Hi,

A few years ago I took a look at how well compressed the data for 9 fingers were on disk and ran into something quite unexpected. Parts of the source code is present on the floppy image. On disk1 part of the Protracker code is there and on disk2 parts of the actual demo code.

I used a tool called that allows you to load a binary file and see entropy and other things. So by downloading the two images from (the two adf files) and by looking at the light blue areas (ASCII) one can see parts of the code being there.

I haven't seen this reported anywhere so I figured it should just post it here :)



Cheers!

ehm.. so my links got stripped. Here they are binvis.io and spaceballs.untergrund.net/releases.html (also you need to click on the "broken" image above for it to show up)
