Never having been a computer scientist, I wonder: is there such a thing as a program that is not susceptible to being reverse-engineered/disassembled/decompiled/whateveryoucallit?

If yes, then a program meeting this qualification could be provided on the gtr1 site. After being downloaded once to the user's system, it could generate an output value uniquely associated with both (a) any particular week's vendor data and (b) the user's 'account name' on the gtr1 server. The same operation would be performed on the gtr1 server, and the 2 generated values would be required to match.
