BOSS: King… Alice tells me you have another fiendish idea that will revolutionize software cruelty.
KING: … no, not really.
ALICE: Don’t be so modest. Boss, I overheard King talking about a USB-based software dongle with a built-in USB port, allowing it to be chained to other dongles. That would allow us to require a dongle for every piece of software we sell.
BOSS: A PC capable of supporting an infinite number of dongles. Interesting.
KING: Well… “infinite” is a bit of an exaggeration. USB supports up to 126 devices. You couldn’t have any more than that.
BOSS: 126 dongles is more than anyone will ever need!
