So I came across the existence of a product
Title: Linux Spiele & Games
Publisher: Mediengesellschaft
Date: May, 2000
ISBN: 3-89826-515-3
EAN: 9 783898 265157

It is a collection of various software and 1,000 redistributable GNU/Linux games. I've counted and studied UVL entires and estimated the math. If, by May 2000, there were 1,000 redistributable GNU/Linux in the world, and not counting a few commercial ones, and by the most generous numbers possible in UVL's favor, we're at least 500 hundred entries short for the pre-May-2000 mark.

So, a UVL editor needs to buy Linux Spiele & Games to get the informations. I'd like very much to own it personally. Thus far my searching has only resulted in ausverkauft, falscheware, and kein schiff für dich.

I might have good news... stay tuned...

Ok, I found a German shop that sells it.

I just bought the article twice! One for me, one which I could send to you. Alternatively I would send you the contents of the cd-roms etc. It will take some time until it arrives at my home and I am not often at home the next time. With any luck I will have it next weekend. If not I will have to wait for 3 weeks. But I think the most important thing is that this article (book + 2 cd-roms") is complete and has everything included.

That was fast! Thank you! Danke!

That's one of the sites that wouldn't ship it to me (I think that was what was said to me in German).

I realize the CD is filled with redistributable content, but, sadly, copyright still applies to the rest of it in my jurisdiction. And I'd like the rest of it :) I'll buy the physical package from you please.

Darn! What's the current state of editor messaging at UVL. Oh well, I'll just relay my address to Andrea. Oh wait, I think I have your email. Someone didn't use BCC (tee hee hee).

interesting fact: China apparently has a cut-off point whereby mostly non-proprietary makes something fully non-proprietary).
