CD Protections Update 
Updated the CD Protection page.

Received an E-Mail from Bidouill, the creator of BlindRead, which stated that he was getting a lot of e-mail asking why BlindRead is not able to copy the Dummy Files on certain game CDs. For now BlindRead does NOT support copying these files but in the next release this will be (together with some very nifty features!). No release date has been set on this version.

Hacking Attempt...
Someone as been trying to get access codes for this domain. The only thing the f*cker didn't think of that he left his signature behind when trying to do so. My provider has given me the full account information of this loser who is located in The Hague - The Netherlands (using a BART.NL account). So I know where to go next time it happens as we got all the information we need!
