in thread Data compression by 50% + : is it possible?

but you are wrong.

Prove it!

Take time out of your always 'too busy' schedule, and post some code. Working, code. Code that I can throw a few sample datasets at and see if you roboticus have really defeated a 30+ y/o CompSci theoretical fact.

If you can post code that can compress *all* OP-compliant datasets, by more that 16.67%; I'll buy you him dinner.

Better still -- and you'll like this idea -- I'll stop coming around here.

So, PROVE IT!; or forever pursue your favorite pastime and "hold your piece".
