@PROBLEMCHYLD:

So I was trying to upload your service pack in here to give you a second mirror. While Namecheap were fixing this issue related to file uploads, which they seem to have solved now by the way, one of the customer support people told me this:

PS: As it is not allowed to store any warez on our hosting - it maybe better to post just links to some 3rd-party file sharing services instead of openly uploading "unofficial service packs", etc.

As far as I know, your service pack does not contain full Windows 98 SE nor any serial number but only DLLs and patches etc. just like a service pack, right?

They think that the unofficial Windows 98 second edition service pack is warez? WTF?

Am I missing something here or is the customer support person just waaay off? *lol* :lol:

By the way, is it OK that I put up a mirror for your service pack? If that is not OK and you like the downloads to be only from your own server, just let me know and I will remove it again.
:!:

Perhaps you should setup a backup server in case Namecheap go all soup nazi on you? You are welcome to use our dedicated server. It does not have 100% uptime but close to 95%. Should be good enough.

Thank you very much for the offer. We'll see how things go with Namecheap and we'll await PROBLEMCHYLD to confirm that the SP is legit. I personally know that his SP is legit but it's good to have his official word about it as well.
:D

Yes, you guys are more than welcome to host the SP, the more mirrors the better. Just make sure the checksums matches the ones from the original site.

Code: Select all

CHECKSUMS
  CRC32:9603F3D5
  MD4:097144C8E20612A00188932800000000
  MD5:A292686C9AD861DBA590AA3600000000
  SHA1:42B4733369CBAD244C05FF95699944EFBE371BD5
The SP is legit. I have been working on it over a year and a half. In three months, it will be 2 full years. Microsoft has NOT taken any action because I haven't done anything illegal. Its just a bunch of hotfixes from MS updates (free) all package up for users convenience. Nothing against fool's design or any other website, but it turns my stomach when I see people trying to protect Microsoft who don't give 2 fucks about their customers.

We absolutely agree with you but because of the note the customer support person wrote to us, we had to ask and double check with you because in case they would turn our hosting plan off, we would have a legitimate answer for them in case we were to sue them and also a backup plan in case they shut the Web site down.

The good folks at ParanormalStories.com have offered us to use their dedicated server as a backup server in case things go cafluey and we are grateful for their offer.

Agreed! I think most people are afraid of lawyers. We are not because we are not doing anything wrong. :lol: There is nothing wrong with putting Microsoft's public hotfixes and package them together. THEY CAN FUCK OFF. ;)

Thanks for the permission. I downloaded the file to my desktop (virtualized and super secure) and then attached it to your original post. I just re-downloaded the file from forums and checked the checksum with Microsoft File Checksum Integrity Verifier and the checksums matches.

Code: Select all

C:UsersNon Hic>fciv.exe U98SESP3.EXE -sha1
//
// File Checksum Integrity Verifier version 2.05.
