Hi there!

Whah! What a crap thing some smartasses invented here :x

So what when it can pack some % better than ZIP or RAR!

Hey, for that single minute it saves me when downloading 450MB instead of 480MB, I then sit and wait a complete extra hour for that crappy tool to unpack it, while keeping my computer so busy that it won't run anything else during that time! :x :x

Greetings,
Manuel

Cybergoth,

7-ZIP takes that long because it has to decode the [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quark"]"Flavor", "Spin", and "Colour"[/url] of the quarks on the hard-drive platter.

I use 7-ZIP the tool, but never 7-ZIP the format. gz is as fancy as I'll go. Although rumor has it that 7-ZIP can compress a 4K Atari binary down to just 3 bytes, if you've got a couple hours to kill. :lol:

Oh, cool! I guess that provides some interesting lecture, while my next download unpacks... :lol:

Well sure, 3 bytes could denote up to ~17 million different ROMs. Just need a big lookup table, that's all. :lol:

I loaded 7 zip and never again. Crashed the OS Windows 7 then would not uninstall and to make matters worse would not allow anything to be loaded the even remotely looked zipped or compressed. Spent days attempting to fix OS after I installed this crap software. Forced to reinstall the Windows 7 OS from scratch.

So I hate 7 Zip for good reasons.
