Really?

I found this rather amusing. While zipping a file this morning at work, the little progress window popped which tells you how long it'll take to process the task. I didn't think much of it, until I saw that it was going to take about 2,023,406,814 hours to finish zipping the file! It's a good thing that the 2+ billion hours is almost up...I'd be waiting for a loooong time.

Oh...and 2+ billion hours = about 231,000 years.

ha, that is pretty funny. When I first saw that image on my screen, I thought my computer was doin' something funky....I almost went to click stop. So...then I take it you are still waiting for the file to zip its way to where it is going? That is going to take a long time :)
