when was the last time you saw a game that would fit on one floppy
the size of software today keeps most people from pirating most software

Believe it or not, Final Fantasy 5-Jap-translated is exactly 1.38MB big ;) It's an awesome game, some time ago I had 4 free weeks to play it every day 10 hrs/day. What is funny about this game is that it was released exactly the same month/year when SquareSoft released Final Fantasy 7 on 4 CDs .

as a fact of the matter I'm on a adsl connection and there are few web pages that run at the full speed of this rather slow adsl line 78 kB per sec down 39 kB up at least doing down loads so even with broadband size matters

well you do have a point

BUT going to software pirate web sites is asking for trouble any one who will do nasty things to programmers will do nasty things to you ( I found this out by just looking at these sites) and thay do nasty things to each other

BUT why steal software when there is plenty of free software around
