I remember spending a long time (few years actually) on-and-off searching for the Windows version of the Dilbert Afterdark screensaver by Delrina. I came across the Mac version easily enough, and that was nice for my System 7.6 VM in SheepShaver, but the Windows version was extremely elusive. I think I finally found it on one of those personal ftp's. Lol As the OP says, the chase is part of the fun. In my various searches for games and some office software I hit Winworld, Vetusware, Archive.org, old-games.ru, and the-eye.eu pretty hard.
One thing I haven't found yet is .ima floppy images of the 1993 version of Stronghold by SSI. A .zip of the preinstalled game is easy enough to find, but not images of the original floppies. For me part of the fun is installing the games with their original installer programs 😀
Another thing that seems to have disappeared is the Second Nature Slideshow screensaver collections. That's my favorite wallpaper program for Windows 3.x. I still have my disks for the sets I bought back in the day. But nowadays, besides the sampler set, I rarely find any on the archive sites. I always wanted the Applejack Wolf Family set but haven't found it.
I too have been searching the internet for Second Nature screensavers. In around 1994 my brother bought me a Second Nature screensaver collection that was space art. It was beautiful. I had Win 3.1 at the time. A few years later I found Second Nature was still making screen savers and I was able to update my version to run on Windows XP. However about 10 years ago I moved to the UK and couldn't take much with me and I have lost my original disk(s) for that Second Nature collection and now that I have purchased a very nice retro P-III (3Dfx Voodoo 3 included!) I am trying so hard to find that collection again but only a few Second Nature collections are out there that I can find.... Anyone seen the space art one?
