    That's a good idea. I feel sorry for the guys who spent all that 
time to become really good, because when they wax you fast on a 
consistent basis it seems your always (I am) thinking "are they really 
that good or are they cheating?". But when I see someone real good, and 
I'm pretty sure their not cheating, it gives me hope. By the way, what 
kind of cheating does Anti-TCC prevent?
