Developing alien technology? MS can help | The Register: "We're not quite sure what the difference is between 'redaction' and 'deleting' here, but presumably if we could work it out an MS black ops team would storm the building and erase our memories with an MIB-style device. Still, it's better to be safe than sorry, even if Microsoft does add the following caveat: **We recommend that you carefully review any documents redacted using this tool to confirm that all the information that you intended to redact was successfully redacted**. Yes, then eat the original, set fire to the building and kill yourself using the 'Redmond Blue Pill' as supplied with your end user licence. Thank you. Bootnote: *In our dictionary, 'redaction' is simply preparing for publication, or editing. Mind you, it is an 1873 edition - printed long before Microsoft redefined the English language paradigm with its magnificent Encarta offering."
