I love compression.. It’s amazing to me.. how it works, THAT it works.. and how WELL it works.
I ran into this statistic today.. Just HAD to share:
What is the most compressed file ever?
- There is a zip bomb called 42.zip
- The file is 42.374 bytes when zipped
- when unzipped, this file is 4.503.599.626.321.920 bytes (4.5 petabytes)
