Hi all,

small rectification:

> read Mr. Raymond's rant on this topic[1] and download the associated 
> tool[2].

Rant and tool are where I pointed at, but it is only because of a page 
on Eric Raymond's site[3] that I thought I remembered it was done by him.

Credit actually goes to John Walker.

My favourite quote from that page[1]:

	"(Rule of thumb--every time Microsoft use the word "smart," be on the 
lookout for something dumb)."
