what about this, a local advert in a sales paper for
Pc Advisor Cd Roms. 51 CD-Roms. Packed With Quality Software Price: £26

cheap at half the price

Doesn't it say somewhere on the discs "Not for resale"? Not that anyone takes any notice anyway...

  Jimmy14 18:17 27 Mar 2007

On the dvd it says, "Not to be sold seperately".

Mine go in the bin. Its really a bit daft buying them anyway as a lot of the software needs to be registered to get a serial number and if the disks are more than a couple of months old you can't register them as the site no longer exists. Most of the rest is available as a free download or trial from elsewhere.
Waste of money in my opinion.

obviously the guy hopes that no one knows that the software must be registered within a certain time , he has another lot for another magazine but he wants more money for them

He is welcome to try -some tyro will think them a bargain

I have all my '98 one bundled up and tucked away - you never know- some one one day ............

As Totally-braindead says. Mine go in the bin, or sometimes I put them in to a charity shop and are sold for 10p each. The latest one was sent to a Forum member who needed something that was only on the DVD issue.

"he has another lot for another magazine but he wants more money for them".....

Thus proving the guy has no taste in magazines???

Or any scruples. Some of the cd programs require registration online or code is in the magazine/time limited.
