    "Just when you thought it was safe to start buying music from BuyMusic, another another Windows security flaw is found, in DirectX this time, that basically affects every possible windows configuration that is still supported. I wonder, will they indemnify me for this?"

    Wait, aren't these the same guys that refused to acknowledge the various XBox exploits even when that one hacker group released their proof-of-concept on how to install Linux on the box without even opening the machine? Yeah, real up-front.

    Oh, by the way, you can apply a patch from Microsoft's website, if you agree to the EULA stating that Microsoft can do whatever they want to any electronic device in your home and that you henceforth forfeit your soul to Satan.

    :edit: P.S. We'd better close the BuF Music Studio before someone tells us about their hot new thrash punk metal raggae rap song and links a MIDI that causes Skynet to take over all our boxes. :rolleyes:

    I have absolutely no idea where it can be found. I certainly didn't get it off Kazaa, and I'm sure no P2P programs carry it. ;)
