The full Chinese text of a recent interview by the People抯 Daily Pyonyang correspondent with North Korean rocket scientists, for example, can be retrieved in just a few moments. U.S. mirror sites of People抯 Daily and the English-language China Daily considerably speed access for users in the United States. Between August 1 and November 30, 1998, the People抯 Daily carried 1235 or about ten articles per day which mentioned the United States. Over the same period People抯 Daily carried seventeen Y2K computer bug articles while Wenhui Bao [Shanghai] carried twenty-three. Nanfang Ribao [Guangzhou] has carried just four articles on Y2K during 1998, the first of which appeared on July 23. Computer industry journals carried far more articles mentioning Y2K. China Computerworld had 110 articles and China Computer News had 200 articles mentioning Y2K as of November 30.
