That page says the MAC address is kept in a registry key. Surely the OS
doesn't look up the value on each packet sent? Does anyone know if the
Windows registry supports key change notifications? Or does this mean
you have to reboot your system every time you want to change the MAC
address?

(Reply to me if you mind the off-topic nature of this thread.)
