I just realised that a whole lot of files, including the latest batch of cpr files, have been uploaded to the wiki as .cpr . Which means, 256KB. This is happening a lot with .dsk and .hfe files, too.
Come on people, is it so hard to compress them? a RAR or a ZIP file would take probably two seconds of your time and save us 3/4s of the original size!
Yeah, it's not like we're going to run out of space from them, but let's try and keep things tidy and tight.
PS Just queried the db, there are 145MB of uncompressed files. I think if these were compressed it would've saved us around 100-110MB, easily, in the forum alone...
On a slightly related note: Have you recently reduced the total size allowed for multiple files per post? In the past I could upload several hi-res pictures to a single post, when I tried to do this lately it told me I had gone above the limit.
I don't think so... let me check.
No, the limits are 10 attachments/1,5MB per attachment/1,5MB total. It was always the same btw. You think I should up it?
No it's ok. Maybe the other files were smaller back then. I reduced their size slightly and all was ok.
Oops, too late :) I raised it to 2MB/2MB/15!
That's ok too :) If I'm home in time I'll be uploading some photos of the restored Rombo :)
Anything to motivate you :D
