		Playboy Ready for Y2K

      After what it said was "rigorous testing," Playboy says its online
Playmate Database is ready for the new millennium. "Several members of the
Playboy Cyber Club expressed concern that the Playmate data, particularly
the measurements, might not be year 2000 (Y2K) compliant," explained Rodger
Brown, editor of Playboy Online ( "I immediately
asked our programmers to assess the situation." The online Playmate Database
contains statistical and biographical information on the 535 women who have
appeared in the Centerfold since Playboy debuted in December 1953. Playboy
Online's Y2K compliance test of the Playmate Database took longer than
expected, Brown said, "because the programmers insisted on checking each of
the statistics in the Database with the original photos in the magazine.
