Z is for Zip

Z is for Zip

2019-02-2201:12:09

It's not how big it is ... er yeah. So rounding out the alphabet and we're talking Zip files and other compression algos in this month's rather technical tech segment.Including a brief history, an almost certainly incorrect break down of how compression works and a lot of trolls (of the patent variety) it's a nice enough way to end the season. And let's face it, it's the only tech thing beginning with Z of any note.
