Default SCID database


Hi all,

There's a beatutiful chess database program called SCID (see
http://scid.sourceforge.net/).
I used it for quite some time. Now, I needed to reinstall my windows, and
decided
to download scid again. However, now it turns out that the reference
database of 500.000+
games is no longer available for download. The author of SCID claims to put
a new database there
with even 600.000+ within a week, but he did this claim in January 2003 :-)

I am completely satisfied with the old database (500.000+) but cannolt get
it. Has anyone
here a copy for me?

Cheers,

Arnold

I have the bandwidth ... but not Windows ... so i can't extract the database

Why not a simple .zip file ?
