And yes I will supply the decompressor to.
I hope you will learn anything from this but to think such a
file is random is to not understand what random is in my estimation.
But I think this was a weakness in enigma to during WWII.

Adacrypt's definition of random appears to be "has no repeats".

His mind is about as closed as its ever been when trying to shift
this misconception from his understanding.

Information theory, Shannon Entropy and the meaning of compressibility
are so far out of his realm of understanding that its not worth
bothering with. Best to use concepts no harder than high school
