Item # 3 in this recent article about very old US government software systems terrifies me
http://arstechnica.com/…/government-agencies-keep-sacrific…/
The author of the piece is thankful that the 53-year old Strategic Automated Command and Control System used by the DOD to deal with ICBMs, nuclear bombers, and the like is scheduled to be replaced in 2017.
Now, the current software runs on a 1976-vintage 16-bit minicomputer (I dimly remember the Series/1), that IBM removed from their sales catalog in 1988, so updating it seems in one sense a no-brainer, but, but, but, but, . . . sputter, sputter, choke, gasp, WTF!?
Man, I hope there's a really good plan for very long parallel operation before they turn off a system that has worked for 5 decades and turn on something new. And I'd really like to see the test cases they're using.
I suspect the Series/1 never got Internet-enabled. What about the new system, I wonder?
