it's only purple on thursdays
While I wait for Gentoo 1.4 (which should hopefully be available within the next two weeks) I’ve left my Windows partition after a recent LAN gaming session. During this time of horrors, I stumbled across 7-Zip. Claiming to be “a file archiver with highest compression ratio.” Could it be? I’ve found a compression that’s better than RAR? Well okay I know several better than RAR. Here’s my results of an impromptu test of it (disclaimer: please ignore this test completely since it’s me picking some random directory and compressing it and choosing what I think are the highest settings of the archive):
Original Size: 395k, 34 files WinRar: 301k 7z: 299k
Interesting results, nothing worth switching for, their page has a proper test.
And so while I wait, I thought I’d play around with a new site layout, something simpler, with… drumroll links on the LEFT! I’d thought I would conform for once. And I’ll probably get rid of the magic changing styles. And try and improve my code area.
Xenith pointed me to this short yet humorous collection of Movie GoOfs.
