UPX works well on some of the files, not so hot on others. the NSIS
generated files fail UPX, but this is possibly because of a CRC check.
However, there is great success in compressing firefox.exe from 7MB
down to 2.5MB, when the archive is decompressed. Unfortunately, this
deflated size adds up to an even larger compressed sfx archive, even
under LZMA Ultra. However... if you UPX the LZMA Ultra of the regular
size archive, you get a 100K reduction. Small, but significant over a
I haven't spoken much about it, but does anyone think a self-destruct
button on Torpark would be worthwhile? It would wipe the whole Torpark
application and directories, and kill the processes (and possibly
close the connections, if we get technical about it.)
