That's a really horrible pun, so if I go missing in the next few days, Urwumpe or jedidia probably decided that it merited summary execution and dragged me into a dark alley somewhere.

Don't worry, we'll just force you to listen to the best German jokes during the weekend. Its like Vogon poetry, just worse. :lol:

Need an example?

Der Richter zum Angeklagten: “Sie sind beschuldigt, Ihren Nachbarn unter Schimpfworten in den Wald getrieben und dort ganz fürchterlich verprügelt zu haben. Sind Sie da nicht ein bisschen zu weit gegangen, Angeklagter?” Antwort: “Ja, das stimmt, Herr Richter! Ich hätte es schon vorher auf der Wiese tun sollen!”

Yawn...

Once one has been exposed to Monty Python and "Wenn ist das Nunstuck git und schlottermeyer? usw.", less fatal puns just don't have much effect.

For everybody else, Urwumpe's joke is:

Judge: "You stand accused, after an argument with your neighbor, of chasing him into the woods and beating him. Didn't you go a bit too far?"

Defendant: "I sure did. I should have beaten him on my front lawn!"

BTW: Who uses 7-zip should urgently update it, it has a critical memory leak vulnerability.

If a file is in the 7-zip format that's what I use. I'm not a pc guru, as you probably noticed.

When can WinRar not do the job? :O
What? I haven't heard of rar and/or winrar being used since the 90s, what's the point of using that fossil these days?

And really, same can be said about 7zip - it's just a Windows gizmo that is more annoying and not much better than the standard, transparent zip compression present in every OS for decades.

Wrong - it supports the ZIP64 format, which the standard tools did not have until recently (Those have a 4 GB file limit), this also makes it much better than the standard GNU zip tools. And the native 7z format compresses better than the standard zip or the zlib libraries.

And its no windows gizmo. Its a linux gizmo that does not hate windows. :p

like the man said - and for us poor folks with very slow internet , key is 7-zip supports multi-part zips so can download those large files like satnav updates (from VW!) in bits outside peak times . . .

Back when I spent much time on Windows, I used 7zip not so much for the 7z format but because it had support for a good number of different archive formats in one tool.

On Linux, that's not so much of a concern.
