Hapster sent in the link to a New York Times story
(free reg. req. to read) about how the US and Russia are setting up a joint task force to make sure we don't accidently get into a nuclear exchange because of Y2K bugs in missle warning and launch software. According to the article, "The confidence-building operation will use U.S.
early-warning satellites and advanced computers, and
could reassure Moscow if Y2K computer problems in
Russia mistakenly signaled a missile launch somewhere
in the world."
