Just something to think about.
that's a really smart idea!! there's tons of different copyright protection things out there, but almost all can be cracked somehow. something personalized like that is pretty much undisputible.

PixelMover - have you had anyone try to 'crack' your copy protection?

This would make a GREAT challenge/egg hunt! It would also help you improve your method, as you learn how truly devious we all are. [g]

This reminds me of this clever product:

Hmm challenge indeed...the average output size of the file on the CD that goes to the customer is generally no less than 65MB (30x40CM CMYK). Often more if the artwork is asked to be kept in layers or higer resolution is needed. Also, I vary place and type of the 'tag', just in case...and it may not even be 'visible' in normal view...The problemn is, to actually test your cunningness and deviousness I'd have to post a full-sized file..It just wouldn't work on smaller files...care to download 64MB on dial-up anyone?

Intel craftsmanship? Get real.

For those who actually believe Intel engineers etched a special message to Billg on the chip, "Plu-eeze!"

Like him or not, Billg's little empire put (and still puts) lots-n-lots-n-lots of $$ into the pockets of a lotta Intel folks. Methinks Intelites would be praising Mr. Bill, not burying him.

Now if the claim was a few chipmakers at Motorola engaged in a little tomfoolery, that might be a little more plausible.

Regardless, it's a sloppy job of photo maniupulation. Cute, but sloppy.
