You have a good point, Sean.
    I will remember about entering this information into the Agreement. Most
people don't look at that anyways! (At least, I never do...)
This is going to be very complicated to program. Once I get the main Key
Generator done, I will release the Source Code to everyone (Not the same one
that I will use, of course)

If anyone is willing to help me out, just send a line my way. Any ideas,
suggestions, is very appreciated!

illegal, but some people do)..
