Don't a lot of programs, both free and proprietary, come with a macro

Anyone heard or seen the supposedly "unrippable CD" from Charley Pride?
Are they putting it under the counter when anyone wearing a DeCSS shirt
comes into the record store? All I know about it is that the patented
rip-proofing (done by sunncomm.com) happens in the manufacturing process
-- you can't burn a rip-proof CD, only press one.
Jack Moffitt and I are kind of puzzled as to what would play on all
CD players but not be read by any CDROM drives. Could rip-proof CDs
simply be bullshit?
