Heres one that claims to have out of print 'Abandonware' Games & such:



Alot of these games are older things that have been released to freeware but Civ 3 & 4, Tomb Raiders maybe 5 of them I dont think so.

The stuff is downloadable & seems to be virus free .
I cant vouch for the veracity of the games etc. because Ive not tried any of them.But it looks OK.


Since this sort of thing is unwanted here I have removed the link.

I also download TV shows & Movies from various sites but I dont want to put up any links without knowing if its OK here.

These would definitely be considered Pirate sites.

Well, OK Then,thats a noble sacrifice.

But think about this youre out of a job ,probably because of the economy that was ruined by rich dishonest people in the finance business Who reaped great rewards, lost next to nothing in the downturn & are reaping great rewards again, already.

Leaving the bill for the financial disaster for the bottom 90% of us to pay off with great financial hardship for all & financial ruin for many.

The wealthy have all the lobbyists on their payroll & the government paid off to do their bidding.

A friend of mine in 1974 or 5 told me that us mid to later baby boomers would be a skipped 'generation' that by the time things got better we would be to old to ever have any real prosperity.

This was 5 or 6 years before Ron Reagan made sure his prophecy would come true.
Any economic system that doesnt work for Everybodydoesnt work. period.

I know media conglomerates claim they are Losing all this revenue but they are not.95% of pirates would not have bought what they acquired for free anyway.If 'stealing has become this easy & this harmless the entertainment industry needs to find a new model. one that doesnt include
Millionaires & Billionaires. Their model is as dead as the Dodo.

Besides it isnt hurting hi expense blockbuster movies look at the great movie 'John Carter'{of Mars}the movie was fantastic but miss named & barely marketed at all.

Disney didnt seem to care that they could have made a bundle by actually telling people @ that movie.


I went , I spent saw it 3x in 3D maybe 7 times in total.
They did something worthwhile & I paid them for it.

Take the Master it was so awful that I should have been able to get my cash back it was an insult to my intelligence & a total waste of my time.

I cant get a refund on that detestable product.I was bilked.I was robbed.


if none of this convinces you that No ONE with any power is playing fair.
Always remember you can reward the good with your money when you have some again.


Just a thought I would pay @ the same for a land-line & dial-up,Cable TV or hi speed Inet.If I chose to be 'honest' I would have to have gone with Cable TV & couldnt be here to verbally strike a blow for 'Freedom'.

DO not let the filthy rich win with all their lies.
It is time to take back 'Merica!
Take it back form the plutocracy that is bleeding us dry.

Thank you for your support.

I think people who pirate any sort of electronic media suck.

Mostly I go to Facebook, Gamefaqs and the Steam group I run.

i been reading Whoosh site a lot lately. After watching Xena or other times. They never did fill in the gaps on many early eps. i wish they had but its still fun to read their views on the shows even if i disagree with a lot of what they say.

My first bookmarks were the scrolls, Tom's Xena Page and Bomp Records Link Page which led me to a bajillion music sites. The Bomp links page no longer exists sadly. When i got a new comp last year i weeded out many dead bookmark links- & have since added many more.
