Re: Re[2]: Torpark Pre-release

You might try UPX to see how it compares to 7zip compression. I find it's almost always better.
From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UPX
"... as UPX is specifically designed to compress executable code it often achieves better compression ratio than standard data compression facilities such as gzip, zip or bzip2. "

I used 7zip, which compressed the 24MB down to about 7MB

Right now I am using Adblock with the Filterset.G updater.
