+ - Skynet System Adopted as Supercomputer Takes Control of US Nuclear Stockpile

Submitted by rofkool
rofkool (3603105) writes "The US has moved one step closer to a Skynet doomsday scenario as significant control of its nuclear weapons stockpile is to be handed to a supercomputer.

The Cray XC will operate within the Trinity system, a programme run by the US National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) at the Los Alamos National Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratories in New Mexico.

The move mimics the Terminator series of films, in which a computer system called Skynet is given command of the US military's nuclear weapons arsenal, eventually leading to total war between man and machine."

+ - Zombie Army: Y2K Bug Sends Draft Notices to 14,000 Pennsylvanian Men From 1800s->

Well, it's finally hit, albeit 14 years later. A computer glitch has seen military draft notices mistakenly sent to 14,215 men in Pennsylvania who were born between 1893-1897, ordering all recipients to register for the draft or face punishments of "a fine and imprisonment".

This might be a bit difficult for the men to do, since they're all, well, dead."
