So, I've no idea how that guy managed to squeeze it down so much, but after a week of importing (and a hour or so compressing) I got down to 930Mb, which is pretty close to what Donnie managed earlier. I can do increments pretty easily now, and I'm having a go repacking it at - --window=100 (I don't want to push the depth up much more since it has an affect on decompression). Also, it's all in one big pack file, which may not be ideal. So all in all, my experiments didn't turn up anything new, but nevermind... 5:) Mike 5:) -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.9 (GNU/Linux) iEYEARECAAYFAkmIFRAACgkQu7rWomwgFXqbHACgn0ow7NzXO5v4e7VXW2gchnkk AIMAoJWZnWsTYovAFIQWSTwWhkFEc9wN =LCW3 -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
