US nukes are under control of 8 inch floppy !

Please note 100 KBytes 8 inch floppy with launch software.
The last time many of us thought about our nation's big land-based nuclear missiles was probably during the Cold War. But today, there are nearly 450 of these giant Minuteman-3s, as they're called, tucked away in underground silos, ready to launch, on the president's command.
Why still nothing better ? Well,  it will cost hefty $350 B over next 10 years.

99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: Will President send missile launch command on floppy ? That is extremely safe way of nuclear miss firing. However, in case of first attack from the other side it would be pretty late. :)
Well don't forget, that in the seventies even modem was high and unproved technology.
