7-Zip RULEZ!
Holy cow! Forget everything I told you before about UHarc. 7-Zip rulez. It uses the LZMA method, and it compressed those same files in 1 minute and 58 seconds, to 17.5MB!!! I got UHarc to get the same size by increasing the dictionary (because I noticed that 7-Zip uses a large dictionary too), but still, it took 4 minutes and 28 seconds, and used about 250MB of memory to compress them. So, the new comparison table is: WinZIP WinRAR WinUHA (32MB dictionary) 7-Zip Time to compress (mm:ss) 00:13 01:07 ......

Have you guys heard of something called UHarc? I just found out today, because I had this file with extension .uha, and I wanted to know what it was. It's an interesting thing.

Still late, but with lots of news. :)
Well, the last post is still valid. :) I'm basically at the same point, and I can tell you that I still will be late, at least for the next month. I've just moved to another country, and that's not an easy thing to do, and that's the reason why I'm late with my personal projects. Anyway, I'll tell you something, folks... London is a great, great city. I am still living in a hotel, which sucks (not the hotel, but living in one), but this has been a great experience. The UK keyboards are lame, though. ......
