Oops!The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ,
I [don't] want to spoil anybody's appetite
I think you accidentally a word there. Or, maybe not.
Moves on: nor all thy Piety nor Wit
Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line,
Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it.
The Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyam
But that was before HTML and full-screen text editors.
This point was mentioned in a Star Trek: Deep Space Nine novel. I don't remember the title, but the main character was a Cardassian Engineer who had spent ten years on Terroc Nor before it was ceded to the Federation and renamed Deep Space [Station] Nine. He used an unknown service access tunnel to sneak off his Cardassian ship, and onto DS9 undetected. He hid in an unoccupied suite which had several broken items, including the food replicator. He got it working by removing and reprogramming a similar component from the toilet in another suite, reflecting that most people didn't like to think about where the raw organic material the replicators used came from. As I recall, the component recycled all organic waste (uniforms, et al) into a generic organic matrix which could be converted into anything the replicator had a program for.
