As a further tip (for those who don't have their local version of White-out).
There are a type of pens, usually silver, gold, and copper 'inks' that actually write with paint. I used these to write on floppies (51/4, 31/2) as well as metal and glass. It's quite opaque (and removable). I believe other colors are available. The one's I refer to are US$1 - $2, each.
Another item writes (almost) anywhere are pens like a Rapidograph, loaded with India Ink. I used to use these in lab to label volumetric flasks. Resistant to any solvent washes off pretty easily.
Sometimes I have a discussion (like just now) and we are both seemingly in agreement.
But both side have to keep explaining their side because... the other guy don't seem to understand...

You are turning into a manager. The transformation is slow, but in the end you will not be able to listen at all and argue with a steady stream of buzzwords. Have you been bitten by one recently? Other signs are a strong allergic reaction to garlic, sunlight and holy water.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.
coworker: you should increment the version number an publish to TFS. me: what's the point? it will be the exact same code. coworker: correct, you should increment the version number and publish to TFS. me: but what's the point? coworker: you should increment the version number and publish to TFS.
...... me: oh, I see, they need a new version number to publish with SCCM, right? coworker: correct, you should increment the version number and publish to TFS. me: why don't you just tell me I should do that because of SCCM? coworker: you should increment the version number an publish to TFS. me: alright, never mind, gotta make a new version and publish to SCCM. coworker: ok, good.
