The Pricelessware CDs
Each year, the alt.comp.freeware newsgroup used to put together a list of "the best of the best in Freeware", the Pricelessware List.
From 2004 to 2008, members of the group also distributed CDs with many of the Pricelessware applications, and you're free to redistribute them as well. More information about Pricelessware and the CDs is available at archive.org's copy of the old Pricelessware site. If you can't find answers there, try asking in a.c.f.
Please don't use download managers that try to establish multiple connections to this server. There is enough bandwidth for everyone, but there are not extra connection slots. If you try to make more than one connection at a time, you are likely to have them rejected. Worse, you are likely to cause other users to have their connections rejected also.
If you have any trouble getting the files, try turning off any obfuscation features in your client.
Warning: the software on the CDs is quite old now. Use it at your own risk.
