Does anyone else feel uncomfortable at giving kavasoft their machine ID number without having any idea of how secure their database might be?  Or am I just being Paranoid about security.

Most of us haven't received the code yet, so most of us don't care. Anyway, judging by the way the Kavasoft server went down when the Giving Tree went on it wouldn't stand up to most attacks.

Don't worry, I'm paranoid enough to use special emails for everything and read the Security Configuration guide, so...

Wow. MacHeist 4. I can't believe it's actually happening.
Unfortunately, it looks like I'm sitting this one out because of aggressive version requirements. It's been real.

According to their email which I just got they exchange the code for your machine ID number.

The computer number for my machine (from the iConquer app registration dialog) is rather different from it's MAC address.  There might well be some encryption in the program itself.

Of course, I haven't gotten the email yet, so can't be 100% sure.

Ahhh...  I see that now.  Thanks for catching that.
