I find this a bit hard to swallow.
2,340 Gigabytes on one floppy?
Pull that one off SUCCESSFULLY and I'll see you get the Nobel Prize.

> Coming soon! Image putting greater than 3600 CD's worth of data on a
floppy disk. Or take a Gigabyte worth of data and compress it to under
400bytes. I purchased /View/Pro and will most likely purchase runtime
licenses once they are available for /View and begin distribution of NEW
compression software depending on the licensing terms available. Imagine
with 400 byes of compressed data (representing a gig or more) what this
could mean to handheld devices like portable mp3 players or digital cameras.
The capablity to store your entire mp3 collection in a portable device. I
know your interested but you will have to wait a bit longer. Thanks to the
guys in the IRC REBOL channel on EFNET for your help and cooperation (you
know who you are).
