Corrected entry: At one point, an underground chamber is described as having a 40-by-30 foot video wall at one end, and having been built by excavating 250 metric tons of earth. Assuming the earth to be of average density, the room would be less than 2 meters long.

Correction: The 250 metric tons of earth referred to the databank underground, not its control room.

Corrected entry: In Chapter 5, the computer can check 30M keys per second and has been running for 15 hours. Given these two numbers, the time elapsed would be insufficient to brute force a 64-bit key.

Correction: It says TRANSLTR has 3 million processors, not that it checks 30 million keys per second.
