition.
Cerinthus and the Ebionites are mentioned in later writings against the heretics as defenders of the millennium, it is true, but as cut-off from the Church.

 Golf, Algarve, Portugal - Millennium Course
Refurbishment to the existing nine holes commenced in May 1999 and included the complete rebuilding of the tees, greens and the old nine holes, but several new design features were incorporated with a view to simplifying the strategy of the course and in order to make it more golfer-friendly.
The two nines of the Millennium Course complement each other handsomely and have strong traits of Martin Hawtree's traditional architectural style.
The terrain is partially open; similar to that of the original 27 holes, whereas the remainder meanders through attractive pinetrees so the fairways tend to be narrow, placing a premium on accurate play.

 The New Millennium Started On 1/1/2001
We never heard of a firm that was sentenced to repeat the "millennium voyage" one year later with the same people free of charge.
But the "millennium fever" had already broken out, and so the word "millennium" was often heard at that turn of the year.
In 1999, I got to know an argument for celebrating the millennium at 1/1/2000, that seemed not too bad to me: "Imagine, during the year 2000, the 1/1/2000 proves to be the correct millenium date.

 Millennial Madness: Blame it on Dennis the Short
Greedy travel companies, event promoters and hotels made millions bilking the gullible through 'millennium party packages' to obscure places and contrived events that desperately needed the tourist trade (especially during their hurricane season when the party was scheduled to occur...).
The writer then sheepishly apologized because he was was aware the millennium didn't start until 2001, but still supported the efforts because "everyone else was doing it then." Subsequent editorial staff in local papers have continued this nonsense, refusing to take a stand and make the correction.
The dating of the millennium is based on the faith that 1) there was a historical Jesus, and 2) that Jesus was born at a specific time and place.

This is sometimes called the "odometer effect" because many automobile owners perceive the rollover of their mileage indicators to include a long string of zeroes as a milestone of sorts.

Many have told me their organization knew 2001 was the start of the next millennium, but they did not wish to contradict their advertisers who all want to have "Millennium Sales." Some of these companies in the later part of 2000 planned on saying "Oops, we made a mistake.
Common sense might suggest that the year 2000 is the dawning of the third millennium, but it is in fact the waning of the second.
The first millennium began in C.E. There is no year zero in our calendar: the sequence of years passes directly from 1 B.C.E. to C.E. Adding a thousand years to the year 1 equals the year 1001, marking the start of the second millennium.

The virtual season on the Millennium Compendium fan site is currently "airing" the "Twilight Years" episode, in which Frank Black searches for a gruesome killer, and promises to premiere "Acolyte" on Friday.
Their job is a bit easier than that of a real show's producers, however, since the "Millennium" virtual season consists entirely of teleplay scripts; they have no plans to try to film the virtual season.
Following the style of the show these fans adored, most of the scripts are self-contained stories, with some continuing the complex story arcs that developed across three seasons on the air.
