Oh, you're brave.  I'm not too familiar with the legislation.  Somewhere I
read that in order to sue for copyright infringement in the US, the plaintiff
would have to show that the defendant has caused financial damage.  But I'm
not sure if that is required in Finland.

Well, I suggest that you bring your copy up to date with rsync, and I provide
you with .tar.gz archives of the removed files (16 MB plus/4 games, 4 MB
VIC-20 software, and the Commodore 64 KERNALs).

I have added a few files every now and then, but there is quite a bit of
material in "incoming" that I haven't come around to evaluating and sorting.

I'd like to archive those if they are different.

I also have a collection of some fastloader images.  I don't think it is right
to distribute JiffyDOS, as it is still available for purchase, but what about
other fastloaders, such as SpeedDOS and DolphinDOS?  Or fastloader cartridges?
