I'd be interested to hear how HD-installers are legally dubious, I'm highly doubtful that that is the case but maybe someone can point me to the relevant law? And in which country?

It it was actually true then surely we wouldn't be allowed to mention WHDLoad either, is that program considered "evil" around here!?

Sweet! Are you an active user of any retro platforms?

Well that doesn't mean he is an active user. I have tons of C= 8bit, but I cast off my Amiga stuff a year of so ago.

I'd bet a good part of the users here aren't active:-(

Hey Bro, not really gaming on much retro these days. Too many hobbies to support already. Thanks for the offer though!

 :-o look who's talking! Minuous (aka James Jacobs), from when  are you interested in laws? I remember you hosted pirated AmigaOS3.9, ROMs and various keyfiles on your site just few months ago! Needless to say you endangered Amiga.org if your site, at that time, was listed here in the links section.

Nicely put Wayne. So well put, in fact, that I've decided to open my own piracy can of worms. Dig in - they're free!

Here we go again. :madashell: Haven't you caused enough bad blood between Amiga users. It's time to grow up and stop attacking.

You know, it really sounds good when YOU say something like that

Edited by Argo: Link to site removed - Piracy , DID you not get the Memo!

EDIT: you see Lopos? Even the link to your thread on EAB where you're informing about your "great" site has been removed - in a few seconds!
(Sorry Argo)
