    Unhappy Achievements in network throughput - data compression and encode.su are dead

    Today, RFC 5984 (Increasing Throughput in IP Networks) was released. It contains some interesting and very advanced ideas that will make data compression needless, at least in the large field of data transmission. So as much as I appreciate the work that has been done working on these new methods, I know that this will be very likely the end of encode.su, so let me say I really enjoyed the discussions with all you people here before the forum goes down.

    By the way, I think they had the help of some people from here or from comp.compression to achieve this breakthrough - the PPG method sounds very familiar.

    Damn kids. They're all alike.

    Now this is a great opportunity! You need a lot of compression to store all the pr0n you can download!

    lol, but lossless compression won't help as we know - and lossy compression is already pritty good (h264). Of course there is (hopefully) still a lot of room for improvements in efficiency for moved pics (same quality with significally less data).

    Coincidentally, on the exact anniversary of the introduction of Carrier Pigeon Protocol. http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc1149.html

    Lossless compression will never die! A small example on music files. I have enough free space to keep all music in WAV/PCM format. But, we have FLAC. My MP3 player supports FLAC, WinAmp and SoundForge can Open/Play FLAC files natively. Yep, it's a bad idea to compress all music to 128kbps MP3, but FLAC is lossless. So, no reason to just waste disk space!

    I don't want to know how much TB more my stuff (most of this stuff are mods) would occupy without compression...
