Real Woes - Was: D-Cell Rocketh The Haus

probably has more trick cookie transmissions in it than anyone's ever
dreamed. And there's no other option now, if you want to play Real
What a surprise. The only thing keeping me from converting everything
online to Windows Media is its limited support on Macs - but I doubt that
Mac users would support such a behemoth as Real/AOL/Time-Warner. Or would
they? What's the Mac contingent say?
