    I have a 400' deep well at the cabin up at 3000' in the Blue Ridge mountains. The water tastes great. Maybe I should start selling it.
    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    I heard you can make Holy Water by taking ordinarily tap water and boiling the hell out of it

    I've been to Poland Spring, Maine. Despite the wild nature pictures on the labels, the place looks just like Paterson, New Jersey. Might as well drink Newark tap water.....

    No, no, no! Just bottle it for your staff. After all, most RT employees have been drinking at the RT Koolaide fountain for years! Now we know the true source!

    Thanks Microsoft!

    I mulled this over for a while before replying as follows:

    No, I don't think we, the people who design, develop, and have spent the last 17 years continuously improving VCDS are terribly keen on helping you with a crack for it.

    In case you are not familiar with the term, a "crack" is a means of *stealing* software.

    Genuine VCDS systems, which don't require a crack, and which don't stop working when things get updated are available directly from us:
    https://store.ross-tech.com/shop/cat/vcds/ic/

    ... or from any of our authorized resellers:
    http://www.ross-tech.com/distributors.php

    Sincerely,

    -Uwe-

    Surely you could send him a virus to speed him along. Perhaps call it the VDPatch

    Amusingly, the person's name is typically associated with a female gender-identity.

    And tempting as it is, we avoid deliberately messing up people's cars or PCs.
