    Given enough effort, any security check can be defeated. The goal shouldnt be to prevent them from defeating your security, since thats impossible, the goal is to make it as time consuming and difficult as you can. Hopefully it costs them more to hack the program than it does to just buy it. Encrypting the serial numbers, even poorly, has the added benefit of making it a felony to reverse engineer the security.
    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.
