    You may notice that your computer may get heavily bogged down due to the massive amount of videos/images posted. Sometimes it may overload the server or sometimes it may just be your computer having trouble to pick up all packets of data. Other may be due to where the images are hosted.

    The threads that post such stuff really bring my computer to its knees and a 6 core processor, 8 gigs of ram and a 60mb/s connection really shouldn't be a problem. But still this site finds a way.

    I think this happens when the picture comes from Russian sites

    here's some examples:

    Chrome:

    Could very well be. It should be mandatory on the forums that hotlinking should be a no no (I think it already is) and using sites like imgur may be far more appropriate as a source of hosting images.

    Also, I avoid using chrome. You should try using Yandex Browser or Firefox.

    is this possible?

    yesterday i had this idea about a compression method in computer science.
    is like this. lets say we assign to the whole ASCII code a number each 3 digits. every ASCII character and symbol would have it's own number.
    then we take something for example a game. we take all the characters and symbols of the game from it's source code and we give each the number from what i've said above. we then create a number raised at a power wich give when calculate a long long row of numbers exacly like all the numbers in the row of the game code. when we will extract the game all to do is calculate the number raised at the power then each 3 digits in the result would be the corresponding character or symbol. thus if i'm not wrong a whole game of 3 GB let's say can be compressed into few bits.
    can work?

    So you are suggesting assigning a number code to a number code?

    Ascii is a numeric code to represent a letter or character already... ie 0 to 255

    It is an 8bit representation system... 8bit being 2 to the power of 8, or 2x2x2x2x2x2x2x2=256 which equals the numbers from 0 to 255.

    The advent of non european users of computers have made ASCII totally obsolete so Unicode is used instead... the current UTF-32 uses 32 bit encoding... so instead of 256 combinations you can have just under 4.3 billion possible characters... so it can include the letters in pretty much any or all languages...

    well sort of....add the fact that the entire compressed file is sent as a single ( or couple) number(s) raised at a power ....
    there was a explanation that i received from someone that that is not possible because prime numbers are rarely.
    how that comes?
    point is also that on your own pc you dont need all the languages. you can have the native language and english or something else for international speak
