Of course.  Anyone can reduce any arbitrary file down to 5 bytes -- You
could just truncate it.  The hard part is to recreate the original file
from the 'compressed' file.

So far six people have complained that they can't reach my site.  One said
my webserver is down.  Another said that traceroute showed 'a routing
problem' to squeeze.iconn.net.  These are the same people who operate the
internet in North America, yes?

Oh well.
