[sharing] reading computers serial number

    Apr 05 2006 | 7:42 am
    For a long time I've been struggling with a simple way to obtain computers serial number, in order to get a way to create simple challenge response copy protection sheme for max applications - not that I ever really needed it, but it's been in my head for quite a while.
    This question has been raised several times on the forums and I don't remember it was answered before.
    Using shell object, you can read machine serial using "System Profiler" command. There is all other interesting system info contained in there.
