Hallo Marko,

I thouhgt it was less confusion answering this part sepperatly.

Some questions purely out of curiousity:
Where is the compression good for? In general you gain about 50%.
If a P700 needs 30 seconds to compress, how much time does the VIC20 need to
decompress it, even it is a part?
Is there more info available, SW, HW, maybe site?

Groetjes, Ruud
