Im working on a remote desktop application for my company and in the
course, had to study some source code of RealVNC.It uses a method of
encoding known as hextile encoding , I implemented a variation of that
algorithm(in delphi) and added a few tricks of my own and surprisingly
it compresses much better than PNG GIF ZIP RAR et al.The results seem
so promising that im gonna make it a standalone utility ( GPL of
course ;-) )

Comments anyone?
