    On a serious note, what is it that WMP is calling a secret?

    Apparently, according to the first page on Google for "media-player maximum secrets", they're talking about content licenses or DVD keys.

    So that's why my IPOD knows about my man crush on Connery, and why it's been creating a theatrical reenactment of all Shakespearian plays as read by him.

    To a cryptographer, they're "cryptographic secrets". To everyone else, they're "passwords" and "keys".

    "they're talking about content licenses or DVD keys."

    So there's a limit to how much DRM they can physically cram into my computer? Cool.

    I think we got ourselves an OMD fan here! I saw them live this past Sunday, in Dublin, and it was most excellent, but they didn't play "Secret"...

    There are things that I cannot tell, And there are things that you know damn well. This is getting very hard for me, I guess we'd better just wait and see. Seeecreeettt...

    Except that WinAmp basically uses Windows Media Player in the background... (WinAmp uses DirectShow to play back video, which is what Windows Media Player uses as well). So WinAmp will have the same secrets Windows Media Player does. Might want to stick with VLC. At least it'll keep a secret, and you can audit it to make sure it does.

    So what should I do? Buy the DVDs and hide them behind my Star Trek collection, or get a Mac?
