    It's not Nullsoft, AFAIK. It's AOHell.

    i heard something similar. can't be bothered checking it up right now though :|

    and yerman who made winamp day one, he's fairly wealthy i believe. it's cool to get rich off a free app! probably made lots of money off aol/tw.
    Hmm...theres something a little peculiar here. Oh i see what it is! the sentence is talking about itself! do you see that? what do you mean? sentences can\'t talk! No, but they REFER to things, and this one refers directly-unambigeously-unmistakably-to the very sentence which it is!
