Old Nuclear Foes Join To Avert Y2K Catastrophe


Quote: "Two interpreters will be on hand at all times. Three oversized wall screens can zero in on the area of any alerts. One is to stay tuned to television news. Another may be used to show videos to break boredom. The 1983 film WarGames -- in which Matthew Broderick played a computer hacker who finds an electronic backdoor to NORAD and nearly trips the Third World War -- would be a ``good choice'' for entertainment, said Richard Russell, the center's chief engineer. He has put in a video system capable of showing the PAL video format used in Russia."
