I still think The Underdogs are the best for abandonware. Also, they are pretty strict about not supplying software that hasn't been officially declared abandonware (ie. no illegal games).

Id consider enforced legality a drawback more than an advantage, the more games the better. A company may still hold the rights to a game but if they lack the means to enforce it, its fair game. Old games are like old hardware, interesting, but absolutely not worth paying for.

Even though there's no reasonable way of getting hold of the software anymore, I still don't think it's a valid reason to steal other people's work. It's a pity LucasArts and Bethesda doesn't release their old games for the public (although Bethesda did release The Elder Scrolls: Arena not long ago), but pity isn't enough to turn me into a thief.

 

I'm in a bad position to discuss these things though, as I've been lucky getting a job that supplies me with tons of games, both old and new (we are working on a retro section).

of course that happens so fast that you are dead (and ripped apart atom by atom) before you even notice it ..

... but it would feel like forever as time would elongate to infinity for you as you approached the point of singularity.

The fur of Polar Bears is not whilte, it is hollow and scatters light like snow.

Polar Bears also give off no heat.

I'm not from Norway, but some corroborating evidence:
