    1 As I stated before all compression is random if people want to believe it or not. it just looks non random when dealing with it from another perspective. Cant find new ideas when stuck with the same methods and views.
    2 But I dont think a programmers way of thinking can achieve it since they ignore point 1. Just like how an painter can not understand a programmer in how they perceive things. As the saying goes jack of all trades master of none. And if a person is a master in programming it is hard to understand various other persecutes since time and memory is limited.

    3 If one wants to not revealed the code then might as well be anonymous as well.
    4 If point 3 applies then you have to have a dead mans switch as stated become.

    5 I assume if 2 people win the top prize the money will be split.
    6 the top prize is not enough compared to what its worth since many companies from cloud storage are getting billions, but society is not progressing but at a stand still so it is a matter of profit & stagnation vs ethics & progress, which should be talked about but most wont understand. I assume most here seem to have ethics from the comments they say but maybe it might have a limit when higher price comes to play as it seems with this prize.

    Agree or not its just another view.

    Hi , I have made good progress coding done compressor and
    have now greatly made simpler decompressor

    At moment decompressor works direct from compressed internal variables decompressed exact same.

    There is only work to separate into encoder decoder. But do not underestimate the amount of 'mundane' tedious work involved .Likely will be a week's time to able do as requested.

    But we can and should already be celebrating.

    ( now can handle any size input also )

    Are these inputs random files?

    Sportman's provided random files

    ( pls leave any further requests for technical details for
    when separate encoder decoder done. None will be responded at this time)

    Random files? You mean: more? I thought it was jut a zstd file.
    So you have different files, right? That's good! I just wanted to ask you to double check the results with real random files. xinix also posted one. You also referred to random.org files in your earlier posts, so I believe you have now some test files with you.

    So what are the (preliminary?) results? What are we celebrating?

  6. Thanks:

    Celebrating 1st time ever random files compressed a little smaller and reconstructs exact same

    ( no further details will be provided until separate encoder decoder done )

    Subject to eventual final confirmation with separate encoder decoder over 2 clean PCs

    I'm trying to understand what's happening.
    So, we had breakthroughs in 2007, 2015, 2020, and now in 2021. The messages switching between significant savings and "little smaller".
    At this point this is what I get: no breakthroughs, the previous attempts were false alarms. This time you can probably save a couple of bytes with not completely random files. (Which is belivable).

    Your request for "be patient" tells me that you are more careful this time. I think it's wise, and I respect that.
