I shouldn't post anything that would distract you from the fine games on BYOND.com , but some of you might be interested in signing up for the beta of Good Old Games (http://www.gog.com/en/intro).
The three most appealing points, IMHO:
"2. So you?re cheap. It?s okay ? we are, too.
We sell games for $5.99 and $9.99."
"3. You buy it, you keep it.
Don't let your DRMs turn into nightmares (clever, eh?). You won't find any intrusive copy protection in our games; we hate draconian DRM schemes just as much as you do, so at GOG.com you don't just buy the game, you actually own it."
"4. All games are Vista and XP compatible.
Thanks to our handsome programming team, the classics are now Windows Vista and Windows XP compatible."
Sounds worth a try -- if you've already bought a BYOND membership, at any rate!
 On a completely unrelated note, today I edited the index.html file of my long-standing GUG.COM site so that it immediately redirects to BYOND.COM.
