Hi, I have got a question. confronted with so many MB worth downbloading I have the problem that I can't afford it anymore. I do not live in the US and I have to connect to my IP via a long distance call. So I wonder, does anybody download all the files from the NG and put them on a CD? I am really interested in this. Does anybody know anything? I am willing to pay an approbiate price ($30) for good pictures. I am interested in pictures, sounds and everything concerning Multi Media, TV, SciFi.... Please Email me. Thank you very much. Bye, Felix

A number of jack-leg entrepreneurs make a good living selling CD-ROMs of the material from binary posting groups, without regard to copyright problems. Public-domain software and source material is available on CD-ROM from several publishers, and can be found in the catalogs of various computer supply houses. A number of television shows have legally-authorized CD-ROM releases on the market; one of the most fun is the "BABYLON 5" screen saver disk, which is loaded with images, movie clips, and sound excerpts. (This one I even know the price of, offhand; about $25.00 ) It's called the "BABYLON 5 ENTERTAINMENT UTILITY," and it's from "Sound Source Interactive," 2985 E. Hillcrest Drive, Suite A, Westlake Village, Ca, 91362; phone is (805) 494-9996. I believe they take credit card orders over the phone. Note; this is a DOS/PC program set, not real useful if you're on a Mac'N'Wak. It seems to work fairly well with Windows 3.1(1) and Windows 95, and I was able to read the image/movie/sound files on a workstation running LINUX. I have no connection with "Sound Source Interactive," other than enjoying their product.
