Fun things to do when cracked == true.

I thought it would be fun to list things we wish we can code to execute when a cracked app is detected;

1. show a pic of an ugly pirate (THIS IS YOU!)
2. add a cracked watermark over the screen at all times
3. change all sound effects to point to "cracked.mp3"

anything more creative or crazy out there?

Rickroll them!! Of course the file size will be increased for your legitimate users by the size of the video file... or you could send them to youtube.

How long before crimson, dorino and others jump on here to tell us there's no stopping crackers even though this is just a wishlist?

Send a message via Skype™ to rdklein
when you detect the crack, its important not to react immediatly, as then this part will also be cracked.
ideas: 1. delay (if crack then save in local adatabase a flag and date stamp)
if (date > ...) then action

2. connect to a server, set a flag there (using the UID) and check if another flag is set then react to be sure the cracked version got spread around before the anticrack can be detected. The flags can be set on the server after some time our count is reached.

just some ideas.
