NCT Compliance Search v1.0 Release Date is Friday! Check out this quote

By Andrew Pollack on 07/12/2005 at 11:36 PM EDT

At long last, with several copies in production `pre-release` use, I will be letting NCT Compliance Search 1.0 out into the public. The key difference between `Compliance Search` and nearly any other search product, is that normally a search tool isn't designed to find everything that could possibly match. Rather, they're all designed to sort through the potential matches and return a manageable set most likely to contain what you're looking for. In short, they're really more of a `filter` than a `collector`. They're designed NOT to find everything.

Compliance search is designed to find absolutely all matches, and store them in a safe spot where you can then print, archive, or otherwise manipulate them. A search tool gives you a list of what it found and a short description. Compliance search copies the actual document, or optionally `renders` that document to appear as it would if viewed natively in that source database (usually for non-mail databases where viewing a document out of context is not effective).

Compliance Search is being used by companies driven by a legal requirement to report all documents which mention a key phrase, and by companies looking to track activity related to a particular product or event. In addition to finding matches among documents, NCT Compliance Search can optionally reproduce an entire reply chain thread if just a single document member of that thread contains a match.

The very first production use of the product generated this quote, which I am eternally grateful for having recieved permission to publish.

Worked out great ! On the real search I received 22 results that searched
46 gig and finished in under five minutes. I was using two threads so as
not impact my mailserver.

Sounds really great .....By Jens Augustiny on 07/13/2005 at 12:19 PM EDT
Would have been really nice to have such a tool handy back in the days, when I
still was in my philological profession. Such a tool would enhance a lot the
datacollection, that was that painfull back then and was really necessary to be
able to do the real work on the material later on.

The truth is, I haven't had much to say that was worthy of more than a basic social media post -- until today. For my current work, I was assigned a new laptop. It's a real powerhouse machine with 14 processor cores and 64 gigs of ram. It should be perfect for running my development environment in a virtual machine, but it wasn't. VirtualBox was barely starting, and no matter how many features I turned off, it could ......

I want a military prepared to help us, not just hurt other people. As an American I expect that with the ridiculous funding of our military might, we are prepared for damn near everything.

The trolls do a reverse web search on those images looking for hits. When they find one on a site that looks like someone they can scare, they work it like ......
