going to fucking scream if i download another torrent to find that
- the torrent's creator has put each file into its own individual rar file
- the rar files have been split into like 20+ parts
- the file contained within the rar file in fact did not benefit from compression in any way
@maffsie This is likely something directly ripped from newsgroups with a per-post size limit, and meant to maintain compatibility if you only have a partial download from there. Newsgroups first, torrent second.
@kithop i see; i've never used a newsgroup service so to me it just seemed like the uploader was a major asshole, i guess that makes sense then
@maffsie Yeah, used to be (and still kind of is) a huge deal: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usenet_newsgroup#Binary
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
