That would explain why every zip decompression utility I've tried thinks it's

Are you ready for the shocking truth... not every computer in the world runs
Windows, so unless you've developed this purely for the friends and family
you've convinced to do so you may want to rethink your approach to testing.

That may be so, but when my 100Mbit/s connection finally managed to download
the file it took about 4 minutes, which is nowhere near 2MB/s. Your homepage
takes 7 seconds to load - that's unacceptable in the real world, especially
when you're talking about a server that's (and I'm only guessing here) not
under heavy load.
Anyway, your comment about waiting for the nets (sic) to catch up so it can
cope with your bloat has convinced me to not bother looking any further into
your project, but I wish you the best of luck with it (you're gonna need it).
