I was wondering what all this was going to be used for.

My guess is its Tedds new copy protection scheme that he hinted at some
time ago.

Now lets put the guessing hat on.

Tedd releases a program. User gets it and needs a password. User gets
password from Tedd. User types password in. It gets encoded into a text
resource and a slightly different version is encoded into a prefs file.

User gives someone the program. The program "knows" its been registered
before because it has the text resource. It goes out and looks for the
prefs file. Its not there. no go. Need to contact Tedd again for another
password.

How good is my guess Tedd?
