    Bye bye SafeDisc 3! This shows almost anything can be cracked. "Where there's a will, there's a way"

    Shhhh... I think I hear a big pile of cash burning, cos that is what they might as well have just done with it all. I appreciate that the concept that copy protection is keeping people in jobs, but if they quit wasting so much and offered their product at more reasonable prices, perhaps people might be more willing to buy legitimate copies, and the rest of us wouldn't suffer for being unable to protect our investments. Come on, movies cost oodles and oodles of money to produce, but to buy a copy to own costs 1/4 of the price and is infinitely easier to copy... Go figure...
