Russia Has Y2k Contingency Plans


"Russia will switch some crucial processes to manual control during the year 2000 changeover because it cannot afford to fix the Y2K bug on time, an official said Wednesday."

But I thought they were going to be ready?. Didnt they say Russia wasnt going to be a problem. They promised !

If they are going to switch to manual operation because they lack money to fix it, doesnt that mean they will remain in manual mode UNTIL they get money to fix it. For Russia, doesnt that pretty much mean forever?.

Only if "forever" is defined as "until the US runs out of money".
